Beer and Yoga!

Progress has been steady at Hapa’s Brewing Company and we are nearing the long awaiting opening (exact date is TBD).  In preparation for the Big Day, we thought it would be a good idea to center ourselves with some yoga.  We’ve teamed up with Downward Drinking Dog to host a beer and yoga event at the brewery on January 21st.  Tickets and information can be found HERE.

P.S. It can get a little bit chilly in the brewery so please dress accordingly.

ADA Bar Remixed

We finished the bar weeks ago but discovered a problem:  The ADA section of the bar is required to have an 18″ overhang.  We built the section with the same 7″ overhang as the rest of the bar.

After discussing several options to remedy this issue we decided to tear the section apart, cut out the area needed for an 18″ overhang, and put it all back together.

Beer Has Been Brewed

Last week was a huge week for Hapa’s Brewing!  One that we will remember forever as the week we brewed our first beer.  There were a lot of moving parts and work to be done but everything came together and we brewed a blonde ale on Wednesday and an IPA on Thursday.  Fermentation has been strong which means we’ll have beer soon!

Stay tuned for more updates!  The Grand Opening is right around the corner!

We Have a Brewery!

Remember in the last post when I said we had “a HUGE week” coming up?  That was no joke!  Our brewing equipment arrived!  We hired a rigging company to unload everything and rough place it on the tank pad.  The team from Criveller Group spent the next two days placing, leveling, and hooking everything up.  We ran a water test and all went well.

Next steps: finish up electrical, water and steam piping, and our glycol system.  Then brew some beer!!!

Concrete Bar Top Gets Poured

After all the measuring, cutting, and drilling the Hapa’s Brewing Company bar was ready for its crown jewel: the concrete bar top.  The team got to work early Saturday morning and by nightfall the bar was one giant step closer to completion.

Stay tuned for more updates.  This is going to be a HUGE week for Hapa’s Brewing Company.
