The first batch of Field Beer went really quickly, especially the bottles. All 32 cases that we packaged were on shelves of local bottle shops within two days! Since we have built our own bottling system, we fill, cap, clean, and label each bottle by hand. It’s a process we love to do, but it takes a tremendous amount of time, energy, and more people than we currently employ to do at larger scales. However, each time we use the bottling rig, we make small improvements to the process and the equipment itself that will enable us to release more bottles with each batch. Already on our second batch we have doubled the number of cases we produced and expanded the area in which we are selling them. We hope to continue this trend and have bottles available wherever they are wanted.
This Friday, we will release the second batch of Field Beer in bottles. Some stores may have both bottles on their shelves, some may only have received one or the other. Each bottle is labeled so that you can determine which batch you are drinking.
Moving forward we’ll announce the stores that have reserved cases so you can know where to go in a more organized and relaxed manner right off the bat.
