Help us go BIG!

We are in the final days of a Community Sourced Capital fundraising campaign to help us move into a larger location and get bigger equipment! We’ll have more on the big move later. Unlike Kickstarter, when you contribute to us via Community Sourced Capital, you are making a loan. In other words, you get your money back.

What do we need the money for? For the past 3 years, we have hobbled together a brewery using a little ingenuity, resourcefulness, and sheer brute force. Well, that can only get you so far. We are at the point where we need to go big or go home. We have gone from doing 5 and 10 gallon batches to doing 60 gallon batches. In order to get to the next level, we need to do 465 gallon batches – a 15 barrel system. These systems cans cost $200-$300K. Not cheap. But they are made out of beautiful stainless steel!

So, we are gathering all the resources we can pull together and hope that you can help out. The money that we put together will then be taken to our bank to be used as leverage for getting a Small Business Administration loan. Next, our funds and the SBA loan together will be leveraged for a special loan offered through the City of Tacoma for businesses just like ours.

It’s a big dream, but we’re not doing small things.

Please help us out by sharing our Community Sourced Capital fundraising page with your friends and if you are able to, make a small contribution to our campaign. The loans start out at $50 and go to $1,000. If you would like to make a loan larger than $1,000, please contact me directly.

Thank you for your support!
