BREWERY PLANS (Week two of June 8th – 14th) 2015

Week two of June is in the books and we are in full swing on this project.  We have a lot going on and a lot to do to get this little beer making warehouse opened up and running.  From sizing up our refrigeration equipment, designing keg collars, setting budgets, planning beer brewing schedules, working to get our socal gas meter paid for and installed.  Every angle of this project is hitting right now.  We’re enjoying the process, some stressful times but this is what it’s all about!  The plan is coming to life!

Here’s the visual of the week.  The first picture is how our brew equipment sits right now.  And the CAD drawing is what Derrick is working on to design the functionality of the system.  Valves, pumps, fittings and tubing all need to be planned out exactly.  The equipment and process to make beer is also an art in itself and it’s great to have a brilliant mind part of this project.

We also continue to meet new Founding Members as new ones continue to join our beer club.  Very exciting times as the valley begins to hear about what we have going on!  The support of all of you is what keeps us going!  We see a light at the end of the tunnel but still have a lot of work, time and money to get this brewery open.  Stay Tuned!

BREWERY PLANS (Week one of June 1st – 7th) 2015

New Month = another month of Rent due!  One of the budget items that stings while doing the brewery build out!

On a positive note … plumbing continued this week.  Sinks and water heaters have been installed.

We’re spending some behind the scenes time on the beer.  Dialing in recipes for the larger system and working on our descriptions and branding for each beer.  This is the fun stuff and we can’t wait to drop this information to everyone.

Behind the scenes work on tasting room options is also on the map and we hope to have information on that soon!

We also continue to meet new Founding Members as new ones continue to join.  We hit a milestone of 100+ members and we also hit a social media milestone by breaking the 1,000+ fans on Facebook mark.  Very exciting times as the valley begins to hear about what we have going on!  The support of all of you is what keeps us going!  We see a light at the end of the tunnel but still have a lot of work, time and money to get this brewery open.  Stay Tuned!

BREWERY PLANS (Week four of MAY 22rd – 31st) 2015

Last week of May round up over here at 8one8 Brewing

During this week we had the opportunity to meet many of our Founding Members!  It has been great to meet everyone and hear their stories along with sharing our stories.  At this point we have 100 members and we look forward to meeting all of them.  Fathers Day is coming up in June, click here to get Dad a membership ->

We attended the Greater San Fernando Valley Chamber Network Breakfast.  It was great to meet others business owners in the community and receive positive feedback for our new venture.

On the construction front, we finished our FRP panel installation, began to run the electrical cable and put the roof on the cold box.  The best news of the week is that we received sign off and permits for our medium pressure gas line.  This means that we can now finish up construction!

We wrapped up the week/month on Sunday getting down to beer business.  We spent the day brainstorming and planning.  We have a prototype tap handle, keg collar and fine tuned the beer lineup!

As we wrap up May we sit at a countdown of 79 days until our target opening date.  Pending construction, inspections and equipment setup all going as planned!  June is a big month for us!  Stay tuned as we update you every week and keep the option open to be a Founding Member

Cheers!
