- As promised 🖤
- Our first official food purchase comes via @bernierfarms. We’re not open yet but these slicers will be processed, jarred and put to sleep for some winter braises. #🍅party
- A neighbor popped their head in the other day, dropped their jaw😱at our paint work and said “so scary.” . Nothin but smiles and a bit of child labor around here😊😎😁🍻
- Last year we participated in the annual May Day rib cook-off and we’re doing it again this year. This Sunday 5/5 at the Hoffman Grove Picnic Grounds in Geyserville. Super family friendly event with lots of activities for kids, as well as music, food and drinks. North Bay friends come out! Swipe👉🏼for more details.
- Rubs for the ribs. This year’s rib cook-off falls on Cinco de Mayo so we’re going to add some Mexican flavors to a few of our racks. Might even bring some tortillas. And hot sauce. Might even pull some meat off and make you a taco. Secret word is #taco so come by our booth and say hi.
- Our custom oven and exhaust system were delivered this week😉
- 1/3. For ten years prior to us moving in, the space here was a wine tasting room operated by our friends at Route 128 Vineyards. Along with making thoughtful, award-winning wines these folks were also quite skilled in other crafts... . . The underside of the bar is lined with various oak barrel staves. In time, we’ll be serving our barrel-aged beers at the pub so you can saddle up, hang your hoodie and make some new friends. #sonomacounty #craftbeer #geyserville
- We’re making our pub tables from Douglas Fir that we foraged from behind a barn where we lived in Sebastopol (pics 4 and 5). We moved them to our friends’ wood shop so they would remain dry through the winter. This week, we were in Petaluma @heritage_salvage picking up some final boards to round things out. They happened to have stacks and stacks (pic 1) of Fir from an old horse stable that were the same dimensions as the original wood from Sebastopol 🙌🏼. Most were in pretty bad shape but after a determined search we found what we needed. The boards were then scanned for nails that we yanked in preparation for planing. There were quite a few gnarly ones!🔨💪🏼 The wood will sit for a few weeks to dry a bit before the next steps... Here’s to all the conversations, food and pints that will be shared over them🍻#sonomacounty #craftbeer #geyserville #eatlocal #alesandeats
- 2/3. For ten years prior to us moving in, the space here was a wine tasting room operated by our friends at Route 128 Vineyards. Along with making thoughtful, award-winning wines these folks were also quite skilled in other crafts... . . The bar top is one continuous piece of concrete that was framed and poured in place. No sections. They then sifted out loads of Russian River sand until they got over 10lbs of a pebble size they were happy with. Scattered it over the wet concrete, troweled, and kept the room cool to slow the curing process in an effort to avoid any cracks. Then wet sanded for 40 hours. We’re super fortunate to have this beast of a bar already in place and can’t wait to serve beers and food on it! #sonomacounty #craftbeer #geyserville #eatlocal
- 3/3. For ten years prior to us moving in, the space here was a wine tasting room operated by our friends at Route 128 Vineyards. Along with making thoughtful, award-winning wines these folks were also quite skilled in other crafts... . . The paneling along the walls is old growth redwood from a pre-prohibition 20,000 gallon gravity wine tank. The darker panels were on the inside of the tank and are heavily textured from naturally occurring “wine diamonds”, or tartrates. Wine diamonds form when potassium and tartaric acid (both found in grapes) combine. Potassium bitartrate is the same thing as cream of tartar which is used as a stand alone ingredient in baking and found in baking powder. The redwood panels being exposed to the acidic tartrates in the wine created the dark and textured look. A big thank you to Pete and Lorna Opatz of Route 128 for sharing these details that built the aesthetic of their tasting room and we’re stoked to carry these stories on in our brew pub! #sonomacounty #geyserville #craftbeer
- Winemaker and brewer discussing glycol-lined concrete open top fermenters. Thanks @zialenawinery for inviting us over and for the hospitality and tour. We’re looking forward to the Block Party on the 17th! #neighbors #geyserville #sonomacounty #wine #craftbeer
- Narrowing it down. We’ll have a new look by the end of the day. #brewpub #buildout #geyserville #sonomacounty #alesandeats
The idea for Corner Project started many years ago when Tom and Chris were in their late teens. The two brothers envisioned opening a local establishment where people of all walks of life would come together to enjoy a beverage and a bite to eat. Both went off to college to study subjects that had little to do with their dreams of opening their establishment.
In 2005, Tom left a career in social work to attend culinary school and a few years later, Chris began brewing beer on his stovetop. In early 2017 the two of them revisited their dream in a more serious mindset and brought the concept of Corner Project to fruition.
