New Tanks Are Up and Ready

Weston Brewing is getting ready for a big 2013.  Two new 45bbls fermentation tanks were delivered to the brewery from Oregon this week.  This was both an exciting and gut wrenching event.  These tanks are twice as big as anything we had ever dealt with before. 
The first photo is Mike surveying Damon surveying Peter working on placing the first tank.
The second photo shows the tanks in all their new glory.
We are looking forward to getting some Cream Ale and Royal Lager into these beauties.

Mike Turns the Big 40

You only turn 40 once and what better way to celebrate then a few thousand feet above Weston.  Mike had been training to be a pilot when duty and beer called him to Weston nearly eight years ago.  Luckily O'Malley's patron and flight instructor Ric Middlecamp is working to get him back in the air.  Mike and Ric piloted the plane as Corey sat in the back enjoying the ride.  The first picture is Mike and Ric with the Cessna prior to take off.  The other photo is the aerial view of Weston.  If you look closely enough O'Malley's is the big white roof in the center of the photo.
