That's me next to the Starbucks...

As you can hopefully see, that's my brew to the far right. Sure, Starbucks(tm) and Manhattan Special(tm) have me beat, but it's not a bad start!

This particular display happens to be in Iron Tomato in White Plains. It's been selling pretty well there, and we haven't decided for sure yet whether it fits best in the ready-to-drink section or the cooler with all the milk and stuff.

We're trying it here for the time being, and only time will tell.

The new Luke's Brew website...

Check it out!

I taught myself a bit of web design and built a new site. Enjoy! This will be the new main landing site, and visitors will have the option to be directed to the blog here.

The idea was to make it easier for first timers to get an idea of what Luke's Brew is, where to get it, and how to reach me.

Below is a snapshot of what the site looks like. Basically I made everything by hand: scissors, tape, stapler, markers, paper, cardboard, a scanner, and a lot of hours of learning how to turn it all into a website. Anyway, I think it came out looking kinda neat.

Feedback appreciated as always....

New bottle shipment: 900 bottles crammed into my tiny car

I think if I bought one more case I would've needed a second trip.

Anyway, business can now officially resume now that I have all my bottles, or at least so I thought. Just as I was about to leave, a very nice employee reminded me that my bottle caps hadn't been shipped. Here I was, merrily leaving, planning my weekend of bottling, forgetting the simple fact that I had no caps. Now, whether or not you've ever bottled coffee before, I'm sure you can understand the importance of caps in any bottling business. I can only imagine the reactions I would get if I started delivering capless bottles to all of my customers. Fortunately the store had some extra bags of caps, which I promptly purchased and went on my way.

That's what this whole business thing has been about: making silly mistakes and trying to learn fast and not repeat them. Anyway, my weekend can now go as planned, and I will resume churning out bottles as normal.

P.S. I plan on posting a short "How it's made" video in the next few days, because I think people might get a kick out of seeing just what goes into each and every bottle of Luke's Brew. Keep checking back.
