In 2013, New Belgium received a shipment of new foeders, doubling the total vessels in our wood cellar to a whopping 64. This is what we refer to as the great wood cellar expansion, which involved a lot of banging on wood, riding forklifts, and careful planning. With the last foeder finally filled earlier this year, we've been feeling pretty nostalgic, so we dug up some old photos of the reassembly process, and a time-lapse video. As you can see, assembling foeders isn't exactly a walk in the park, but we're pretty darn proud of how it turned out.
The foeders arrived stacked on pallets, waiting to be reassembled.
Each foeder's assembled one at a time with a team of helpers.
