It's been another slow week around here at Bone Up Headquarters, but that's largely to be expected - we're waiting on renovations and permits, and neither of those is exactly known for being a super speedy process. But never you worry, I've brought along my bag o' exclamation points to try and squeeze every last damn drop of excitement out of this here blog post! So let's get on with it!
For the most part we've been busying ourselves with stockpiling all the equipment and supplies we need, but that ain't hardly news since nobody could possibly care about tubing that much (except our head brewer, and please, just... don't get him started again. We just got him to stop). But! We've also been playing around with some ideas for stuff to put in the taproom! Most recently, we've been talking about painting the tables with chalkboard paint so y'all can doodle while you drink. In order to make sure it would be worthwhile, we painted up some tables and Jimbo got to making us some arguably-beer-themed doodles! It turns out that chalkboard tables are surprisingly fun to have around, so we'll call that idea a keeper.
As an added bonus, our roommates have been rather diligent about adding drawings of genitalia to said doodles
Speaking of the taproom, we finally got our fancypants three-bay sink for behind the bar! We didn't feel like that was photoworthy though, because you can probably picture it pretty easily (ever seen a sink? It looks like that).
We also got a shitload of hops that we'll use to make you tasty beer, but it turns out that a hundred pounds of hops (about two months' worth) isn't really as impressive looking as it would sound (it looks like a couple largish boxes inside of our freezer). So, uh, yeah. That's some medium-exciting news right there. But never you worry! Things are in motion, and we're sure to have some tales of interest for y'all soon enough!
Jared and Jimbo will tell you some things, sometimes.
