Noticed anything different recently? Yea, we didn’t think we’d fool you that easily! We’ve gone and gotten ourselves a new website.
What’s the difference? Well, it’s rather swanky for one! Everything is still pretty much the same behind the makeover, however, one major difference is that we now have a new online shop available for you to use, and it’s live right now!
WE GET ASKED, A LOT... WHAT'S WITH THE LOGO? WELL LET US EXPLAIN...
Anyone who has had a business knows that the logo is very important. In my opinion it needs to be simple, memorable and have some value beyond just being pretty
So back in October last year we told you about the plans we were laying out to move and expand our business into the Old Butter Factory building in Tumut.After trials and tribulations this move unfortunately fell through, and although we were disheartened at this set back we know that these things happen and we wouldn’t have gotten to where we are now without falling down and picking ourselves back up.
Alright, now the fun part! Our gear is here and the slab is treated and ready to rock and roll. So it’s time to actually put the final pieces of the puzzle together. We needed a little help getting it up off the ground and positioning it because, who would have thought, brewing equipment is freaking heavy.
Everything is late, it always is. In todays world nothing and no one can turn up on time, it’s the one thing you can count on. Not Spark brewing equipment, God Damn it! Everything seems to have a mind of its own with this project and our shiny new furniture delivery was no exception.
We have a new brewery arriving in three weeks and nowhere to set it up. The dust settled pretty quickly after we were left out in the rain by that last guy and we started throwing out the feelers searching desperately for a new place in which to build our home.
We teed off after the last article and landed straight in the rough, or straight in the water really. Delays with the venue continued to back us up until a week (literally seven days) before our first contractor arrived on site and then the landlord pulled out.
Christmas is on its way and we don’t seem to be any closer to our new venue. Although we’ve completed and submitted all the paperwork we’re still waiting on some approvals so in someway it's relieving that we haven’t moved house yet. Although our new venue would have been a wonderful self Christmas present.
Why do we make beer? Because we have a passion for it and really enjoy drinking it. Now drinking beer is exceptionally enjoyable, and making it is equally as fun however once you begin going down the road of business that we’re on you’ll find that there are some elements of it that aren’t so much fun. Like paperwork.
This has been in the pipeline for a while, and now that it has finally come to fruition we can tell you guys all about our move and why we’re so excited! There’re a lot of new and exciting things happening, so this may be a little longer than our other articles but trust us, it’s worth it!
By far the most exciting thing that has happened to us in a while, Bertha means big things for us here down at Tumut River Brewing Co. Bertha -seen here in all her glory- is our new bottling plant which we picked up during mid-August, for a fine price, from our friends at Cavalier Brewing.
As most of you know we have had our first bottling run and it was a fantastic success (to those of you still waiting on pre-orders they are here, we just have to get them to you). Moving forward we need to get our own six pack baskets made.
