Yes, we've been a little lax on the newsletters.  Here's a quick rundown of the major things going on:  

Construction News:
Over the last month, we have completed all demolition, framed everything except the bar, completed just about all plumbing work, and are about half way through electrical work.   We've also installed the trench drain (very important).  That took a little bit of patience since the original drain was inadequate, and not installed exactly as we wanted.  That has all been corrected and good to go!  Overall, plumbing work has taken way longer than expected...but it is almost complete. 

Our next steps will be to finish plumbing and electrical so we can start covering things up with drywall.  After that, painting, flooring, light and plumbing fixtures, building the bar...and 1000 other little tasks.  

For those INDIEGOGO supporters, this is that money (and more) directly at work.  

Licensing News: 
TABC (Texas Alcohol Beverage Commission) did confirm that our application was complete and should be issued any day now.  That will be huge!  
One of the biggest challenges of this endeavor is learning about and trying new beer and staying cognizant enough to remember what you've learned...cue the Craft Brewer's Conference in Nashville:  Mike and I were lucky enough to attend, our first one, and it was a blast!  The classes were great, and the Expo of vendors and equipment was pretty overwhelming.  Next year's conference is in Denver...cant wait!  
This is a little project we have been working on for quite some time.  For those folks who sign on to own a little piece of Longtab, we have a coin to commemorate them as plank holders.  This coin is made by Phoenix Challenge Coins, and came out way cooler that we expected.  First off, its really heavy!  One side has the Longtab logo embossed into 3D (the hop actually protrudes from the surface), and the other side has three of our signature glasses (think the three lightening bolts on the SF patch), with a matte black US flag as the backdrop.  Investor's name will also be engraved on the coin.  

If you would like more information, please reply to this email.  
We've restocked a few high request items (green hats and XL size shirts).  The green felt hat that was available through our INDIEGOGO campaign is now available as well!  

The US Army T Shirts are sold out completely in one day.  We are are working on getting more in.  Stay tuned!
