Our First Little Setback...

Well. Due to an estate agent who was a little less than forthcoming, we seem to no longer have a location for the brewery. Bummer. However, I'm very glad that this has happened now and that we can move forward with the full support of our friends in Cobourg in finding our new home.

It does beg the question, what about the name of the brewery? Isn't it pretty location specific? Umm. Maybe. Let's see what the next week or so holds and we'll get it figured out.

At the end of the day, we are still several weeks away from taking delivery of our brewing equipment, so there really isn't a huge panic and it shouldn't do too much to derail the time lines.

Wish me luck as I head east to scour the town for a new and better home for Cobourg's Nano.



  1. Sean,

    Are you going ahead with this somewhere else? I saw the For Sale sign up on the building. Was it zoned incorrectly?

    It will be pretty exciting to have a nano in Cobourg.


    1. Hi Phil,
      Thanks for your support! The zoning was fine and the Town was very enthusiastic about our intent to gentrify and repurpose that location. However, the owner had a last minute change of heart and decided to go in another direction. Needless to say, I was a bit chagrined initially. However, we already have a shortlist of options in the same area and I am hopeful that we will have an announcement coming soon.

      Cobourg deserves and will have their own local beer. Thanks again for the support and please tell a friend!

      Cheers, Sean
