What do you have your eyes on or what do you have coming up.

  • John – Waiting to hear back on whether our preferred location is legal for a brewery
  • Chris – St Patricks Day, get your application in for the Pikes Peak Brewery Craft Beer Society
  • Solomon – We only had to watch one kid today, and forgot how easy it was… So Kara and I went on an epic beer and wine adventure with our boy, Bennett.
