Thanks to Will Robl and the staff at Historic Downtown Wilson for asking us to host. There will be great music, food trucks, and Craft Beer from The Beer Store. See you Saturday from 11 am till 3 pm on the 217 Brew Works Beer Garden at 200 Douglas Street. Corner of South and Douglas Street in Historic Downtown Wilson.

Another productive day on Friday at 217 Brew Works. John Kater and I picked up the air compressor. John was in Raleigh on Thursday and picked up our grain mill and pallet jack.

John started working on installing the glycol chiller. Thanks to our electricians for leaving the lift for the weekend. Thanks to Henry Walston and the folks at the Whirligig restoration center for the use of the forklift. Unfortunately the keg cleaner we were expecting did not get delivered but should be here by October 8th when we expect the brewery equipment to arrive at port. We should see it delivered to Wilson the following week.

Jimmy Sink finished the enclosure around the heat pump units on the beer garden. He will also be making the safety railings for the loading ramp.
