We fully expected that we wouldn't have any brewery news for you this week because all of our employees have been busy getting married.
That's right, drive-thru weddins. And that ain't even the classiest part.
OK, that's technically incorrect, since "employee" implies that we're getting paid. And we also happen to be lucky enough to know some people who have provided incredible amounts of help and support without any expectation of payment (and who we cannot possibly thank enough), but we're loosely classifying them as "volunteers" (though you can feel free to substitute the word "family" or "suckers" as you see fit).

But I digress. Jimbo and Jared are married now! And that's not even the extent of the huge excitement around these parts: our TTB Application got approved! We're federally recognized as being Legitimate Brewers!
Now, we're still a ways away from being able to make delicious beers for you, but this is a Huge Deal. TTB approval is easily the third biggest milestone on the road to becoming a Real Brewer (the first two are raising money and finding a suitable space to rent, and we've done those), so now the only big things standing in our way are state-level permits and some renovations! Building renovations are usually pretty quick, right?
Shout out to Eddie Powers, the best Elvis impersonator/wedding MC we could have hoped for.
Jared and Jimbo will tell you some things, sometimes.
