Great news, everyone–we have now passed all of our inspections and received our certificate of occupancy, which means we can now start fermenting beer, cider, perry, mead, wine, and other beverages on-site! It also means that we can now open our tasting room to guests, which we’re doing on a very limited basis, starting with a friends and family/industry opening today from noon to 8pm, followed by a more public soft opening tomorrow from noon to 8pm.
We won’t be selling any of our own products, of course, seeing that we don’t yet have any that are ready to sell, but we will be offering a small, hand-picked selection of some of our favorite draft beers and ciders, wines by the glass, and bottles, available on-site and to-go, from small, independent, artisan producers around the world.
Starting next weekend, we’ll be open Friday 4-8pm, Saturday 12-8pm, and Sunday, 12-8pm, with a somewhat expanded selection of beer, cider, and wine, as well as the addition of non-alcoholic beverages and pre-packaged snacks. Additional days and hours will be added as soon as we finish up the last bit of site work that we need to do.
Please note that our tasting room is licensed as a Beer & Wine Tavern, with an Off-Premise endorsement, which means, unfortunately, that no one under 21 is allowed inside. This restriction does not apply to our facility as a whole, which we will open up for scheduled, family-friendly tours once we’re fully operational and all the dust has settled, literally.
