And the work begins...

As summer winds down, construction begins and Angry Horse Brewing is officially breaking ground.

We are very excited to announce that after months of planning, meeting with contractors and working with the city of Montebello, we are finally beginning construction. Our contractors will be in the building, setting our foundation, so we can begin producing our beer in our new home. It's going to be a hefty couple of months though. We have to add a second restroom, upgrade the electrical, add drainage, add plumbing, install a brewhouse, walk-in and bar...

Our first step is adding drainage and plumbing. We have to run floor drains; one for the bar, one for the brewhouse and two for the sinks. We're running drainage to our newly installed restroom too. We're also planning on adding a long trench drain. This is going to help us to make sure that our brewhouse is clean after each batch.  

Next, where there are drains, there can be water! We will be running water to the bar, brewhouse, restroom and sinks. We are running two lines to most areas. One for filtered, conditioned water and the other for washing water. We will also need to run hot water.

Then, it's onto the electrical.  We need to upgrade the power in the building and re-run all of the internal power lines. This is going to be important as we grow.  

In aspiring to be as sustainable as possible, we plan to install solar panels and a large solar water heater. While the solar panels won't be enough to power the entire brewhouse, they will contribute quite a bit. But the solar water heater is going to be huge. This should be able to provide much of the hot water we need for the brewery and taproom!

So wish us luck and stay tuned .. more updates and photos to come!
