Acme UpdateJanuary 19, 2014
Just wrapped up the Cars, Kulture and Chaos 2 show.
We shared our booth with two ACME approved artists; Odd Rodney and Jon Arvizu. We rolled out to Queek Creek in the Unimog (Mobile Tap House) and our Drop Axle Ale was a big hit.
A great time was had by all. We brought the Saguaro Sabercats Robotics Team to the event for a little fund raising. With auto shop and other hands-on classes cut from school programs due to budget cuts, we decided to sponsor them this year in their competition. They design, construct and compete on a national level with these machines. They won the first year they competed and were a runner up last year. We think our money will be well invested on these kids.
We have finally perfected our Drop Axle Ale recipe and plan on sharing the goodness with the Bomb Squad at their annual BBQ on February 8th. We are currently working on our next recipe – Old Town HOP ROD. This should be a bold, bitter and bright ale. Send us a note if you would like to join us on a brew day.
The 1962 VW bus is getting closer. Color sanding and polishing as well as exterior trim and lights is being completed. Paint is looking great! Hope to have it on the road in a few weeks.
We have also be busy passing skills on to the next generation. Nothing is better than passing on knowledge that these kids will have forever. They have the MIG welder down, going to move to the TIG machine next. This girl has natural talent!
That’s it for now. Gotta get back to the shop.
