Moriches Field Brewing Company – June Update

What an amazing amount of progress, especially in the last week. Our equipment is back in place after re-doing the floor, our first order of kegs arrived, the front sign is finally done and we have seating in the main room. I feel like so much has transpired in the last 10 days. The next few weeks are cleaning and testing as well as decorating. I have one last Moriches Field Brewing Company sign to hang over the taps and my unofficial career as a sign-maker will officially be over. We’ll look to start the hiring process the first week of July.

Sweat Equity

With all of the various delays caused by Covid 19 pandemic, we took the opportunity to “upgrade” the brew floor with an epoxy finish. It was oddly easy to do from a technical point of view, although quite an effort over the weekend. It’s results like this that you put your own sweat equity into that mean the most when you look back. The picture is coat number 1. As always I couldn’t have done this without my wife who did 50% of the work but made the weekend 100% better.

May Update

We are continuing to make slow but steady progress towards opening later this summer. Various final inspections are taking place which are going well. It’s amazing how many regulators you have when opening a brewery and they all need paperwork. As you might imagine the pace is slower given all of the restrictions for the Covid-19 pandemic, but it’s happening. On a more fun note, our chairs for the tasting bar are here. They look great, so it’s sad that we won’t be able to use most of them for a while. We are actually looking at some alternative configurations to manage social distancing protocols. Nothing like changing business plans on the fly!

A positive sign!

After waiting and waiting for the weather to cooperate, we finally finished the corner sign. While we are still working to open some time this summer, it feels “official” now. There was a huge smile on my face when I drove up this morning.

Finding Some Joy….

First and foremost, we wish everyone well during this troubling time. A few weeks ago we were thinking about the opening date for the brewery. It’s amazing how things have changed so quickly and now the focus is on ensuring friends and family are safe and have what they need to get through the Covid-19 crisis. On a personal level my family is fine and for that I am very grateful. The last few weeks, have felt more like months. We are still progressing with the brewery although construction is severely curtailed at the moment. I won’t predict when it will be done, but I know we will eventually get there.

As February comes to a close, we continue to make progress on the brewery.

It’s satisfying to see things move from concept through to completion. The front of our building is starting to look like we envisioned. The guys really took this very quickly from approval by the town on our revisions to the initial design to actual construction.

Finishing touches

A lot has happened since the last update. The fire alarm is in, electric & plumbing fixtures are starting to get in place and we found a bargain for new windows to let some light into the hallway. Most of the painting is done and now we are focusing on the tasting room.

Another milestone as we inch closer….

What a relief! We had the new elevation for the front of the building approved earlier this week by the town. The construction is already underway to finish the front of the building. There is always a bit of nail biting every time you go in front of the planning board, but we did our homework and put in the time with the local historical committee and other key players prior to the meeting. We were so happy to get the thumbs up! Continue reading

 

The build out update: So much going on…..

After a brief break for the holidays, work is moving along in the brewery to get it up and running in 2020.

An Early Christmas for the Brewery

We were very excited to receive our new fermenters for the brewery. Delivered on the coldest day of the year, it was a great way to end the rush as we approach Christmas.
