Rather than buying a brand new brewing systems or even a complete used brewing system, we decided to put build our own “Franken-brewery” from tanks we discovered in Massachusetts and Maine. We used a Maine-based welder to help fabricate the system and retro-fit some of the tanks. Yes, our “baby” is a bit ugly, but no one seems to mind once they taste what comes out of it!
In the microbrewing world, we are considered nano-sized, producing batches of about 3 barrels (or 93 gallons) each time we brew.
Throwback beer is hand-bottled. We also don’t filter the beer, which we thinks helps give our beers multiple levels of flavor.
