I am checking in this month from gorgeous Williamsburg, Virginia. Pearly, Mariel and I will be here for the next few weeks soaking up as much information as we can about the supply side of the company. The Williamsburg brewery is known as the “Can Do” Brewery because it takes every challenge thrown its way head on. One of these challenges is brewing 48 different brands of beer, making brewing and packaging logistics very complex. We spent the past week learning the in and outs of the brewing process at the Williamsburg brewery. We did everything from joining in daily taste testing, led by brewmaster Dan Westmoreland, to cleaning out the beach wood chip tanks used to help perfect Budweiser and Bud Light.
All geared up to down & dirty in the chip tanks!!
We will spend the coming weeks taking a closer look at utilities, operations, and maintenance at the Williamsburg brewery. We will also be participating in Be(er) Responsible Day this Friday as well as helping out with various lean projects going on at the brewery. For future updates from the Williamsburg brewery, stay tuned for Mariel and Pearly’s posts coming early October!!
