About this project

We are opening our doors this summer to give you unique brews that are formed from a truly artisan craft. We will work tirelessly to create brilliantly tasty artisan ales - good is not good enough. We fully understand that discerning beer drinkers have numerous options when it comes to imbibing a delicious brew, and we will work to make each one of our brews Brilliantly Tasty. Our ales and lagers will cover a wide spectrum of traditional and unusual styles.   

You may have already tried our beers. As homebrewers, we were the People’s Choice First Place recipient in the PNA Winter Beer Taste in 2010 with our Roasted Rye PA, and in the fall of 2011 our Best of Show American Brown Rye was brewed by Anacortes Brewery and served in a number of Seattle locations. Our co-founder and brewer Adam is an award winning homebrewer with a vast collection of brews he can’t wait for you to enjoy. His British roots and love of American craft beers create a unique fusion between British and American styles.

Our taproom and brewery is located at 1406 NW 53rd St, Suite 1A, Seattle, WA. We're working to open our doors this summer - hopefully in June. Our creations will be found at the select bar, but primarily served in our own taproom. This will enable us to offer you a wide and ever-changing variety of exciting new brews.  We can even have weeks where every one of our 6 to 8 taps is a certain style - imagine an IPA week, or stout week, or Imperial week. Focusing on our taproom will allow us to get immediate, direct feedback from you on our creations. It will allow us to make sure that you get our brews as fresh as possible, and exactly how we want to present them.  We are committed to operating with the highest integrity, respecting our environment and understanding our responsibilities to the community.

We love Kickstarter because of the way it enables people to become part of a company's journey before it's even begun. That's why we have launched this campaign - to ask you to help us open our doors, and become part of Reuben's Brews. In return, we're going to offer some great incentives - from t-shirts and drinking vessels to unique experiences in the brewery. 

We are asking for your support to help us achieve our dream. Join us on our journey at this early stage, support local artisan craft brewing, and enjoy the rewards on offer. The money we raise will help us get started on this exciting adventure!

Please help us, and follow these easy steps:

1. CREATE a Kickstarter account. It's simple, all it takes is an email and a password.

2. SIGN IN at - if you already have an account, you're all set. If not, no sweat, it is an easy set-up as well.

3. PLEDGE at whatever level you like! Your card will only be charged should we reach our full goal. 

-SHARE this with your friends, family, coworkers, neighbors, and whoever else crosses your path!

Thanks in advance for your support and help. We look forward to you joining us on our journey! And we will be privileged to serve our brilliantly tasty artisan ales to you in 2012!

Adam and grace
