Mezzanine 1-15-16

While we are waiting for the concrete to cure, the mezzanine is being put up above the tap room. For those who don’t know what a mezzanine is, its basically a large platform. The beams that support it are massive. One broke a furniture dolly in half when they were...

Concrete Poured In Today 1-11-16

Concrete was poured today! What an operation it was. At one point Craig and I counted 19 people working! The concrete guys filled from the back of the warehouse to the front. They reached a hose above the rebar a hundred feet to the back of the warehouse and pumped,...

Cool Fit 1-5-15

There is a lot more that goes into installing the trench drains than I expected. I thought it was merely a matter of plopping them into the rebar and tieing them into the plumming. In actuality they need to be perfectly placed and slanted at just the right angle to...

The Birth of a Brewer 12-25-14

Those of you who read last week’s post will recall that this week’s blog entry is being contributed by our brewmaster Craig Cauwels. I thought it would be nice for you all to get to know a little more about the origins of Morgan Territory Brewing from his perspective...

Catching Up On Stuff at Home 12-3-15

Today I still have a fever, but I am on the mend. Craig has forbid that I show up today after I told him I thought I would be able to help out later in the day. He doesn’t want what I had, and I don’t blame him. Plus, there are a hundred of things that I can do from...

Being Sick Sucks! 12-2-15

Well, I was literally in bed for 24 hours since yesterday. My stomach no longer hurts, but I have a high fever and a major headache, and still don’t want to get out of bed. I felt bad that I couldn’t be at the warehouse to help out with the cooler. Later on in the day...

Cold Room Progressing Nicely 12-1-15

Cold room work continued today. The panels were flying up today. As our installers/helpers put up ceiling panels, Craig and I took the time to organize and stage the remaining panels. It’s really hard work. Our efficiency is improving more and more. We have now...
