In my last blog post I shared my frustration with one of our local news stations and the one-sided report they did on the recent changes to the Kansas liquor laws, changes that would allow grocery and convenient stores to stock “full-strength” beer while also allowing liquor stores to sell items other than alcohol.
Again, it’s been a while since I’ve had time to sit down and update our blog. A lot has happened since November. The last time I posted, we had been open a mere three weeks. Sadly, we are still dealing with some lingering issues from that post that I wish had passed—for example our custom made, bi-fold door is still not complete. Despite some amazing effort from Studium design/build on the custom door, we are opting for a more traditional overhead model. Should be installed in June.
We have expanded from six to ten of our beers on-tap in the tasting room, plus some house made cocktails. Though we didn’t get our beers out to liquor stores by 1 November, due to some tragic yeast problems, we ARE distributing. Our beers are available in over 90 liquor stores and 40 bars and restaurants. Speaking of liquor stores, I wanted to address a piece KSN did on us.
