We’d like to take a moment to shine the spotlight on the unsung hero in any brewery: the sink.
Think about it. The mashtun gets tons of attention (excuse the pun). The brewhouse is always in the spotlight. Even kegs are constant topics of conversation.
That’s all for good reason, we admit. But consider this: without a sink in which to wash the glasses… well, you’d have to guzzle straight from a growler or a tap. And that would be so unhygienic. (And probably against myriad regulations.)
So, without further ado, we present The Tale of Valiant’s Sink.
We got good use out of the sink as soon as it was delivered–but let’s be honest: the purpose of a sink is not to support tubes and pipes and other supplies! So we went ahead and connected it to all the necessary plumbing.
But we didn’t stop there.
And, just like every other part of opening a brewery, we got the job done–one step at a time.
So, did we ever tell you we had to build two ginormous doors inside the two ginormous doors that lead into the brewery? This is that story.
It’s a story of regulations we didn’t expect, requiring double doors. A story of woodworking, drywalling, painting, and hinges. A story of why we’re even more excited about being able to say (at our Grand Opening 2/9): “Doors are OPEN!”
…And they all drank happily ever after.
(It’s a good story, right??)
We’ve been busy brewing–now it’s time to start kegging! (How else can we serve all those thirsty people coming to our Grand Opening on Feb. 9?)
