With all the talk about making changes in 2018, Crux Fermentation Project didn't want to be left out of the discussion. Announced this past Tuesday, the brewery has announced the following.
The taproom is getting a much-needed expansion.
Begining this year, after years ignoring the cramped conditions guests experienced (especially during the fall/winter months), the brewery is doubling indoor capacity, quadruple the bathroom accommodations, as well as a few yet to be announced changes. Look for signs reading everything from 'bless this mess' to 'under construction' until shortly before Summer get's interesting.
Say hello to your new General Manager of Sales, Mike Foy.
Besides giving the brewery and taproom a facelift, the ownership has promoted Mike Foy to the role of General Manager of Sales. If you're a taproom or restaurant owner and the name sounds familiar, then you've no doubt worked with him during his days as Oregon Zone Manager for Deschutes Brewery. Congrats to Mike on the new gig and here's hoping more places get more beer than 2017.
A sample of what else is coming.
Look for announcements in the near future associated with the return of Freakcake - barrel-aged Oud Bruin, bottling of Triplecross Belgian-style Tripel, and promotion of Play Wave Northwest-style Pale Ale to year-round availability.
