We saw our friend and neighbor, Scott Vaccaro, owner & brewer of Captain Lawrence Brewing Co. in Pleasantville, NY today and we are now in possession of a few bottles of Golden Delicious. GD is one of Scott's limited release beers. This batch is an American Tripel, dry hopped with Amarillo hops and aged in apple brandy barrels. Yum. Captain Lawrence is a world class brewery and we're glad it's right in our back yard. Captain Lawrence brews will be featured on our Grand Opening (sorry, still waiting to set the date) & these bottles of Golden Delicious are the first of many bottles we plan to age in our cellar. At over 10% ABV Golden D. is a perfect candidate for our Vintage program.
The draught system should be ready to go next week, all of the lines have been run in the basement and we're now working on the Mahogany draught box that will be on the bar (she's going to be a beauty). When everything is tied together in the box we plan to hook up a keg of Captain Lawrence for her maiden voyage. I'll try and document the rest of the install with lots of pictures. As far as we know, few people have ever attempted to install a 20 line draught system from the ground up without contracting a company to do it for them.
