This week we will be getting a large shipment of new glassware. Why is this news, and why am I writing about it? Because our philosophy is to provide the best beer experience possible for our customers without compromising all of the work and creativity it took to get the beer in the glass. To me, this is exciting because you get a better representation of the art and science of beer making. Think of it this way: it is glassware tailored to the beer you drink. It is more work for the servers and more expensive, but it will be a better experience for the customer. The traditional pint glass, which is actually a shaker glass designed for mixed drinks, will be used sparingly. The shaker works, but it does not provide the best experience. The optimum aromatic and flavor profile is what we are shooting for.

After a great first full year of brewing, we came to the conclusion that a bigger fermenter and a refrigerated brite tank will give us more options and flexibility, but more importantly…the ability to brew more beer! At one point last year, we came close to running completely out of beer. We only had three fermenters that were being filled and emptied as quickly as possible.

We are excited to share the launch of our new brewery website! As we head into our second year, we thought it was time to freshen up our site and expand our communication with current and future customers. We hope you like the new look, which was designed by Jessica Confer, owner of Tin Can Creative Co. in Ithaca, NY. Jessica and SBC Head Brewer Chad Zimar worked together over the winter and spring to come up with a site that better represents who we are and the direction we are going. Over the past year and a half, we’ve had great feedback from our customers who enjoy coming to the brewery because of its warm, inviting atmosphere and great beer. We wanted that same feeling to come through in our website.
