After 5 years, we had to move our little brewery from our original location on Orcutt Road.




The good news is we finally moved into our amazing new spot (just around the corner from our beloved Orcutt home) that will allow us to have of course beer as well as food, wine, cider, an outdoor patio, and more than enough indoor space to host our live music and community events.

We opened our new spot late in the summer of 2020. We opened quietly, just food at first, then alcohol. We started with three people. We added a fourth. The second shut down happened, and then there was just two of us, opening and closing.

We imagined opening this location with the biggest party. It’s been 10 months and each month has been different. We spend our days off brainstorming, rearranging rooms, ordering new equipment, building more seats and tables…and now a stage. It’s been 10
months since we opened, and this month we finally get to have live music and that party we imagined.

We’ve been thinking about this moment since we first walked into this new location. We’ve spent hours with our musician friends, discussing music equipment, and placement of the stage, and the size of the stage, and how sound will move through the space.

It wasn’t until this Monday, as we hung the speakers and contemplated the best angles, that this all felt real. We will continue building and creating for many months to come, but this stage is a few tweaks away from being ready for a band. AND THIS SATURDAY with @samchase and @forthefolks will mark our first concert at Bang the Drum on Laurel Lane.
