Beerhouse Fourways Roof Wetting.
On Thursday 15th May we had a Roof Wetting Party for Beerhouse Fourways. We had a party on site before we start construction on the new Beerhouse. Influential Jozi beer people, media, suppliers, builders, potential investors, new neighbours, friends and family made up a jolly group of beer lovers. Traditionally a roof wetting function or ritual involves wetting of the actual roof. This is done to check that the new roof is properly sealed off from the elements. At our roof wetting we did more of an internal wetting and stress test to the liver, as the building is already built and we just wanted to celebrate once before we begin the re-building and shopfitting of our premises.
Beer suppliers and Breweries were very forthcoming with donations of delicious beer. A short presentation on the Beerhouse concept and what we aim to achieve was followed by a beautifully cooked lamb spit roast. Our guest really took our Beerhouse building site and there is a lot of enthusiasm towards us setting up a house full of beer in Jozi.
Sadly we have to close the doors again after the party and get our overalls on and load up with some elbow grease and get stuck into transforming the site into a beautiful experience of the senses. We cant wait to open and share our love for beer with everyone in the place of gold.
Until then Stay Thirsty/ Stay Curious.
