We Got Tanked, With Photos to Prove It

As we keep huffing and puffing towards the last phase of the expansion, our gang was getting tanked all last week. Some of our lucky Friday and Saturday tour-goers even got to sneak a peek of it all going down (see what we did there!), while other Atlantans might of caught a glimpse of what looked like massive missiles rollin’ down I-75/85 during rush hour traffic Friday afternoon (whoops).

We’re happy to let y’all know that as of this past weekend, all 14 of our new 1,000-bbl fermentation and brite tanks (10 fermenters and 4 brites) are up and in place in our new tank farm…going out on a limb here and saying this might just be the coolest farm in midtown Atlanta!

We captured lots of photos and some footage during the process. Feel free to browse on through our Flickr album to see it all in action, or click any of the pics in this post to link over. Special shout out to Chris Rank with Rank Studios for some of these awesome shots.

Now for some dank  facts about the tanks: Each of those tanks can hold up to 2,000 kegs which is nearly 13,780 cases and 330,720 bottles of beer. Multiply that by 14 tanks and that’s 28,000 kegs, 192,920 cases and 4,63,080 bottles of beer folks…just about enough sweet SweetWater nectar to fill an Olympic swimming pool.  Wonder if Michael Phelps wants to swim through it to check for us since he’s now retired (and we all know how much he loves the 420)!

Hoping to get the finishing touches on the brew house done this fall, got some grand brews in store to christen the new girl.  Lean back, turn up some Phish and enjoy the visuals.
