Ground Zero for Fresh Beer
Our base of operations where we brew, package, and serve in our tap room. We also have a kitchen and outdoor beer garden.
We’re a 1.5 bbl brewery: that’s one and a half barrels, or about 47 US gallons, per batch. We brew on a three burner Psychobrew system using Stout kettles. No, we wouldn’t recommend that anyone else build a brewery this size, ever.
Generally, we do a quadruple batch every brewday. We have six 1.5 bbl stainless and four 7 bbl stainless steel fermenters. This is the limiting factor for our capacity: we could brew night and day, but you have to have somewhere to put the beer. We also have two 3 bbl brite tanks and one 7bbl brite tank, further increasing our capacity: after a batch is done fermenting we can put it in one of our brite tanks for clarification and carbonation while we brew another batch.
(Our clarification methods start and end with crash cooling the beer to drop the yeast out of suspension. We do not filter or use clarifying agents on our beer, which leaves in more nutrients and keeps it vegetarian.)
