    Default LIZFs Brewing News Thread

    I’ve done the heavy lifting by getting this thread started. Long Island Zag Fan can take it from here.

    Soooo... here it goes. As they say... #### just got real. So, as I said on the other thread... my meeting with the town left me, to say the least, a bit depressed. They said it is a good spot for a brewery but wanted fire sprinklers, more paving in the parking lot, better drainage, etc. PLus the landlord leases out part of the back lot to lawn companies to store their trucks. They said they didn't have any COs allowing that... etc. My expectation was that we'd go in and tell him all of this and he'd say "Good day gentlemen" and we'd be back to square one. Didn't quite go that way. He has COs for the truck storage from, get this, 1972. Basically, town can't make him do a thing. He was a bit nervous about the paving and fire sprinklers. But he was still on board with us being tenants. Then his lawyer showed up... normally that sentence would mean something bad... not this time. He went through some of the ways we could get around some of the things the town wanted and was really really helpful. Didn't hurt that we brought a couple of bottles of beer with us. So the end result was they are going to get us a tenative lease (dependent on town approvals) so that outside of expenses to certify everything for the town we wouldn't be laying out dinero until we had to. So, Take Two Brewery Inc... basically has a home!!!!

    I have a feeling this thread is going places.

    I'll post here as things progress. Obviously it will be slow going at first as most projects are. Lots of hurry up and wait.

    No real news to report... but... getting in to measure later this week so we have a better plan for the tasting room. Have tons of ideas but need to have a better grasp of the layout.

    Labels are going to have to wait until we start canning... hopefully not too far down the road... might turn to someone here for that.

    I'll be honest, sometimes I buy beer based on the artwork on the label. I also sometimes choose not to buy if it is poorly done. no pressure

    Meeting with an architect, hopefully this week, to determine tasting room/cold storage/brewery space options.

    Well that was a non-starter. Landlord was supposed to leave a key yesterday. Turns out he was letting a guy use the warehouse area to store stuff for a couple weeks while he cleans up from a fire. Guy was supposed to come down and leave the key in the AM. We get down there and no key. Architect moved to Monday.

    Not all that glamorous from what I can tell. Honestly, he is just a regular architect. BUT he has worked on a couple breweries on LI. In fact I got his information from the second largest brewery on LI (Great South Bay Brewery). Man, this industry is tight. Have had nothing but a great experience with all the brewers I talk to. They all bend over backwards to help and give advice.
