sustainably good

  In my former life at Campbell, my proudest moment was receiving a company-wide award for creating a best-in-class sustainable advertising production process.  So there is no doubt that I would continue to focus on sustainability when I opened my own business.  I sum it up this way – sustainable practices are not only the

prepping for grand opening

Things are Happening at Zed’s Beer! Today marks one week since I announced the date for our grand opening — 9/9/17 in case you missed the news! And since then, it’s been nonstop action. Here’s just a sampling of what’s going on: First and foremost, it’s all about the beer. We’ve just brewed our 10th

Momentum continues!!

(Heads up that all e-mail subscribers will receive a second e-mail this week regarding Marlton Day and your first chance to buy some Zed’s Beer Swag!!!) It seem like every single update we release could start with “so much has happened but we still don’t have an opening date” and this one is no exception!

Start up brewery – the snowball starts rolling!!

We’re a little bit behind in our blogging ventures, but not because we don’t love writing about this process – it’s just that we got a little bit of wind back in our sails, and we’ve (finally) been able to get sweaty and dirty again putting in our sweat equity.   So here’s all the

start up brewery–I’m a fan of bathrooms

I’m a fan of bathrooms.  I know that might sound controversial, but I don’t think that I’m going out on a limb by saying that a bathroom is the kind of feature that I’ve gotten used to finding in a building.  Scholars say that bathrooms in some form or another have been around since 3000BC.

Start Up Brewery–decisions in this election year

It’s fascinating to me the things that I take into consideration while putting together the brewery.  So while I’m waiting for the last lease negotiations to finish up (which should be ANY DAY), I’m confronted with something I haven’t decided is an issue, though with all the rhetoric during this election year it might be:

Start up Brewery decisions I CAN share

So I’m fairly confident that I’ll be able to announce that I’ve signed the lease for my preferred location shortly!  This means that shortly I’ll be able to provide the township and actual location of Bado Brewing/Zed’s Beer.  And that also means that shortly I’ll be abel to give a guesstimate as to when I’ll

Start up brewery a broad apology

So I’m sure that I’ve done it through my life—promised someone that I would get back in touch with them or return a call or provide some piece of information and never did.  And while I like to think that I’ve never done it out of spite, even those who never received follow up through

Start-up brewery: brew kettle blues

Got a little bit of frustrating news earlier in April that I’m doing my best to mitigate. For background, Bado Brewing, LLC and Zed’s Beer will be a nano brewery producing approximately 300 barrels (300BBL) of beer a year.  I’ll be doing this through an electric 3BBL system: 4BBL Brew Kettle w/whirlpool, 3BBL Hot Liquor
