We are Turning One... AND Expanding!
A lot has happened in the last year, and we couldn't have done it without all of your support! The real birth of Tin Whiskers was over 5 years ago when Jeff, Jake and George lite their proverbial fire for the science behind making some of the best craft beer, and turned their dreams in to reality.
Never would we have imagined we would be here today, just one year after our grand opening, putting all the numbers together and realizing we have hit our max capacity! We went from a mere 12 tap accounts upon opening, to over 50 tap accounts currently and 65 liquor stores accounts carrying our 22oz. bombers since we started bottling last November, and that number is quickly growing.
We couldn't be more excited to announce our soon approaching expansion UP towards the ceiling, to further utilize the large industrial space we have quickly grown in to. Mid July, we will be pulling out a whole set of our front bay windows to make way for the removal of three of our 15bbl fermenter tanks to be replaced with three 30bbl fermenters which is going to almost double our capacity. We will also be expanding our pilot brewing system with slightly larger tanks, to bring you more unique and exotic one-off brews from our Head Brewer Derek. Once the new equipment is in, we will be replacing the removed windows with a large glass garage door to create more of an open and airy feel to the brewery so we can all have a beer and enjoy those precious warm summer days there are all too few of.
We are giddy with anticipation and excitement for what the next year will bring, but first we want to celebrate with you! We have brewed up something special for our Anniversary; an 8.6% dangerously smooth Watts Wheat Wine, we will be releasing around the area and ending in our Taproom this coming Saturday, June 6 at 2pm. Below is a list of specific establishments that will have our Anniversary Beer on tap until supplies last, along with our Taproom as well as a list of Anniversary Day happenings here at Tin Whiskers. Please join us at this exciting time while we celebrate the fruits of ours, our families, our volunteers and of course our supporters labors!
