It’s been a few weeks now, but there’s something different happening with our brewhouse at night.
Something we haven’t done before in the ten years we’ve been brewing: overnight shifts!
Yep, that’s right. As of last month, we’ve been on a 24-hour schedule, with folks in the brewhouse at all hours during the week.
Although, we’re not complete savages. There are some folks who come in on the weekends, but our overnight crew works hard during the week so that they can have weekends off.
Brewer Mike McGrath and Packaging Lead Sean McGuirl are the first two to ever work these overnight shifts, and are typically alone in the brewhouse for about five hours in the middle of the night, between the rest of the packaging team leaving and the morning crew coming in at the crack of dawn.
We get to check out some pretty cool things about what goes into our brewing process and clean up at the end of the night, and even some spooky-adjacent happenings.
