Kirby Nelson leaves Capital Brewery

Industry News by PHISHPOND417

This is crazy but I give Kirby a ton of credit for making this leap. I know Kirby and have met Carl a couple times before. It's pretty bold to start up a brewery this size right away but Carl's a really smart business man. He must have something incredible up his sleeves. Good luck to both of them!

Of Kirby, "He became known for his German-style lagers..." No kidding! Capital's Doppelbocks are all homeruns. The bocks, Viennas and others are all solid too. Can't wait to try some MORE new Wisconsin beers...[:D] [img]http://img2.imagesbn.com/images/176980000/176982547.JPG[/img] More fuel for the Wisconsin Beer Mafia.

The nearest Bud plant allowed employees to drink beer on tap in the lunch room, but problems due to that policy caused them to revoke it. [:(] The nearest Miller plant (long since gone) instead provided their workers with a generous allotment of beer to take home each month. As a contractor employee I saw a number of Miller workers staggering along the beer lines from their on-the-job consumption...especially on weekend shifts. [:0]

I'd say it's a good thing...that I'm accustomed to NOT drinking beer when I'm on company time or a break/lunch break. I live and work in this building, and I get an hour for lunch every work day...in my own apartment or outside the facility. Afterwards, I'm then free to imbibe, or not. ;) Btw...Many are still out of work due to COVID. I'm grateful that I was able to continue in my current venue uninterrupted, altho' with masks and distancing. Disinfecting hand surfaces is a "new" responsibility during the pandemic, but it SEEMS like it has been for a long while... :I
