Alexandria Brewing Company
Brewed in Cincinnati tradition. Proudly made in Kentucky. ***If viewing from mobile please click "Read More" to see rewards.***
Alexandria Brewing Company was envisioned by our Head Brewer, Andy Reynolds years ago. After two tours in Iraq, Andy found that the process of brewing different beers helped put his mind at ease. He took his love for brewing and decided to follow that path for his career. In 2015, Andy went to the Siebel Institute of Technology, America’s oldest and most respected brewing institution, to master his craft.
The reason we chose Alexandria, Kentucky as a destination for our brewery is that it is a close community where people still take the time to say “hello.” Andy’s wife, Ann, was raised in Alexandria. Together they own land, where Andy grew his first hops.
We envision Alexandria Brewing Company as a family-friendly establishment celebrating rock and roll, fun, and, the best beers around.
The main objective that all of us here at Alexandria Brewing Company agree on is to build a business that has integrity. This is a key foundation in all facets of ABC. Having worked in various corporate positions and seeing how some companies treat employees and consumers, we want to create an honest company that gives back and treats all people involved like we would want to be treated.
Alexandria Brewing Company will be brewed in Cincinnati tradition. Proudly made in Kentucky.

We have set a goal of $30,000 with a stretch goal of $60,000 and a crazy goal of $100,000. The goal is the minimum we need to get this project off the ground. The stretch gets us everything we need with minimum investor support. The crazy goal will set a Kickstarter record for a brewery.

Risks and challenges
It's Greater Cincinnati. "You don't like the weather? It can change in five minutes." Yeah, yeah. But we all know how winter works and as such, may face possible construction and/or brewing delays if our suppliers can't get to us.
Additionally, we are subject to the Commonwealth of Kentucky's Alcoholic Beverage Control and the Federal Tax and Trade Bureau licensing and approval. Building permits, processed at all different levels, could take longer than expected as well.
Regarding the rewards, we will ship glassware, jewelry, apparel upon completion of the campaign. The experiential rewards (i.e. parties! brewing! fun!) are obviously contingent upon the timing of the brewery and taproom opening. Thank you in advance for your patience.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
