30 Word Thursdays: Rahr



Augurs and leaded glass host a century's collection of dust and rust.
Hollow footsteps on metal gantries echo from aged cement walls.
A lone yellow pane gazes back, sparking intrigue.


This week's addition to 30 Word Thursdays comes from a recent tour of Rahr Malting in Shakopee, Minnesota.  Rahr has been around since 1847 and on this tour we were able to visit some of the oldest areas of the facility.  This is one of the biggest malting facilities in the world and is responsible for malting the grain used in many of the great beers that I often post about in this blog.  Thanks to the folks at Rahr and BSG for hosting us!  Make sure to check out the other entries to 30 Word Thursdays at the Treasures Found Blog Here.

A very intriguing photo. I'll bet that was a very interesting tour from seeing this photo. I might have to add this to my long list of places I want to see.

Intrigue for sure! I love the beauty of old implements and tools. A true testament to the quality of those that made them that they are standing the test of time. Thanks for joining the 30 Words Challenge! Enjoy the day! Erin
