Clean Slate!

Painted ceilings, painted walls, polished floors… add some tanks and a wood-fired oven, and we’re practically good to go! This week, we finished the floors and now we can start adding equipment. Kitchen gear and the big walk-in cooler that will store our tanks of finished beer are on schedule to arrive next week. Delivery of brewing equipment and oven is still a few weeks out. Picking’s crew is kicking butt with the construction!

From the office, our brewer’s notice approval from the federal TTB is confirmed. We see online that the Colorado Department of Revenue also lists Mountain Tap Brewery as having a Recently Approved Colorado Liquor License. All that paperwork will soon be a distant memory.

The Steamboat ski mountain closes this weekend (April 10). It was a great winter, with snow measured in feet more often than inches. The only thing missing was fresh Mountain Tap beer. We’re working on that and will have it fixed by next ski season.

Before and after…
