WHO IS GILLETTE BREWING COMPANY?
Gillette Brewing Company is a community oriented craft beer brewery and taproom located in Gillette, Wyoming. The taproom will be located on the main floor of the historic downtown Gillette Post Office building with the brewing operation located in the basement. Built in 1935 as part of the Public Works Administration it holds the distinction of being the only building in Gillette on the National Registry of Historic places and is the perfect atmosphere for a community craft brewery.
Gillette Brewing Company will be a family oriented and smoke free brewery for all to enjoy. It will be where the community can come together to share something unique made by the hands of your friends and neighbors.
How is the Project coming?
We have secured lease of the building and the current occupants are in the process of moving to their new location. Our custom 7 barrel brewing system is on order and is being built as we speak. We have been conditionally approved by the City and State for our microbrewery permit and have received Federal approval. We plan to begin building renovations in April which include renovation of both the main floor taproom area along with the basement brewing area.
Our two brewers/owners, Nate Hardy and Tom Gorton, are busy putting the finishing touches on beers they have been developing from many years experience brewing as a hobby. Beer tasting events have begun to introduce our beers to the public.
We are planning an early May opening to serve the Gillette area barring any unforseen events. Our owner group is made up of six average working guys with a dream to bring Gillette the type of quality local brewery it deserves.Our plan from the beginning has been to make this a brewery in Gillette, for Gillette, and by Gillette. This is where we need your help. By using the unique format that Kickstarter provides, everyone has the opportunity to have a direct hand in making this brewery a success. Your pledges will have a direct effect in bringing this brewery to Gillette and in return, you will receive great Gillette Brewing Company rewards.
What is Kickstarter and how does it work?
Kickstarter is a crowd-funding platform for creative projects. It gives everyone the opportunity to play a part in the success of a project such as Gillette Brewing Company. Kickstarter is an all or nothing platform which means if we are unable to achieve our $20,000 goal in 30 days, you aren't charged and we get nothing. But, if we exceed our goal, then we are that much closer to making this dream a reality!
Pledging to our endeavor is simple:
- Create a profile on Kickstarter (all you need is an email address).
- Create an account on Amazon (if you don't already have one). This is where payments are processed.
- Pick your reward level and help support a great local new business.
So tell your friends, family, neighbors, coworkers, congressman, therapist, anyone and everyone you know. We need your help to get the word out and bring Gillette Brewing Company to our community!
Risks and challenges
Gillette Brewing Company will likely have the same challenges many small businesses face, but so far the permitting process and renovation plans are coming along nicely. The partners' combined experience in design, business, and beer making gives us the tools we need to overcome adversity.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
