Occupation: Owners, Urban Growler Brewing (2325 Endicott St., St. Paul)
When will Urban Growler open to the public?
Loch: We’re targeting early spring. We’ve ordered our equipment, and now we’re waiting for it to be manufactured and delivered.
Pavlak: It takes four months to make the equipment, so we’re at the mercy of that.
Loch: It is a growth industry, and most of the equipment is custom made. It’s very expensive, so it’s not like there are 50 tanks sitting on the shelf.
Pavlak: We have a lot of vertical space, 26-foot ceilings, so they’re designing the tanks so they can be stacked, keeping growth in mind.
When you were little, what did you want to be when you grew up?
