Progress Report 6.23.17

So far, so great!

Canteen Craft Beer Catering logoHIresThank you so much to all of the loyal friends & patrons that frequent our hidden gem of a nano-brewery.  With your help we have been consistently growing month over month, which gives us the freedom & ability to improve our business. If you have been in recently, you’ll know that Lisa has left her day job, and has come on board full time to take some of the workload off of Robb’s shoulders. We have also reconfigured some of our space to allow for a canteen area where Canteen Craft Beer Catering will soon be setting up shop. They will start out with small plates like artisan cheese & charcuterie boards, and beer cheese dip with pretzel bites, and plan on expanding into hot foods like brats and meatballs.

These ratings are a huge boost to us! If you haven’t yet, please take a moment to write us a (good) review on one or all of these sites. Also, if you are on Untappd, definitely check in your beer to earn your Grindhaus badge and start earning rewards. We are fortunate to be chosen as one of the few local venues to have a custom badge of our very own.

Our intent was to start it up in June, but fortunately the signage came in early. Without telling anyone, we quietly popped the small posters up in the taproom to see if people would notice. Within a day Take 4 had started selling itself, and before we knew it, we had sold over 25 of our planned 50 membership slots! Single memberships for the rest of 2017 are $60 and include a free 32oz flight every month, 25% off all additional flights, 10% off food and merchandise (Canteen will be included when they start up in July), a Grindhaus logo pint glass and T-shirt, and an exclusive invitation to our monthly members only specialty beer release night – this month the beer was a tart & refreshing raspberry & blackberry Wheat Ale called I Know What You Did Last Summer Solstice, and it went over like gangbusters! If you’d like to become a member, talk to Robb or Lisa next time you’re in. Slots are filling up fast though, so get in soon!

Special thanks to our friends Steve & Mike for stepping up to help Robb last week while Lisa was in Minneapolis leading a seminar at Homebrew Con. We truly appreciate it and look forward to sharing a couple of beers with you that Lisa picked up while she was gone. Also, thank you to our award-winning Graphic Designer friend Anthony for helping Canteen Craft Beer Catering build a striking & appealing logo.
