And to start things off, we've got something that can at best be loosely defined as "good stuff" and that's another Expansion Update. This time around there's been some real, actual, tangible progress and it's something that wasn't done 60% of the way and then abandoned, so this is actually a bit of a first when dealing with buildout in this building. Anyway, the Big Exciting News is that our (soon to be) bathrooms have tile now! Woo! Definitely never thought I'd get this worked up about grout, but here we are. Anyway the main step that's left on those ol' bathrooms is putting in the fixtures, but the building's plumber won't do it until the walls are painted* so we're gettin' on that as quick as we can and hopefully soon enough we'll have (60% of) some damn fixtures in there!
And if you need even more tasty beer, we've got even more tasty beer! We've got a new beer comin' out and it's part of yet another cool collab! This time around it's another collab with our friends from Vox & Hops (who you might remember as the force behind the 2021 collab that resulted in The Great Equalizer, which was our first collab with Fuming Mouth, who is the band we collabed with for Master of Extremity, which came out two weeks ago. Got all that?) and they're doin' a worldwide collab of "mosh pit themed" beers and ours is a misfit IPA (which seemed fitting for the theme) and we're callin' it Collateral Moshing and it's available in cans on Friday and also it's the beer release for this month's Band Hangouts (more on that in a bit) and you should drink some!
** We meant to send the maple cask to NERAX and tap one with cherry-liqueur-soaked oak chips, but the person filling the casks mixed them up and NERAX uses a different type of cask than we do (they use the real ones, we use a much jankier setup that's somehow also better?) and that means we couldn't swap them. So if you want to try the cask that we *meant* to tap in the taproom this week, go to NERAX! Hell, go to NERAX anyway! It's a lot of fun!
*** We really should use that projector more often.
**** I actually have no idea what goes into playing this game. I know there are instruments, but my knowledge starts and ends there despite having been around people actively playing it.
