Prairie Artisan Ales is setting out to create 100% barrel aged beers. We need your support to get this truly artisan project going.

Welcome to the world of Prairie Artisan Ales. A company started by two brothers. We didn't start it due to a lack of good beer, or whatever people like to say. We wanted to do something that was awesome. We have the talent, and most importantly the years of experience needed to get it done. So we did it. We have funded the company on our own, and only want to work with people that care about beer. 

We have decided to do a Kickstarter campaign to help with the costs involved in our 100% oak aged facility. We have purchased a brewhouse, but still need fermenters, conditioning tanks, hoses, fittings. All the little odds and ends that go into a brewery. Our goal is to be filling barrels with beer in our own facility by late summer.

Say what you will about doing a campaign, we figured it wouldn't hurt. We produce a unique product that we feel would be compromised by traditional funding options (investors/partners). We are otherwise putting every penny of our own into this, rest easy that you are supporting 2 people trying to follow their passion with no strings attached.

The $10,000 is a big help in covering some of the costs involved with the facility. We hope you will get behind us in our goal to make rustic barrel aged beer.

Please support our mission to create rustic barrel aged beers. Its art, its beer, its our world.

To recap:

We are looking to build a brewery of our own to brew 100% oak aged beers.

We are raising $10,000 to help pay for the tanks and other parts we need to get started.

We have identified several locations for the facility. We would like to move into one in early summer 2013. Our goal is to brew as soon as legally possible. 

Thanks for your support.
