It started with Short's Pandemonium Pale Ale.
That was the "A-ha!" brew that introduced Brent Payeur to the world of craft beer. Seven years later, his relentless explorations of that world have him poised to take the ultimate plunge: opening his own brewery.
After long delays, construction is set to begin next week on Glasshouse Brewing Co., and Payeur couldn't be happier to finally begin making his dream a reality.
"We got our microbrewery license cleared by the feds over a year ago, but the city has been harder," says Payeur. "They had a problem with classifying our building and the number of parking spots and so on, but we have our building permit now and we're good to go."
