Slow and steady wins the race. Rockford Brewing Co. partners are still aiming for a late summer opening of their signature microbrewery in the heart of downtown Rockford. The three tortoises Jeff Sheehan, Seth Rivard, and Brien Dews are crossing every ‘T’ and dotting every ‘i’ in order to achieve an authentic Northwoods Bavarian lodge look. Pictured is Rivard sanding newly erected timbers in what will be the “Public House”. The surface is being sanded in preparation for the installation of the bar’s countertop. The partners encourage everyone, whenever in town, to window-gawk their progress or, if the door is open, come inside and see for themselves. Rivard is probably wishing he had a stein in his hand and was proposing a toast the likes of, “This one’s for you – West Michigan!”
