Truck with special prizes inside

This week I lucked out on my visit to Gonzo’s. I made it there on a delivery day and managed to get a couple shots of some equipment being unloaded. This in and of itself doesn’t seem like much. It can be hard to measure the changes that are happening when they are only incremental changes.

Where ever you can find some room will be great.

This delivery only had one item, the glycol chiller. Even with one item, the deliveries are pretty big when you consider you need a forklift to get it off the truck. Now that the chiller has arrived it is time to start setting up its final home.

Most of the brew house is now at the brewery. Aside from the malt conveyor most of what is still needed are minor odds and ends. It is coming time to put the giant jigsaw puzzle together.

Getting close to finishing touches on the walls.

The bar is leaps and bounds further along that what it was only a few short weeks ago. And they have now started to paint. The walls and ceiling are on their way to their final colors. At the time of my visit the painter was busy painting one of the walls its final color.

We spent a few minutes talking about the final look of the bar this time. Gonzo mentioned that the bar will be finished with barn wood. This wood will be coming in from five different Michigan farms. Though none of it will match it will give the finished bar character and style that you won’t find in other bars.

Time for a pint…
