Are you watching as the new Earthbound is unearthed? It’s amazing

Beer Of The Week

10869414_944758605549232_5534172990938300929_oBack in September we learned that Earthbound Brewing, our area’s funkiest brewing company was making a big move, expanding out of their current location at 2710 Cherokee, and bolting a few doors down to 2724 Cherokee, an address with a rich brewing past.  The new location once housed the Cherokee Brewery, which operated in the last quarter of the 19th Century.

The expansion is gutsy, Earthbound has only been around about a year.  But owners Stuart Keating, Jeff Siddons, and Rebecca Schranz appear to be up to the task, running both their current brewery and working the construction of the new brewery simultaneously.

And they’ve been documenting all of it on social media, providing some amazing photos of the unearthing and construction.  They are really worth checking out.

We put Rebecca in charge of deconstructing the baffling plywood walls built over the beautiful brick of our new brewhouse. Buy her a beer if you see her out in the world, it’s been a hell of a week.

The conveyor belt is in the basement! The rubble will come out and then the fermenters, brites, and canning line go down… ? #butt
