Piping Hot Piping

Work is proceeding apace at the Old Brewery. Two weeks ago our brewing plant was delivered. Last week it was hoist into place on its supporting gantry. This week the stainless steel welders are connecting it all together, and the plan is that by Friday if you put water in the tank at the top, you won't get water on the floor at the bottom.

Slowly but surely the brewery space is starting to take shape, but the pressure is still on the retail team. The invites for the big opening have been sent out and the RSVPs are coming back, and there is still a lot of work to be done. The hare, in other words, is running.

It's not just a question of what you can see either. There is a lot of pieces of kit that are out of sight. Key amongst these are the cellar tanks which will dispense our draught beers up to the bar. These operate on a compressed air system allowing beer to be dispensed without the use of extraneous CO2.
