At Alexandria Brewing Company, we share the same belief; you achieve true happiness by making others around you happy. Our mission is to create an honest company that gives back and treats all people involved like we would want to be treated. We want to build a business on the foundation of integrity.

We plan to tap into the Alexandria and Greater Cincinnati communities by sharing good company, celebrating rock and roll while also enjoying great beer at a family-friendly establishment.

With your pledge, you will help us create a taproom and German-styled biergarten for the community, while also taking advantage of some wicked cool rewards we have listed below.

We look forward to sharing a pint with you soon, cheers!

Risks and challenges

With any new business, come risks and challenges. We are certain that we have set ourselves up for success here at ABC. If we face any roadblocks, you have our word that we will tend to them as quickly and efficiently as possible so you get the sweet swag and experiences you paid for!

All glassware and apparel will ship upon campaign completion. The experiential rewards are obviously contingent upon the timing of the brewery and taproom opening. Thank you in advance for your patience.

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, can take longer than expected as well which can cause delays to opening our doors.
