In a 60 year-old building with a brand new brewhouse in downtown Loveland we’ve been quietly, diligently, earnestly working to craft beer that makes us proud in a space that fosters authentic connection.  We’ve intentionally not made a big fuss about our endeavor – that’s just not our way.

But we do get a lot of questions over at Narrow Path.  Some we have answers for – Will you guys have a nice outdoor space in the summer?  Check.  When is the IPA coming?  Check.  What are you going to do about the lighting?  Working on it…

One big question is about our Grand Opening.  You see, we’ve been in what we call soft opening purgatory for a few months.  Opening for a few days a week has been all we can handle right now.  People find out that we’re open, then they stop in and really like it, then they bring their friends and neighbors, then they drink most of our beer.  All the work we’ve been doing to get open ends up getting short-circuited as we find ourselves right back where we started.  The work is exhausting, but the depth of community we’re experiencing is amazing.

We’ve decided that waiting until we’re ready for our Grand Opening is a fool’s errand because it’s just never going to happen.  So either we never do a Grand Opening or we do one regardless of whether or not we’re ready.  We’ve doubled and tripled our production to get the cooler and the tanks full.  We’re getting closer. 

So since we’re going to be at the brewery all day on Saint Patrick’s Day, we may as well do our Grand Opening then.  We’re not totally ready, but we’re so excited to meet you!  We may even get our sign (or part of it) on the front of the building – no promises though.  We’ll have a good amount of beer.  But don’t ask about the lights, okay? 

We’re also going to be rolling out a very important part of who we are on Friday.  We couldn’t be more excited to finally unveil what we believe makes us who we are!  So if you don’t already have plans to support your favorite brewery that day come out and check us out.  Ask for Chad or Greg – we really do want to meet you, to shake your hand, to see your face.
