The rain. It seems to never want to stop. I am not complaining mind you because I would much rather have it rain than snow, plus I made an promise to myself (ok, I begged and pleaded with nature) to not complain about the summer weather no matter what it was as long as winter ended; but it would be nice to come to work every once in a while and not look like a drowned rat (I ride a bicycle). The only good thing about the rain and mild temperatures (aside from it not being snow) that I can say is that it hasn’t been as awful in the warehouse so far this summer as it was last year. You see our press operators, rewinders and shipping personnel work hard to make sure our customers labels are done correctly and on time no matter what the weather outside is, or how it affects the comfort level in the warehouse. In the summer they sweat, drink lots of water and eat popsicles to stay hydrated and in the winter they put on a hoodie if it happens to be a little cooler in the warehouse, whatever it takes to get the job done. That’s the kind of dedication you can expect from us; through sweltering heat, rain, or freezing conditions we will get your labels done and out the door to you; sort of like the post office but we don’t have uniforms.
This weekend I will be attending the 2015 Harpoon Championships of New England BBQ at Harpoon Brewery in Windsor, VT. I am beyond excited, because as you may have realized, I love food. Harpoon is unfortunately not one of our customers (yet) but I am ever the optimist so I hold out hope that someday we will make something that graces their bottles or kegs or anything else for that matter. I am hoping to also have the opportunity while we are down there to stop into one of our customers, Silo Brewery (American Crafted Spirits) and touring their facility and just checking in to see them if only to see our labels on their bottles, because they are pretty sweet. It’s also handy because Vermont Farmstead Cheese is also right there and I might see about sneaking down there so I can get some of my one true love, cheese.
As always I encourage you to check out any food festivals that are going on in your area because they can be pretty awesome and a lot of the time you stumble upon something you can’t live without after trying. And if you are stumbling around the internet make sure to check out:
