Two days after we get our DA the council throws us a curve ball. Yes it was approved but State Water is going to require a treatment plant. After 4 or 5 months of going over this they realise two days after issuing the DA that it might be required.
This is a big cost and of course means the destruction (at least in part) of our new floor.
I loose an entire weekend on the application to State Water and have no idea how long it will take for the approval to come from them.
Less than two weeks is the answer to that question. I couldn't believe it. We got our approval back from State Water in under two weeks.
But... Council will require us to change the treatment system. Why? because they're not comfortable with parts of it. We used plans from other breweries that have been approved by State Water for other sites in NSW. State Water has given ours a tick, but our council needs it changed... Of course they do.
This Saturday, May 19th, we will officially be opening our brewery!! Our kitchen will be producing some scrumptious food, all 24 taps on our shiny new draft system will be pouring a multitude of beers and ciders and the sun will be shining down on us (hopefully). We hope you can come down and join for what is to be a memorable day, and just the first of many more to come as TRBC steps on down the road we began on so long ago. With that aside lets have a small rundown of our story so far:
As many of you may know we're always hard at work putting in upgrades down at the brewery. We’ve also got another big one on the way so we thought we’d fill you in on all the hard work that has been going on behind the scenes.
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!
