Piney River Brewing Company

Progress as promised

In Start up on January 17, 2011 at 9:15 pm

Saturday proved to be a typically non-typical Ozark Saturday in January weather-wise.  We worked up a sweat cleaning up the piles of boards on the West end of the BARn.  There are no photos documenting the day’s work, but again, I will say that the hardest days of brewing will never be as laborious as the work we did on Saturday.

Brian picked through 8, 10, 12 foot old oak boards that once covered the outside of the barn.  He pulled nails, and then we moved the good old boards into the BARn, to dry out upstairs where they will be re-used.  I picked up hundreds of small pieces of scrap board and many large pieces filling the back of our Ranger time and time again.  I burned some boards and put others in piles for future bonfires.  Andy entertained a woolly worm, or maybe vice versa, and even picked up a couple of wheelbarrow loads of small board pieces.  Muscles were quivering by the day’s end.

We have been plugging away on interior walls, and we are just about to the point where we can thoroughly clean the wet side of the brewery and begin to set up our equipment as well as planning for future equipment.  So here’s where we are…door/wall into the wet side of the brewery.

Interior and exterior of mechanical room wall on the wet side of the brewery.

After dinner and before putting Andy to bed tonight…we covered the wall between the mechanical room and the wet side!

And, yes, in case you were wondering, that is the official brewery bicycle.  I think the head brewer rides it.
