This post is the first installment in our "what is that" series. It should be a long series, because there are a ton of things in a brewery that would make the average joe say, what is that.
So the answer is, it's the best coffee you've never had. It's coffee from Rise Up Coffee, the best coffee on the Eastern Shore and honestly the best I've ever had. And I like coffee (I really like coffee). Tim and his crew at Rise Up do an incredible job, and we're so lucky to be making beer with coffee this good. I've made coffee beers in the past (usually from that ubiquitous Seattle-based coffee chain) and it's no contest- Rise Up rules.
So, the coffee- it's cold steeping (keeps it less harsh and smoother), waiting to be blended with our Lucky 7 Porter as a special treat for folks visiting our tasting room in the next couple of weeks or stopping by our table at the St. Michaels Food and Wine fest next weekend. That's the only way anyone can get it- except Tim, who has a growler waiting for him.

We had our new signs put up last week, and they're looking good. But just prior to the removal of the old signs ("Delmar Food Rite" or something like that) we noticed that someone had left a calling card in the "e" of "Delmar". I know it couldn't be any of the gang over at Dogfish, as they are too busy ramping up expansion plans. So who could it be? We'll just have to get to the bottom of this little mystery...

Progress continues on the brewing front- Primal Pale, Exile ESB and Lucky 7 are all in the tanks and fermenting away. Our signs are up (more on that later), the place is straightened up and everything looks like we'll be rolling out kegs in a couple of weeks. I'm off to snap pictures of the new signs for everyone.
