This week, Scallywag Brewing took a some important administrative steps to move forward in this crazy fever-dream we've taken on.
1. Got our updated logos back from the awesome designer. She did an amazing job! See the Facebook post for details and thank you.
2. Officially joined the Illinois Craft Brewers Guild as an Associate Brewery. An Associate Brewery is any brewer that doesn't meet the criteria of active craft brewery that is producing product for sale. This includes larger breweries (i.e. Lagunitas), breweries that have not yet gotten their own license and facilities (like the amazing Around the Bend), and in-planning breweries (like your favorite, Scallywag). Joining the guild will give us an additional avenue to support Illinois brewing and to connect and get advice from even more brewers in the area.
3. The trademark application has officially been filed. This is something I have been slacking on for quite awhile now, and really should have done last year. While it does take awhile to run through the system and become fully owned by us, just having the filing number makes it harder for us to lose the name Scallywag.
Movement is still slow and steady, but definitely going in the right direction!
