Tim Tucker is the poor sucker who has to orchestrate the brewery, the restaurant/pub, distribution, sales, etc. He notes that they are expanding their fermentation capacity by 100 bbls to try and keep up with demand, as they're now distributing their beer in Portland.

Or at least they were, until they shut down their brewery in 2006.

      Dark dark red. Dense brownish head. Intensely roasty aroma, chocolatey and malty. Medium body, fizzy. Rich chocolate flavor, with lots of malt. Some diacetyl along with some hop flavor in the big roasty finish. Actually quite a bit of diacetyl.
