#Sycamovember - Movember Mustache Party

Movember is an annual event involving the growing of mustaches during the month of November to raise awareness of men’s health issues, including prostate cancer.  Cancer prevention is a cause near and dear to Sycamore Brewing’s heart and we are thrilled to be participating in our first ever Movember!  The goal of Movember is to “change the face of men’s health” and we are proud to be part of this great cause!

I happily support the creepier look the brewery staff (my husband included) have embraced over the past few weeks in the name of men’s health.  

By encouraging men to get involved and grow a sweet ‘stache during the month of November, the Movember Foundation aims to increase the early detection, diagnosis and treatments and reduce the number of preventable deaths.  

Our first annual Movember party will take place on Saturday November 29th.  We’ll also be releasing our small batch brew, ‘Ironic Hipster Mustache’ which is a hoppy, blond ale brewed with organic cold-pressed pomgranate juice.  100% proceeds of this small batch will be donated to the Movember fund.

Last year the US Movember campaign raised almost 23 million dollars for men’s health organizations. Let’s do our part to make this year an even bigger success!

We’ll have live music provided by the band Hunter’s Travesty, prizes for mustaches, including ‘best in show’, ‘creepiest’ etc and of course tons of good beer and good times.

Today is the Day!

After three years of hard work and sleepless nights we can finally invite you to Sycamore Brewing!

As I write this, the weather stinks, and there’s a chance of rain this afternoon, but that’s not slowing us down!  In addition to our awesome taproom, we’ve rented the biggest tent they have (it’s huge!), put it over our stage and jockey boxes, and filled it with string lights.  This thing is still happening in a big way!

 

Not kidding… this tent is huge!

Sycamore Brewing: Before and After

Transforming an old auto garage into a taproom and production brewery is no small feat.  Looking back at the photographs we’ve taken along the way, I’m blown away by both the progress and scope of the project.  I hope you’ll join us at the brewery this November 1st to celebrate the culmination of a huge amount of hard work! 

Over the course of just under a year, we took this old 1950's building back to four walls and a roof.  In the production area, we even removed the sturdy concrete floor in order to install our trench drains and achieve adequate drainage.

One year later. From auto garage to Sycamore Brewing's taproom.  On nice days, that glass door is going up!

With most interior walls removed, we were left with a giant, empty concrete-block box.  It was now time to begin transforming this ugly, empty box into an inviting space and bustling production brewery.  

Justin and I have both worn many hats throughout this project and will continue to do anything necessary in order to create and sustain a successful brewery.  Among other things, Justin has been responsible for all of the brewery operations.  He sourced the equipment, installed the equipment and has now brewed several batches of beer on our 15 Barrel brewhouse. 

Justin has been onsite every day and has built the brewery from the ground up.  I know he feels a huge sense of pride knowing that he touched every screw, every tri-clamp, every foot of glycol piping in the brewery.  I am happy to report that our first five batches of beer brewed on the brewhouse are fermenting well and tasting great!

While Justin’s focus has been the production side of the business, I have focused on the front of house as well as the overall look and feel of the brewery.  It was important to me that we create a warm welcoming space where people would feel at home enjoying a couple of beers.  I’m happy with the results and hope to continually improve the space and the property in the months and years to come.  

Thanks!  We hope to see you on November 1st!

Cheers,

Sarah
