It’s almost that time of year again, Pittsburgh Craft Beer Week is just around the corner. A lot of great events will be happening again this year, and if you check out our calendar you can see where we’re planning to pour our beers at. We’ve tried to take on an event most nights of the week so we hope everyone can make at least one to try a few samples of our beer. We’ll be pouring a wide range of beers, Tokoloshe, Machete, Hop Marsh, Remus & Romulus, Colossus, Spelunking and a handful of others as well! They all won’t make the trip to every location so as we get closer to PCBW, we’ll update our event postings and add the beers onto them in case you’re looking for one in particular.
The weather still hasn’t done us any favors and while the roof materials have made it onto the roof, the roof still isn’t on. We just need a few nice days in a row so cross your fingers for us. The layout is finalized, barring any code issues that could arise, kitchen equipment layout is being finalized as is the general menu, and we’re working on the interior design aspects of the pub. Several people have asked us why our brewery is taking so long when others are popping up and seeming to move through the process faster. We can honestly say we’re doing everything we can to move as quickly as possible. Our project is much larger than most, involving bigger systems than most of the new breweries you’re seeing pop up and has involved the demolition of multiple buildings and significant repairs/renovations as we are taking our building back to square one so we can truly deliver on what we want to offer. Unfortunately just about anything that could happen to extend our timeline has, ranging from weather issues, to contractor issues, investor issues, etc. We can admit that we were a bit anxious and naive in our initial planning and have been brought down to reality through this process. Things don’t happen when you want them to, but when they fit into the schedule of those you are working with and we failed to take that into consideration when planning our timeline. We’re getting there though and we can promise you that we will reward you for your patience by bringing an awesome new hangout to downtown Butler. We’re going to make the best beer and food we possibly we can, but it’s more than that. It’s about the experience and we’re going to deliver the full package. We know pouring you samples isn’t the same thing as giving you the full brewpub experience, but we want to hold you over as best we can as we appreciate all the support and excitement!
On a final note, in the future you’ll see some more label artwork, a new shop and eventually a brand new website that truly represents what our Adventurous Ales are all about! Cheers!
