It’s official, we have signed a lease! We couldn’t be happier to have found a home and we are more than excited to continue on to the next step. Although we are still on track to be sharing our delicious brew with you by next spring, our plans have changed a little over the past few months.
Our number one priority has always been to make delicious, local, craft beer of the highest quality to share with our friends, family and community. We have found a passion in this craft and truly enjoy sharing it with those around us. Although it has always been about the beer, the next logical step was to pair our malt and hop creations with local, quality food and provide our customers with an even more comprehensive experience. While this is still our end goal, we have decided to hold back on adding the food for a while. We have rented a commercial spot in a business park where we are going to opening a brewery tap house. We will still be serving 5-7 taps of Swing Tree beer and we will still be offering local live music and other entertainment. This is going to give us a chance to focus on getting our brewing operations running strong and get our beer out into the community. As soon as we get settled and the beer gets flowing, we will slowly start working on incorporating food. Until then, we will welcome people to bring in their own food (we are working on a packed-lunch happy hour discount) and we will work with the local restaurants that deliver to make sure no one goes hungry while enjoying our tasty libations.
We still have awhile before we get to start brewing on location (now that we have a physical address we can start the licensing application) and we have a lot of remodeling to do before it looks like a tap house, but feel free to stop by and check us out any time. We will be in and out of the location daily, as we will be using it as our office until we can start brewing there. We would love to see a friendly face and get your input, and who knows, we might even have a beer or two lying around.
Thanks again to all of those who have supported us along our journey and all of those who will soon be sharing in the fruits of our labors. We are simply ecstatic to be moving forward and getting that much closer to opening the tap house and sharing our craft beer creations with you!
Cheers! – The Swing Tree Team
