February 4th-7th -- it's been a few days since an update and some days tend to become a blur. A few memorable things we did: received our city permit for footings and concrete, which will happen immediately after we finish digging out the basement. We did more digging in this time frame as well.
February 8th -- We dug in the basement and carried out all dirt in 5 gallon buckets. We went to lunch at Pogolino's and the three of us could barely get up when we finished eating. Overall though a very productive day...we ended up close to half done. Thanks to Arnie Foster and John Leech for their help...not only was it very cold, but the work was miserable.
February 9th -- We brewed 10 gallons of black IPA using Cascade, Centennial, and Simcoe hop bursting. We're looking forward to tasting it in the next week or so. I also checked in on the Imperial Breakfast Porter and things are progressing well. Set up a PowerPoint for a presentation to the local Kiwanis Club on the 10th.
February 10th -- A packed day. Have a presentation to the Twin City Kiwanis Club which went well, had an investor meeting, paid quite a few bills, sent out a few membership letters, and prepped some shirt shipments for tomorrow. This was on floor the day to day things like bank visits, emails, and various conversations based on the structural side of what we're doing.
