Summer is movin fast

Hey all you beer drinkers!

Figured I should try to get everyone up to date with what we have going on. First of all I want to take a moment and welcome Nate Peck to our crazy band of beer guys. Nate has moved up here from Madison and will be getting the scoop on how to be Todd's new Assistant Brewer! Welcome Aboard Nate - Welcome to the Asylum!

We have had some pretty amazing events over the last several weekends. Events have been held in Chetek, Minoqua, Clayton, Marshfield and of course THE Great Taste of The Midwest which is held in Madison. I want take a moment and thank all of the great folks that help us out at these events. Without your dedication we couldn't pull it off.

The month of September will be a busy one for us as well. We have many events including the 9th Annual Clearwater Brewfest which will be held on September 6th at the Eau Claire Expo Center from 3pm to 7pm. This event is sponsored by the Eau Claire Jaycees, The Coffee Grounds, Clearchannel and...The Sand Creek Brewing Company! WOO HOO! (2nd year in a row!) Come check out the fun on that day.

This weekend we will have our usual tours and general fun on Friday starting at 3pm and we will be open for our tours this Saturday from 12noon till 4pm.

I have added a few google/gadgets to our blog so you can keep track of our favorite Wisconsin teams.

Also check out our keen logo for our 2nd Annual Oktoberfest! Plan on attending this great event on Saturday October 4th from 10am - till 7pm (ish). Three bands (2 polka and 1 Celtic), smoked goodness from our friend Kevin from the Tegarosa Cattle Company, arts and craft vendors, carshow, kids games and a ton more things!.

As always you can find out the entire scoop on our website.

Have a great one!

Busy, Busy,Busy

Hey everybody!
Been working my butt off getting beer out to the worlds greatest beer drinkers.
I just spent 9 days in Georgia enjoying the sweltering heat and humidity, couldn't imagine brewing in that heat all day!
We stopped in to see a bunch of brewpubs and the gang at Terrapin brewing.
Stopped in on a Friday afternoon and the place was about done for the week but in the world of beer we always have time to tip a few back with fellow brewers.
John rolled out a couple of their 22oz. bombers full of rauchbier. That was nicely smoked and very drinkable.
We also had some of their imperial pilsner and I think it was an imperial IPA, both great beers.
Everything we tried was good, Nancy was glad we stopped, so was Kirsten.
We also stopped in at the 5points bottle shop store in Athens, Man they had the selection.
We were in single malt heaven and the beers were well taken care too.
I think there might be another trip in the plans for beer drinking down south!
But for now I must get back to keeping production up so that we don't run out of beer.
The Great Taste is next weekend and I'm not sure if we will be open, It's best to check the phone message before you drive out to see us.
