Signs, signs, everywhere there are signs. Not really, but there are now two.
Our friend Graham made this along with the “A Civil Life” sign now hanging inside. Graham came to us a few months back and had a few things he was willing to part with and we are thankful for this nice addition.
I have found it humorous lately that our pub business keeps growing and we still don’t have an exterior sign or a phone number. My previous business had existed for around 7 years by the time I sold it without an exterior sign and from our first two months in business all signs (notice word choice) point to not actually needing one. But one is in the works (sort of) because honestly a brewery needs a sign..just like a human needs a theme song. Dylan has been working fervently on an ongoing smoke signal and as soon as we have it perfected and approved by the St. Louis Fire Department we will install it on the roof. In all honesty, Chris our resident painter is going to paint it on the front of the building.
If you have been reading this blog, you have realized that I have been unable to keep up with a blog post on each of the first 100 days. This is because we are a new business and we do not have a money tree. I hadn’t realized how expensive it was going to be to decorate. I have been spending most of the money coming in on purchasing items to put on the walls and the rest of it has been invested in other city bars.
Let me digress for a bit. In my mind and the odd world in which I exist, I quite often believe the best way to order a beer is to state, “I would like to invest my money in a (enter name here~ extra kudos if you enter Civil Life.)” And the most Civil way to ask someone for a drink is to state, “I would like to invite you for a drink.” Thanks to Marek the peregrino for that line.
Meanwhile back at the brewery. So with great honor, Dylan installed our “BEER” sign over our serving window on the main walkway. So just in case you didn’t know. We make the beer we serve in the pub we built.
Cheers and happy drinking!
Hello earthlings. I have been sent here to open a brewery. I hope you have time over the next year to check in from time to time and see our progress (or lack there of at times).
