How much space are you adding?
We've got roughly twice as much as we used to - we took over the unit next to ours, and it's about the same dimensions as what we've got now. So... we're upgrading from Tiny to Still Pretty Durn Small.
What specifically are you expanding?
Everything! We wanna give y'all a little more breathing room out there in the taproom, but we're equally (if not more) pinched for space behind-the-scenes (production space, cold storage, our "lab" that's just a table in the corner right now, the Nap Nook, etc.) so we're playin' it fair and doublin' up on ever'thang! More beer! More games! More seats! More tanks! Storage in any amount whatsoever!
Really? Why not?
Lots of reasons, really, but the main takeaway is that we've got (hopefully) better ideas up our collective sleeve. We'll give you the down-low when things are a bit more set in stone, but rest assured that we've been schemin' some schemes.
Is the new space usable now?
Ha! No. Not even a little bit. So far the only tangible effect is that things are more confusing for people who have never been here before. We're considering airplane-style lighted pathways to the taproom and/or the bathroom.
Okay... any idea when it'll be good to go?
Nope! It would be really nice to have any sort of an answer here, but we'll be tied up with permits and building codes and all sorts of nonsense (not to mention the actual buildout that we need to do), so it's kind of anyone's guess. But if all goes well (it won't) we're hopin' to have at least part of that area up and runnin' before we get too deep into Patio Season.
Then on Friday we got Mr. Tamole back in the house with more tasty treats for you to eat! They're so good, you guys.
