One year ago...

Looking over some of the old blog posts, I noticed that our very first update was posted on April 30, 2011 -- nearly one year ago.  And what a year it has been.  We should have named this blog "Blood, Sweat, and Beers" after everything that we have been through.  But everything has finally come to fruition, and we couldn't be more excited. 

The manual labor portion of our work is dwindling to a smaller and smaller list of tasks.  Pretty soon, we will have to shift gears and focus on operations.  This means hiring future CB's employees.  If you are interested in working for us, stop by and pick up an application.  We are going to begin hiring very soon, because we are *insert celebratory music here* opening soon!  Everybody can expect an opening day in May.

Yes, this blog has been the "boy who has cried wolf" several times.  But I swear -- this time it is for real!  Our biggest albatross around our neck has been that darn fire sprinkler system, and it is in its final stages of completion.  We are down to the nitty gritty work -- installing fixtures, trim, appliances, etc..  This is the type of work that moves at a much faster pace than crap tasks (like drywalling), so we should speed through them quickly.  Also, we purchased all of our kegging equipment (hoses, regulators, taps, shanks, etc.), and we will soon be installing our twelve tap system.  That's right.  TWELVE!  We will be the ONLY bar in Delta to offer a diverse palate of beer styles from Grimm Brothers, Ska, Palisade, Revolution, Oskar Blues, and other craft breweries. 

That's it for now, folks.  Keep your ears close to the ground, because our opening day is just around the corner.  This is what you have been waiting for all year!
