Soft Opening Thank you Party: Sunday, July 24 at 2PM.

The official selling of our beer opening is pushed back to August, but we want to say thank you to our supporters and welcome new folks as well with a party.

We will be serving Ultimate 57 (double IPA), Positive Waves (IPA), Surfside 6 (pale ale) and Jalapeno Jack (cream ale).

We are so psyched and grateful to Seat Of Our Pants (acoustic Americana/Folk/Blues/Bluegrass/Country/Rock) for coming out and playing for this party!  (See http://www.seatofourpants.org/SeatOfOurPants/Home.html)

Save the date! Cheers!

Wedding Cheers today: A toast to our friends with Jalapeno Jack and Quadzilla.

Taste testing went well yesterday evening with these batches.

The big dig delay: Shooting for an early August opening.

We thought a simple gray water system would meet the requirements, but not so. The new septic system build is a minor setback as we now work toward an early August opening.

We will be pouring at Eli Cannon’s 7th Annual Charity Beer Fest and the Powder Ridge Beer Fest. Thank you so much for your support and encouragement. Cheers!

Fat Orange Cat Brew Company Merchandise.

We are waiting on a couple of key physical components before we can open, but having  some Fat Orange Cat stuff around is encouraging. We are still shooting for a mid-July opening. Cheers!

Look For The Paw.

Many thanks to incredibly talented designer/woodworker and passionate beer lover Thom Sawyer (owner of Chatham Housewrights chathamhousewrights@comcast.net) for this prototype handle being tested in our home taproom.

“I saw the paw at…”  Stayed tuned!

Mike & Alex
Mike talks jalapenos with our friend Alex DeFrancesco of DeFrancesco Farm and Four Brothers Till (he brews amazing beer – watch for this coming very soon).

We can’t thank Alex enough for our flowers-for-beer barter friendship as well.
