In case you were wondering, yes, we are still working on those floors!
A first coat of finish was applied this weekend, with more to follow in order to withstand the inevitable craft beer spills! Refinishing these original hardwood floors has certainly not been quick or easy, but we hope you'll agree that it's worth the effort to give them a Second Chapter.
On a related note, several long-time Ogallala community members have told us stories about getting to roller skate here some time before it became a library in 1954. We hope that 70 years from now, these floors will still be telling stories!
Several of the bookshelves that had been in the old library are getting a "Second Chapter" as our custom-built card catalog flight boards. Wonderful local craftsmanship by Justin Miller. Thank you!
We received our first shipment of grain Wednesday morning. That also meant we got to try out our slide here at Second Chapter Brewing! That's right, our grain moves down into the basement for storage courtesy of the former Sutherland City Park slide and gravity. It beats taking the stairs!
Huge thanks to Lisa's cousin Tim Kraus for helping out for the day. If only we could have convinced him to try the slide himself...
