Walt....looks great. Is that a Corona in your hand? Take two Belgians and call me in the morning. :>)

I got's to check out your website...

Do Ron and Jeff own the whole thing, or is this part your baby? Congratulations.

Nice going, Walt!

Hey Walt, did you get those 55 gallon vessels from a place in Mass? (they've got 'em on eBay)

Ron n Jeff dont own any of it..
They own enough already.. snicker :)

Breeeeew!

Congrats, Walt! Since I'm only about 40 miles up the road in Castle Rock I'll make it a point to get to the Springs and see the store. You gonna be there pretty much full time, or just once in a while? I'll introduce myself if you're there.

Holy Cow!!! I've long suspected this, but I must live on the outer limits of the brewing world. The only two brewing shops I have been in in Maine have been the equivalent of basement closets. That looks great.

Congrats Walt! Looks like the walk-in made the trip as well - still lots of good hops in there I hope!

Walt,
Your store has got to be the Super Walmart (NAYY) of Home Brew store! My LHBS store is back in a small garage bay of a warehouse. Could be more that 300 square feet if that.

I am ready to retire and go to work for Walt as his greeter. I would offer each customer who walks in the store a cheerful greeting, a shopping cart, and dixie cup of RyePA, samichlaus clone, or rochie 10. I could also hand out beer-flavored candy to the rug rats.

Good luck Walt!

I have a neighbor who moved to the springs last year. I almost got him to a brew session once..
I will Tell him about your new store. What is the address? Maybe you can cut him a deal on his starter kit if he says ELk sent him?.

Lets see some more pictures of the grain bins and stuff. Also that is alot of realestate compared to the cramped quarters we have here.

Congratulations Walt. When are you gonna give us the info on the online store? Was that Corona being drunk??? For shame Walt, for shame.

Walt,

I'm interested in what kind of State and Federal hoops you had to jump thru for the BOP/WOP portion of the business.

Thanks all!
The old location was about 1500 sq feet.. the new one is about 4000 :)
Im just about always there.. open from 10-7 then on Sat 10-6..... closed Sun.. football day ya know :)
Yup, there are still a BIG selection of hops in that walk in.. mostly Whole Hops :)
Send him over Elk, Ill take care of em!
The online store is at www.myhomebrew.com
You can order online there, but its n old store front thats in need of a face lift, which, as soon as the phone co gets its act together and runs the dsl line, will be upgraded :)
The customer pitches the yeast...
We dont sell beer, just sell the "groceries"...

The Lama will be moved in today, and its first brew will be this Sat, if all goes according to plan :)

Opps... smiley limit exceeded..heh
BrewON!
Walt
