Quick Mad Fox Update

Time for another update.  It has been an extremely busy time during the Holidays trying to be with family and keeping it all together.

First, we received all the Contractor Bids on December 18th and upon review and much analysis we have awarded the project to UniWest Construction who are located in Falls Church as well.  UniWest did a fantastic job of drilling down on the drawings, filling in gaps and asking the hard questions necessary to do a thorough and complete bid.  Since hiring them they have worked with us to delve deeper into what is necessary for Mad Fox to come in at or under budget while still in a Pre Construction arrangement.

Next, we have a contract for the brewing system that was signed December 10th and we will be working with a new built system from Premier Stainless Systems who are based out of San Marcos, California.  For those who are interested, this is the very same manufacturer that built the entire brewery for Blue Mountain Brewery in Afton, Virginia and fabricated some fermenters for Roanoke Railhouse Brewery as well.  Our brewery should be delivered in 14 to 16 weeks and we will have an invite go out for the day she arrives (any suggestions on naming her?).

I know there have been e-mails sent from the Mad Fox newsletter, the City Paper named Mad Fox one of the five most influential beer happenings of the year.

And from our friends at The Falls Church News Press naming Mad Fox as an economic magnet that will help drive economic revitalization in Falls Church.

We have also received our go ahead from the Health Department on our architectural drawings and are anxiously awaiting the City of Falls Church Building Inspectors permit to be issued any day now so we can start construction.  The Landlord and UniWest have their pre Construction meeting this week to nail down the how and why of building in the Spectrum location and I cannot wait to actually have a table and chair at Mad Fox to I can have an “office” so to speak.
