Join with us on our adventure as we build East Alstead's first brewery and what is quite possibly the only off-grid commercial brewery in the United States. We feel that what we brew and how we brew it are equally important. If you would like to help out with this project, contact me at:

Italian Bottle Filler, etc...

In the last month and a half we have been unable to access our internet for a total of two and a half weeks. In the modern world, that is a lifetime.  Today, the 'net came back up after a week off and let us hope it keeps going for a while.With no internet one has a hard time researching purchases and filling out federal and state forms.  These last two are critical for us at this point. Not having internet access made me realize two things: How important it is to modern American life and how much time it wastes.

So why is it that the Italians are so good at cars, bikes, and bottlers?
Now to the good news.  We have finally received our bottler!  It is a stainless steel Italian beauty that is completely mechanical.  It takes a bit of charm to get it going, but once it is up and running it is a dream and will be a big contributor to the function of our brewery.  

In other news, today I picked up the parts for the chimney.  We had contracted this job but both contractors were unable to complete the job. So now it is a do-it-yourself proposition.  My brother-in-law, Eric Gauvin, has agreed to come up and help out.  Any others who are available to help out are welcome. This Saturday we may have a new chimney to show off!  

Dear Reader, I shall keep you posted...
