Greetings Roundhouse Faithful!
We are on the eve of an historic moment, the kegging of our first two beers: Golden Spike IPA and Cowcatcher Ale. I was super stoked to hear that Chuck named one of our beers Cowcatcher. You see, I always pictured a Cowcatcher as a large noble person who was called upon to catch a cow that was in need. Say, if Bessie was stuck on the 3rd floor of a burning building, the Cowcatcher would safely catch her. I am sure I saw this on the news somewhere.
I did something I don’t normally do as the Minster of Information, I fact checked it. Now, I could have read the Beers section of our own website or even asked Chuck who is standing 10 feet away. Instead, I opted to Google it and much to my horror I found this. This thing does not safely catch cows at all. It sends them. It is a Cowsender.
Instead of gently landing in the arms of a Firefighter, Bessie is suddenly entered in the Big Air competition at the X Games.
At this point of the Blog post you are probably wondering what any of this has to do with the Brewery. Nothing really, except this part: Now that we are opening soon we will be posting photos, videos, and other nonsense on a daily basis. Instead of swamping your Facebook account, the vast majority of our posts will be on Instagram at: Roundhouse1551. I will still continue to update the Blog and Facebook with any major news. But if this not enough for you, check us out on Instagram.
