As we anticipated, it is not easy transforming a former 1920s Legion Hall / 1950s library into a modern taproom and brewery. Fortunately, the structural integrity of the building is sufficient to support the weight of a brewery on the main level so our customers will be able to see where the grain will be transformed into delicious craft beer.
Here are a few throwback pics from earlier this winter when MD Construction and Jackson Concrete poured the new concrete floors for Second Chapter Brewing. We only needed a 110' boom on the pumper truck!
Thanks to the Nebraska Craft Brewers Guild and American Beverage Company for letting us take a sneak peak of our new brew system this week on a factory tour in Lincoln, Nebraska. Our five-bbl, electric, oil-jacketed brewhouse and tanks are ready to be shipped and installed soon in Ogallala!
What a difference! We were able to take advantage of warmer weather a few weeks ago and replace four of the windows at the brewery. Can't wait to get the rest of them in and make this building shine!
