|Jack McDonald, l, and Chris Hardin tidy up their new sign.|
As I previously posted elsewhere, I stopped by Upstate Craft Beer Co., (@UpstateBeerCo) located in the old Clausen Bakery building to see how the construction was progressing. Jack and Chris gave me a quick tour (dodging HVAC supplies all the while) and reiterated their goal of opening before year's end. Some photos of the visit:
Basically the nano-brewery will have three main areas: seating where beer lovers can sip and enjoy, a small, but tidy kitchen area that will offer light snacks and lunch, and the brewing area which will be kept busy if Chris, Brewmaster, (who recently became a Certified Cicerone) has his way.
This facility will be a very interesting addition to the craft beer community here and I'm looking forward to the opening. Also anticipating some more Interstellar Pale Ale, a nicely hopped version of the style tha's not overly bitter.
