April 27, 2013 Update

So we ran into a slight pickle but as always, the BadWolf team bounces right back. While we get ourselves reorganized and finish the last bit of construction on the ventilation system, our hope is to open late May. We've got our beer recipes ready to brew. The lineup may include:

  • Idea Golden Ale
  • Ginger Ale (yes, it's beer NOT soda)
  • Birdie's Brown Ale
  • Oncoming Storm Belgian Strong Dark
  • Loveless Porter
  • Jeremy's Cola (NA, caffeine free, cane sugar)

There you have it!

Our goal is to utilize local ingredients in many of our recipes. If you know a local farmer who would be interested in supplying us hops, grains, or other beer ingredients, send us an email on the contact tab. Thank you!

Also, we will be giving away all of our spent grains to the community. Spent grains can be used for a variety of reasons. Let us know if you want them.

April 4, On the verge of opening...can you see the light?

If we could count down to opening day, you would be most pleased. The excitement brings back memories of the closing day for our house, only add triple the anticipation and a few more (well, several more) variables! Wave a magic wand and poof, BadWolf is ready. Not so fast! If you think it takes this long, double it. If you think you need x, think 2x. If you think you know it all, you know nothing! That's what I have learned in the past year. Plan it out in so much detail and it sort of helped, even with all the countless hours then you say, "at least I had a plan". Better to think of it as a guide. Persistence is a must and if the quality of self-motivation is nonexistent, you will be screwed. That's my take on this nano operation. At this point, remaining items: revision to the proposed ventilation system and ABC inspection. This is one of the last steps prior to our state license. Once we have the license, we will brew our little butts off. And as the wife in this operation, I will learn to brew too! I look forward to making my own beer along side Jeremy. I would like to name one of my beers "Git Some" or "BadWolf One". If you want to receive the email for our opening date, send us your email address:

Cheers all! A BIG Thank you goes out to everyone who has helped us so far. We are so close and we look forward to sharing our pints with you and the community!!
