    Don’t Quit Your Daydream

August 5, 2018

Look ma, we’re on TV!!

Last week we had the pleasure of the local CBS news crew swinging by the brewery to see the initial progress and raise a glass (ok, solo cup) for good luck towards a successful buildout for an opening this fall.

You can check out the story here.

They’ll be coming back at the end of September for round two and a progress update, so stay tuned!

We Had A Girl!!

Well, the “royal we” did not have a girl. But the Head Brewer and MOST importantly his talented beautiful wife had a girl.

Welcome Reverie Brewing Company’s first baby!

Penelope but you can call her “Nellie”.

This little line manager is sure to keep us on point as we build out our tap room and supply tasty refreshing beers.

Nobody better to drive your dreams forward than a little cherub sent from heaven.

Watch out walls you’re numbered! Losen up concrete, you’re about to be cut! Find a new lease mice! You’re evicted!!

It’s one thing to have a plan to do something, it’s a whole nother thing to do that thing. And that’s what we’ve been up to.

Masks on, goggles up, that’s the way we like to demo! Saftey first of course. Well… there may have been a few moment we could have been safer. BUT THAT DOESN’T MATTER WHEN YOUR FIRST AID KIT IS THE SIZE OF A TINY CHILD!

Anyway, check out some of the sweet pics below and you’ll get it. Focused a bit more on the bathroom in the past couple weeks, but you know what, you’re gonna appreciate it later.

 

Woot woot!! Nothing feels better than hearing the word “Yes”. And we just had that happen twice… so yeah… we’re feeling pretty good right now.

The first yes came from the Newtown Planning and Zoning board. Who has approved us to open a brewery and tasting room at 57B Church Hill Road. So drop a pin and save that address to be ready to toast your friends come opening day.

The second yes came from the TTB. We were all nervous about talking to the federal government. Which is counter to everything we’ve read and heard from other breweries. And boy were they right. The TTB was great and very helpful in getting us through the approval process.

While we’ve been brewing and working on recipes without the approvals we thought it would be fun to celebrate by having a double brew session. Check out the photos below. Being that we’re dreamers we couldn’t just pick two recipes that were similar. So we brewed an East Coast IPA and a Banana Chocolate Stout.

We’re working towards having a wide range of beer options for opening, including a cider. Because it’s really tough to keep on daydreaming when you don’t have the right liquid to inspire you.

Starting construction on the new space so stay tuned for more updates.

Cheers!

Living The Dream!

Well almost… It’s our dream to own, operate and work at a brewery that has a positive impact on the community around it while serving delicious brews worth daydreaming about.

We’ve been working on this dream for almost a year now and every day it gets closer to a reality. Right now we’re learning about the pain points of zoning, equipment procurement and all this “licensing” stuff you’ve probably heard about from other breweries who have trailblazed ahead of us.

It might not sound like a lot of fun, but when you’re trying to make your dreams come true, you’d be surprised by what starts seeming less like a challenge and more like an opportunity to grow.

We know you’re probably looking for a couple of glory shots of beer, so here’s a few to hold you over for a recent test batch we’re working on. It’s a Carolina BBQ-inspired amber ale. Here’s hoping that it makes a way from our fermentors to a glass in your hand soon.

Come back to our blog for updates and progress on the space and hear about other things we’re dreaming about.

Blog Heading Here

Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry’s standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic.

It is a long established fact that a reader will be distracted by the readable content of a page when looking at its layout. The point of using Lorem Ipsum is that it has a more-or-less normal distribution of letters, as opposed to using ‘Content here, content here’, making it look like readable English. Many desktop publishing packages and web page editors now use Lorem Ipsum as their default model text, and a search for ‘lorem ipsum’ will uncover many web sites still in their infancy. Various versions have evolved over the years, sometimes by accident, sometimes on purpose.

There are many variations of passages of Lorem Ipsum available, but the majority have suffered alteration in some form, by injected humour, or randomised words which don’t look even slightly believable. If you are going to use a passage of Lorem Ipsum, you need to be sure there isn’t anything embarrassing hidden in the middle of text.
