EXCELSIOR BREWING EXPANSION UPDATE:
A little over a month ago, we announced we were expanding. You know the basics…tripling square footage, more than quadrupling capacity, beginning to send out 12 oz. bottles.
Now that 2014 is underway, we’re a little more clear about the timeline and wanted to answer some frequently asked questions for your convenience:
- Will this affect the taproom, aka “The Garage”? – Yes and no. Our taproom is moving up to the 3rd street side of our building, but will remain very low key and industrial. We love the atmosphere ourselves and wouldn’t want to get all way-too-fancy-pinky-in-the-air moving forward. You’ll still drink among fermenters and play giant Jenga with a pint in hand.
- When will bottles be out? – We’re anticipating our filler arriving mid-April and pumping out bottles by early May. This means you’ll see Big Island Blond, XLCR Pale and Bitteschlappe Brown six-packs in your local liquor stores faster than you can say “reinheitsgebot”
- How will you be celebrating such a big occasion? – You know we love an excuse to hold a party. Oktoberfest, Shag-a-go-go, Chriskindsmarkt, Arctic Fever…we just love ’em. Well, to answer that we’d like to ask everyone to block off April 12th for our Wall Party. This will be the official removal of the last wall separating our new space from our current space. Most importantly, what would a Wall Party be without a Pink Floyd cover band? It would be a pointless Wall Party, that’s what. So we’ve booked out an awesome Pink Floyd cover band, began rounding up our sledgehammers and axes, and will be celebrating the merging of our spaces with all who wish to attend.
It’s about to get real. REAL real. Like, so Real it puts the “real” in “Superreal” (PS it’s a word. I googled it.)
Thank you to those who have helped us get here, those who are helping us move forward, and those that will join us along the way. It’s going to be awesome, cheers!
