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 still have no home for it and it's here.
Well we have the venue and our equipment slab is down but it needs to cure and be sealed before we can do anything with it… Thinking we had until April we calculated that we would have just enough time. But when they said they’d ship in March they must have meant March 1st (we assume), it definitely is March but errr… yeah. When they told us three containers full of gear we assumed it’d take about four week to clear customs and get over to us. Nope, it took half that time.
So what should have been the most exciting time of our lives receives (yet again) an injection of fear and hesitation. Where are we going to store this gear? When will we have to start paying for it? How long before we can actually flick the switch and start the fire?
At least we have a space, a plan and money right? Well two out of three ain’t bad... We’ve touched base with all of our investors to let them know what’s what and so far they’ve been great to us. We've had to chase up a few who are yet to give us promised funds and are currently battling with one of our major investors. He’s in but the battles continue, we lost a few investors due to the butter factory fallout and we’re still trying to scrape around from that. We’re pretty cash poor at the moment but where there’s a will there’s a way, and by God do we have the will!
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.
