The Road to Opening
Over the last two months a lot has been happening at our 20th and Lawrence location. We’ve poured floors, assembled a very large walk in cooler, and received and installed our brand spankin’ new 10 barrel system built by JV Northwest in Canby, Oregon. For all those peeking through our windows waiting to see what we have in store for our patrons, here is a quick snapshot of what we have been up to.
Over the past few weeks, head brewer and co-owner Wayne Burns has been brewing a variety of craft beers. Upon opening we will offer a smooth session Saison, a higher ABV Saison, a Scotch Ale, a Belgo American Black IPA, an American IPA, and an Old Ale. With over 20 years of brewing experience, we are confident in Wayne’s ability to brew a beer you’ll smile about.
If the beers alone don’t draw you in, hopefully our space will. With a lot of hard work from our construction group and a few local craftsman, our brewhouse is an extremely inviting place to land after your time in the mountains or at work.
We were fortunate to work with local craftsman Scott Friedman of Gitane Workshop who built and installed our reclaimed barn wood/tractor-trailer flooring bar. It was a massive job which Scott executed perfectly.
John Mandl of ATG-Woodworking did an amazing job building all of our brewhouse slab table-tops. He used Colorado beetle-kill wood and torched our logo into the tops using a custom steel stencil.
We also had our Graphic Designer, Jon Ketchum fabricate two very large, water-jet cut steel exterior signs and 10 custom-made, ice axe tap handles with his industrial design partner Jacob Bouchard. Together they built some amazing original assets that truly help further our brand as mountaineers and beer enthusiasts.
We still aren’t ready to announce an official open date but when our doors do open, know that Jagged Mountain is a great new location to sample some very delicious beer.
