The Brewhouse has Set Sail for New Jersey

FINALLYYYYYYYYYYY the brewhouse has shipped!!!!!  Its been a long time coming and many sleepless nights waiting for this news.  Approximately 30-35 days in transit and our baby will arrive!  If all goes according to plan (which nothing has so far) we can start delivering kegs to the patiently waiting bars & restaurants of Ocean & Monmouth Counties late June/early July.  Here's some pictures:

Tap Handle Prototype

After about a month of anxious waiting, our tap handle prototype arrived today! Its pretty damn nice for a prototype, can't wait for the final version. Imagine opening a box with 100 of these in it, it'll be like Christmas morning!

Forced to re-brand, Rinn Duin emerges strong

As of Monday April 8, the Blackthorn Brewing brand will be Rinn Duin Brewing.

Due to an unforeseen legal technicality, we cannot sell under the brand name "Blackthorn".  Blackthorn Brewing LLC will remain the parent company and products will be sold as Rinn Duin Brewing.

All social media will be uniform, www.[insertsocialmedia].com/rinnduinbeer

CBC & Construction Updates

CBC 2013

Last week we attended the Craft Brewers Conference in Washington, DC.  Here's the best analogy I've come up with:

Kids --> Toys R Us  =  Big Kids --> Craft Brewers Conference

It was the largest CBC the Brewers Association has held, with over 6,000 attendees from around the world.  90 seminars were held over 3 days, covering topics from dry-hopping techniques to hospitality management.  We met so many great people and can't wait to officially join the craft brewing community!

Construction Updates

The Pub is spackled and primed, it'll get painted shortly and the floor is scheduled to be installed on Friday.  All the windows and doors are framed, now they just need glass!  The cabinets for the bar were dropped off last week, the bar itself will delivered once the floor is in.
