Are you looking to hire a personal assistant? I'll carry your cups for you.

Do you guys ship out of state (is it legal to ship beer across state lines?)?

Yeah, I get that question a lot.

It's legal if you have the proper distribution license, which we don't. Aside from the occasional event, we sell everything we make in the brewery/restaurant.

Too bad. If I get back to Cincy next summer for a Cubs game I'll shoot up there. Looks like a pretty cool historic brewery.

You guys could easily do a beer swap. When I worked at the brewery I used to send a 12 pack to my buddy in Wisconsin and he’d send me a 12 of New Glarus.

We don't even can, though. All I could send would be a glass growler.

I'm working on a trip next summer that gets me to Indy and Bloomington, and I'd love to swing up to Cincy if it works with the Cubs. We'll see how it plays out.

Sometimes being right sucks. We’ve had a lot of trouble keeping GMs for the restaurant side of my brewery (4 this year), which is understandably leading to a significant leadership crisis in our kitchen and restaurant/bar. They’ve tried to solve this by essentially promoting everyone competent to management positions, which is fine, except that the criteria for replacing those lower positions seems to have been that the person is breathing. Our park/museum does a big event every night of the Christmas season, with upwards of 2000 people visiting depending on the night. My boss and I have been screaming to anyone that would listen, and many who wouldn’t, that the level of quality and professionalism in the kitchen and serving staff was going to destroy us when the Christmas event kicked in. Well, we were right. Wednesday was the kickoff, and the kitchen melted down immediately. Last night was our first weekend night, and the genius who made te schedule only put one manager and one bartender on duty, and they were the same motherfucking person! The kitchen couldn’t keep up, the servers fucked everything up, and we had to watch people getting meals comped, walking out, and now the bad online reviews are rolling in. It’s hard to find good servers. I know that. But at the very least train the people you hire to handle what we all knew was coming, and fucking be there to help. I’m so goddamn angry watching this happening. I can help bus and help pour beer, but I’m not trained on anything else, because I’ve got my own work to do. It’s embarrassing. And we told them it was coming.

That blows. Reminds me of one evening when I was serving a couple of years ago. It was around Spring break time and it was an unseasonably warm day and the restaurant was absolutely packed and totally understaffed. Total nightmare scenario. The kitchen was incredibly backed up, the bartender was flooded with orders...etc.

Very stressful!
