The Dispensary is our oak throne room.

This is where our beer goes to sit and condition for indeterminate lengths of time in one of our many oaken vessels. We realized the need for this tertiary space after trying to tend to a little over one hundred 60 gallon barrels at the Ferm. After a year or so, we realized that the physical constraints of the Ferm (wide open, but becoming more crowded every day) left us with very little space for engaging with these barrels. The answer? Blend and bottle away and move everything to a roomy off-site warehouse space. The Dispensary has allowed us to exponentially expand our oak program and now houses five new and used 60hl French oak foudres as well as a few hundred barrels/puncheons. The Dispensary also houses a fully functional lab, a climate controlled bottle conditioning room, an enormous drive in cold box, and a rotary bottling line (our old bottling line will now tend exclusively to our Brew Café magnum program).
