We are happy to announce our Grand Opening Weekend!
Saturday Nov 19th and Sunday Nov 20th. 11am to 8:30pm both days.
We have received all permits, brewed some inaugural batches, and are ready to open the doors to our taproom. Thank you all for your patience, we cannot wait to share with you and serve this thirsty community!
When you undertake the buildout of a brewery, it can be quite an ordeal to say the least. I think it may not be well understood how much planning and coordination and frankly, exposure to risk it is trying to bring beer to market can be. As previously noted, we started writing a business plan 3 years ago, started looking for property, and began scrounging money from our closest friends and family.
Gunwhale is proud to announce we are getting very close to opening, and we are hiring beer servers for our taproom. Please share with all of your supremely talented friends or apply yourself! For more info, click here.
Many of you have been following along, and if you follow other similar start-ups, it becomes painfully clear that the endeavor of starting a brewery is a squirrelly one. Lawyers, architects, permitting, beer research (an unholy duty we have accepted), and back to more lawyers again. Rinse, repeat. We appreciate your patience and are grateful for your anticipation. But we do owe you an update on when you're going get to taste these suds that will undoubtedly blow the barn doors off. So here it is...
Gunwhale Ales is seeking an experienced brewer to join our team early on, where they can make a significant contribution towards the success of the brewery. We have spent a lot of time planning and developing a brand that will make a splash on the Southern California brewing scene. But this is a quick timeline, and for this position of leadership we are offering a lot of creative freedom.
Sometimes these things start as lonely ripple in the stretch of an open sea...slowly gathering steam and momentum. We hope it becomes a wave, and we need you all to add the force behind us. This project has been a labor of love, even as we are months from opening. It has been 2 years already of work, brewing recipes, learning, and imbibing to get us to this point.....
