      Dear Brian,
      Our humans told us about this great project and we have one big question....when you open your brewery will it be pug friendly. We have been told we are beer hounds (ahem- pugs).

      Woo Hoo! It's come together! My pugs, Bella and Monkey are as excited SD I am. Also, my mother is excited I'll have another reason to come to PDX (where she lives). Congrats!

      Not sure I'll ever get to taste it being in Virginia, but hope to see great success from another Oregon brewery! Plus the pug on the left looks a bit like our pug Squash!

      I'm a proud pug daddy and craft beer lover and I'm excited to back this project! We're in Northern California but we'll have to make a trip to Milwaukie if this woks out. Our pug Homer has a Facebook page and we're sharing the news there:

      On the one hand, I listen to NPR daily and I still haven't pledged money. On the other, I'm all the way across the country and contributing here. I actually do have my priorities right :)

      I hope this works out for you! My husband and I are considering moving from Michigan to the Portland area next year and it would be awesome to get out there and know there's some great beer that we helped along :D

      Hooray! More small breweries! I just wish I could afford the $5,000 level, my dog needs a beer named after him.

      Thanks Blake and David. David, HBT post will be coming. Haven't posted over there much in the last year or so. Good time to head back. Blake, sounds like we're practically neighbors. In the Ardenwald area as well!

      Brian, kickstarter authorizes the pledge when it is made and that ties up my credit, so I'll be raising my pledge to at least 100.00 closer to the deadline!!!

      Best of luck w/your project - I'll be by as soon as you are 'open'!!!

      Hey Brian, I'm practically the furthest person in the continental U.S. backing this project but I see the need for more craft beer. I recognized your logo from HBT, I'm Fishindave07. Have you posted a thread about your project to get more support? Cheers, and good luck.
