Brewing cherry, consider yourself broken.

Yesterday was our first brew day, people! We offered a play-by-play account on Twitter and Facebook all evening, so some of you were sorta there. Hilarious mishaps were also in attendance, see the photo to the right for how not to open a 2008 lb super-sack of grain.

We have more photos to share, but they are presently in the queue for a major update to our website, Facebook, etc. We'll get to the web updates as soon as the tanks are full of beer. Believe us, the beer (!) and the website will be worth the wait.

Our good pal Rob was at the brewery for a while yesterday, helping out and shooting photos and video. He loaded the videos to YouTube. Short video 1. Short video 2. Short video 3. Enjoy!

Hey Doug- You spent all that time in Munich learning how to brew and they didn't teach you how to open a grain bag? ;-) Congrats, guys!

I cannot find your facebook group anywhere. What is the name I should be searching for?

Congrats! You're on Being Totally Sweet In Chicago again. You can read all about it, but I love how you used Twitter during your brew day.

I just found out about your beer through random twitter connections and then saw your brewery is walking distance from my apartment. I'll have to head up to hop leaf and try some out!
