I know, it’s been way too long since my last post. I was away for most of January and February and was very busy with my other job. If this is the first time you visit our Square Timber Brewing Company blog, Welcome! As some of you may know, I am full-time touring musician with the April Verch Band and we are always on tour. In the last few years we’ve averaged 250 days a year on the road and it has hampered somewhat my work on the brewery. But, as some of you also know, I am retiring from the band at the end of this next tour, on May 5. I guess this could be considered my farewell tour. :) It has become too difficult working on opening this brewery while being on the road away from home so much. I’m really looking forward to being home and getting the brewery off the ground. So, if you happen to live in an area where we are touring for the next couple of months (AB, Australia, MN, IA, MO) come out and see the show as it will most likely be the last time you see me on stage. Well, that’s not quite true because we plan on putting a small stage in the taproom and you might see me on that one, but you know what I mean.

As for the brewery work… We have spent a considerable amount of time working on the numbers (rev/exp projections, construction budget, etc) and are still lining all of our ducks up in a cute little row. We are trying to get a lot of different pieces into place at the same time. I guess normally they would go in sequence but given our situation we are having to work on the simultaneously. No shortage of work, that’s for sure.

One of the pieces we are working on is a “survey” of sorts with local licensees to gauge interest and sales potential. I have already met with a couple of people and the excitement level is very high, to say the least.

So, stay tuned. We have more exciting news to announce shortly but can’t let the cat out of the bag just yet. Take care.
