Time Flies When You Are Havin Fun

Well, we find ourselves in the middle of fall here in Denver. The leaves are changing colors and falling off their branches in preparation of the coming winter. It is so beautiful! The afternoons are warm with highs in the 60s and 70s and then it is cooling off considerably in the evening. In fact, we have begun to hear the occasional roar of our furnace, a sound not heard for months! The body begs for a little additional sleep, and the stomach is constantly asking to be fed, a sure sign of the times! We have transitioned to acorn, butternut, and spaghetti squashes at the restaurant, and the first beautiful apples of the season have shown up recently.
 Around the brewery, we have been continuing the struggle for permits with the City of Denver, making progress at what seems to be a snail's pace. We recently received more beautiful stainless tanks that will serve as our hot and cold liquor tanks. It is always a fun time when more shiny pieces of equipment are delivered! We will be getting our 15-barrel fermenter back from Upslope Brewing Co in the next week or so, as they have gotten their Pale Ale back on the shelves, and have received two additional fermenters - requiring ours to get out of their way. Nice job guys! Keep up the good work!
Kickstarter has been going strong. We definitely have a long way to go to reach our goal, but the strong showing of support from family and friends has been amazing! We have been filming with Free Mind Productions on their follow up to Beer Culture. This time, they are planning to film at breweries around the country and, eventually, get this movie on the big screen. It has been fun and they are great guys! Motivated, inspired, and charging ahead at their goals. A story that we can relate to and get behind!
Happy Fall! - Black Shirt Brewing Co
