    Hey, Farm Boy......I went to a new brewery you'd like.

    Yesterday we went to a new brewery located in an old grain elevator. This one is from the turn of the century. The beer was goon the weather was awesome. It was 73 degrees with a slight breeze. It was the perfect rest from all the craziness going on.

    The very cool thing is the interior of the old elevator is all stacked true dimension 2x12, and one wall has been sanded by grain , probably a couple million pounds of grain.

    Oh the "patio" is the old scale. It's the Old Colorado Brewing Company.

    Cool. I would love to take that tour.

    The abrasive power of grain is amazing. Given time it will eat through 1/4" AR400 steel and 3/8" solid ceramic tile. I have a couple 4"x6"x3/8" ceramic tiles that have had all the casting flash worn off that I use for the finally polish on an edge.

    They just let you wander around. They turned the silos into the tasting room. They cut doors in the walls so you can walk through 3 of the origional silos.

    Solos are cool but I want to see the equipment that made it work. I want to check out the boot pit and head house. I want to see the bulk scales (if it had them) and turn heads. I am just a nerd like that. Good beer would just be a reward.
