I have also assumed that AleSmith was a play on these words. i.e. someone who crafts beer. Hence the Blacksmith anvil in the logo.


I know. I too assumed Belgian wasn't being serious.

I just assumed that Belgian wasn't being serious. But if he was, you've exactly explained it above.

I just assumed that you'd know Belgian wasn't being serious. Or… maybe now I'm just saying that? You may never know!

I assumed that most would have made the assumption that Belgian was or was not being serious.

you a betting man?
they haven't broken ground and i think it needs to go to CoA.

wish it were faster, but let's be realistic.

Looks like things are progressing, the place is getting set up. Exciting.

They weren't open the other night but a few of them were chatting at the unfinished bar inside so I said a quick hello. Wasn't
Bim but a few of the other folks. Said maybe in a few weeks they be up and rolling. But we will see!

The retail store opens tomorrow with 3 different beers, all in 355 cans. The taproom should open sometime in July.

Good news.

Hopefully they will soon have enough time to get a real website. Leaving your marketing in the hands of fleecebook is just foolish. Sure, have a presence, but don't be dependent on somebody elses profit motive. :rant

Pretty long line, which is moving very slowly.

The three beers are a Dortmunnder, a stout and an IPA. Doesn't sound like any of them are particularly adventurous, but I haven't tried them yet.

I know it's their first day, but they were unable to keep that line moving and I left after a long wait and no movement.

The bigger the crowd, the more people show up.
