Updates on our progress... location, licensing, beer etc.
Location: If you haven't heard, we have a location! We are located at 3720 West River Drive NE, Suite 20, Comstock Park, MI 49321. It's tucked away on the back side of the building, facing Laramie Drive. MEIN Office Furniture occupies the upstairs portion of the building. The minimal construction he had to do is nearly finished. Initially we were shooting for 1500 sq ft when we began looking for a location, but we ended up with exactly twice as much space, at 3000 sq ft. That means lots of room for beer. That means lots of room for aging spontaneously fermented beer!
Licensing: Our MLCC and TTB applications are both being reviewed as of right now. We will set an opening date as soon as we get our necessary licenses. Right now it's looking like December/January. We WILL be doing a bottle club. The details are not completely worked out yet, but we will announce it as soon as we are fully licensed! All I can say right now is that it will be worth it... Two nice glasses and 12 member only bottles!
Pilot batch bottles: Mitch has been hard at work brewing test batches for Speciation at home. You may have seen the bottles around because of our t-shirt promotion, or at a bottle share. We can't sell this beer, so it's mainly to get the word out about what we will be doing at Speciation. Look for it at bottle shares around GR. If you are hosting a bottle share and would like one of our bottles, send us a message though the contact page.
Look for more updates in the near future, and feel free to reach out with any questions, comments, or concerns. Cheers!
