Final Construction Update

Over the past few weeks, we’ve had all sorts of crews working in the space.  We installed a walk-in cooler…then took it out and installed a bigger one (that’s a story for another day).  The bar has been built.  Signs are up on the front of the building and inside.  The lights are hung.  The bathrooms are functional.  The walls have been painted.  The floors have been repaired and cleaned.  The draft system is in place.

Over the course of the long weekend, we’ve been putting some finishing touches on a few things and getting the store in ship shape for the grand opening.  Then, once we pass all of our inspections early next week, we’ll move in the bar stools, tables, chairs, and shelves, and start ordering some beer!

As you can tell from the photos below, things are getting REALLY close.  However, we still have inspections to pass and inventory to be done, but we are finally comfortable enough to announce our grand opening plans for August 13 – 20!

    Just wanted to offer everyone at the Glass Jug a really hearty congratulations on a job well done! We recently completed an 18 month restoration of our hotel in Asheville, and we understand just how tough it can be to see these types of projects all the way through successfully.
