Got a crystal ball? This has been a crazy ride. Two licenses hang on the wall (the one to brew and the one to sell and have a retail store), and a third is on its way (the one to allow us to sell a 12 oz glass to enhance tourist or educational experiences). The retail space is done. Everything has been ordered or is here.
So why aren't we brewing? We figured bureaucracy would be our biggest delay. It was, to the tune of about six months in total (hooray!), but it's contractor time that's now keeping us grounded. A little more plumbing, a little more electrical, a little more steam, and then we get to call in the four different inspectors and hope for the best.
So when does that mean? We don't know - all we can say is "soon." Cornwall hasn't had a working brewery for ninety-five years. With that perspective, a few more weeks, while psychologically huge, doesn't seem like much in the grand scheme of things. We're hoping for Summer in September ;)
