Location update for Rip Cord Double IPA
This is the Rip Cord Double IPA daily location update. Given all the interest we will do a rolling daily update every afternoon so you know where Rip Cord is on draft, delivered, and get a sneak peak at upcoming locations. Also, we announce deliveries in the daily update and will do our best to announce when a location has put Rip Cord on draft too as they happen It’s a bit of coordination on our part but we think makes it easier on everyone. To date everyone ordering Rip Cord carries one or both of our other current beers Lift Off IPA and Muse BGA so you also should have a chance to sample our lineup at one place.
Muse BGA update and future Belgian Seasonal plans
We have had Muse Belgian Golden Ale out now for almost a month in locations across Indiana. We are really pleased at the feedback and that people are enjoying it. We wanted to answer the most frequest questions we have had about Muse, which is “how long are you making it?” and “are you going to make more Belgians?” On the first question, Muse is the first seasonal beer from our new Beligan series. As for dates we are roughly following the calendar seasons. Muse is our Winter seasonal with availability from February to April, which means we can brew it once a month so that people get the full benefit of fresh craft beer. On the second question, we plan to make four Belgian seasonal beers this year with one per season. We have shown this on our website with estimated dates but not yet announced the beer names or beer style for each season. All we can say on this without spoiling the surprise is that you can expect each seasonal beer style to match the season we brew it. For now, enjoy Muse. Take advantage of it being around another couple months. We know we will.
Daredevil Brewing Co: The making of a craft brewery – part 2
This is part 2 of our story of how we built Daredevil Brewing Co. In part one we covered the brand and marketing aspects and here in part 2 we get to cover more of the operational aspects. Obviously this is not all the gritty details but we wanted to share enough of the important aspects so you can understand how we got here, what equipment we use to actually make beer and some of our inspiration that drives us to work days, nights and weekends to make it all happen. Why do we do it? For lots of reasons, but mainly we do it because we love craft beer and we love sharing it with people who love it as much as we do. Making a brewery plan that worked for us When we were working on our business plan we agreed on several requirements that we needed in order to get Daredevil up and running on our terms. These included: We needed enough production capacity to brew on weekends so we could maintain our current day jobs while building the new business. We needed a brewery that could scale to >2000 BBLs per year on a weekend...
