When I moved West almost four years ago, my aim was to change my life and finally become a full-time entrepreneur. Little did I know how my life would change and that the plan I originally had would not end up being what was to be. Instead, I started writing and blogging and adventuring like I’d always wanted to, and I started actually pursuing my true passions and learning about what I truly was meant for. In the end, I listened and went with what was getting me truly stoked and what made me truly happy. So, with that said, the road has not been as I thought it would be. It actually has been better! And, even though, I didn’t meet my three-year deadline of starting my own business full-time, I have been consulting and have learned a shit ton about what I want, don’t want, and have been actually living. Living boldly and adventureously and creating a life worth talking about and sharing, to encourage others to go after what they really want and the life they are meant to live!
This next chapter in my life all started in the Fall of 2015, when I opened my heart and my mind to a new relationship, said ‘no’ to fear and reverting back to my old ways, and said yes to accepting help and going for it! So what is this big-ass beery announcement? Well, it combines all my passions and my entrepreneurial dreams, and hopefully it brings my three-year deadline to four-year finish-line, and well, wait, I have to create a little suspense, right?
Oh hell, no I don’t! Here goes nothing….I’m opening a craft-beer taphouse in Vancouver, Washington!!!!
Can you believe it? I can barely believe it. Okay, wait, I can believe it because this shit is starting to get real, yo!!! I’m opening my taphouse with my business partner and my love dude, Mike Bolt, and we are going to be opening we hope before Summer 2017. This is something we have been working on for quite some time and have finally secured a location. Our place will be located on the east side of Vancouver, Washington off of Mill Plain Blvd and Chkalov. We have lots of work to still do…like final permitting, demo, construction, and well, almost everything, but we are stoked and wanted to shout it from the rooftops!
There you have it. My big-ass beery announcement! This is definitely big. This will make or break me, and us. We are going “ALL-IN.” We are going be the owners and bartenders and marketers and bathroom cleaners, beer-buyers, and everything in between. We can’t wait to be able to share more as soon as we have more to share. In the meantime though, I will leave with our name….drumroll, please, Final Draft Taphouse! Oh wait, but you got that up there already! Ha! Check out our website and find us on Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook! Also, if you would like to get in the know before others, sign up for news and updates via email as we gear up to open our doors!
Oh, and you may be wondering what does that mean for ABVGirl and my site? Well, I have yet to figure that out exactly, but I think it will only enhance things. I will be figuring that out more as the planning goes on, but I think I have a way to incorporate it all. So, stay tuned!
And let me know what you think? After all, I’m hoping that many of you will come and visit Final Draft Taphouse once we are open!?!
