About

You're probably asking yourself a few questions right now.  What is Beer Syrup? How do I use it?  These are questions we get every day so do not worry because we love telling people about it! 

Beer Syrup is a non-alcoholic simple syrup that is made from craft beer and it can be used as a topping for waffles, pancakes, french toast, and ice cream or even as a mixer with different spirits to create a craft cocktail.  We also like to use it as a glaze for meats, fish and vegetables or substitute it for regular simple syrup or sugar when making desserts.  The flavor profile is unique because of the different malts, hops and yeast that are used in the brewing process, which makes Beer Syrup a truly versatile product and one that can be used almost anywhere in the kitchen or behind the bar.  We have spent months developing the Trade Secret for producing this Beer Syrup and now we want to share it with everyone!

I can't say enough to express how deeply grateful we are for the amount of love and support we have received in the last year while we embarked on launching this company. We took all the necessary precautions to make sure things were done the right way and our Beer Syrups have received nothing but great reviews from everyone we met along the way. There has been a lot of strategic planning and product development that has gone into creating our final product in order to have them FDA certified and approved but it has definitely been worth the wait. Being the first company to commercially produce Beer Syrups has been an exciting road to travel but now that the tedious part is behind us, it is time for us to grow here at The Beer Syrup Company and we need your help!

One of the biggest challenges a company faces when starting out is figuring out who they are in their respective industry and how their marketing and branding will shape them for the future to come.  This was one of our many concerns but we had a vision early on and wanted to stay true to that by defining our company by its products that are as versatile as they are unique.  When we first started producing test batches of our Beer Syrups, we intended for them to be used by bartenders but soon figured out that the general consumer would use our product on a more consistent basis for things other than mixing cocktails.  Thus, we wanted to develop our packaging to accommodate both types of consumers while being functional and elegant.  We have chosen our style of bottle and labeling to reflect this and we are confident that we made the right choice.  This is one of the reasons we are asking for help because buying these bottles a few cases at a time is not cost effective and in order to lower our overall production cost we will need to purchase our bottles directly from the manufacturer whom we have already developed a relationship with.  The great thing about our bottle is that it can be reused by our customers after the Beer Syrup is gone.  You can use it to store other liquids in the kitchen such as oils and vinegars or even use it for bottling your own home brewed beer, which has been one of our favorite uses after we consume all the Beer Syrup.  

After producing our first small batch of Beer Syrups, we have been able to attend a few events here in Louisville, Kentucky, and offer tastings to the public while selling out of our bottles almost every time we come out.  We have also gathered a lot of interest from bars, restaurants, and retailers who want to feature this product on their menus and store shelves but it's hard to meet the demand of both consumers and businesses who want the product immediately.  This is another reason we are launching our campaign so that we can increase the amount of Beer Syrup we produce per Batch while growing our company's market outside of Louisville.  In order to do this, we also need to secure our very own UPC so retailers can carry our product on their shelves.  Once we purchase our own UPC, we can approach any nationwide retailer and begin to set up distribution in other states beyond Kentucky, which we have already started to do so and many companies are just waiting for our call to deliver.  

Getting started with our 3 original flavors has been successful (and delicious!) but that is one of the amazing things about craft beer as an ingredient; there are so many different styles and flavors of beer that it gives us an almost unlimited opportunity for creating additional flavors of Beer Syrup!  We have known since the beginning while doing our research on different flavor profiles that we would eventually add other flavors of Beer Syrups.  That's why we are inviting a few people to help us choose the next flavor of Beer Syrup that will be offered as a permanent selection throughout the year.  Those who choose to contribute to our campaign at this level will be able to help with this process by voting on which flavors we should add and then we will give them samples of Beer Syrup to decide which is their favorite.  We will also put their name on the back label of the bottle for the entire production run of Batch #2.  Also, it has been our goal to brew our own beer for the purpose of making Beer Syrup and we we will offer the opportunity for someone to come to Louisville and help us brew our very first beer that will be made into a syrup.  We are looking forward to launching our next flavors of Beer Syrup but we need your help in order to accomplish this goal.

We want everyone to be able to taste our delicious Beer Syrups and this campaign is a perfect opportunity to get our product out to the people who will enjoy it the most while allowing us to grow regionally and nationally.  Once again, we are excited to launch this campaign and want to thank everyone for their support along the way and we look forward to hearing back from you about your Beer Syrup tasting experience!

Risks and challenges

To be honest, we are fully prepared for the successful completion of our campaign. Since we have taken the time to develop relationships with our beer distributors, bottle supplier, product manufacturer and label producer, we are prepared to fulfill every order that comes through. The only thing that could prolong our estimated December delivery is if we receive an overwhelming amount of orders, which we will then be at the mercy of time and being able to produce enough Beer Syrup to fill all orders. If this happens, we will try to work around the clock in order to produce, bottle, label and wax dip every bottle in time. If everything goes as planned, we would like to fill every order and have them delivered before Christmas.

    Ok so here's the deal. We have always wanted to brew our own beer in order to make the Beer Syrup and this seems like the perfect opportunity to make that happen. We are inviting you to come to Louisville, Kentucky, and help us brew the first batch of beer that will be made into a Beer Syrup!

    That's right, we will brew the beer together and you will get to do all the dirty work that brewers love to do on a daily basis. You'll get to mill the grain, add the hops, and even pitch the yeast. Heck, we'll even let you clean and sanitize all the equipment once we're done. I hope you are as excited about this opportunity as we are!

    So in order to make this happen here's what we are going to do. With your $1,000 contribution, we will invite you out to Louisville, Kentucky, and put you up in a hotel for two (2) nights. We will give you a tour of our favorite craft breweries throughout Kentucky and even stop at a few Bourbon Distilleries along the way; that way you get to experience all that Kentucky has to offer. Once we are done with our statewide tour, we will take you throughout Louisville to visit all the local breweries as well. We will provide all your transportation, meals and of course flights of beer from each brewery. The only thing you'll pay for is your transportation to and from Louisville, Kentucky, and any souvenirs you want to take home as a reminder of our great Bluegrass State!

    Once you have returned home, our beer will be on its way to finishing the fermentation process and we will be getting ready to turn it into a delicious Beer Syrup. Since you worked so hard to make the beer with us, we are going to put your name on the back label for as long as we produce that flavor of Beer Syrup. We will also send you three (3) bottles from Batch #1 so that you can keep one for your trophy case and use the rest in the kitchen or behind the bar.

    Along with helping us create our first batch of beer to be made into Beer Syrup, you will also receive three (3) bottles of Beer Syrup from Batch #2 and you get to choose from our three original flavors: Mocha Porter, Pecan Nut Brown, and Bourbon Barrel Stout. After our campaign is successful, you will be prompted to select the flavors you wish to receive in a survey form that is sent to you by email. You do not have to select different flavors so you can feel free to choose three of the same flavor if you like. These bottles will be delivered to you in December 2015 so you will get them before you come out to Louisville and help us brew the first batch of beer. Plus, we will take care of the shipping costs for all your bottles.

    Along with your three bottles of Beer Syrup, you will receive a personal handwritten letter saying Thank You, a sticker with our company logo, a pint glass with our company logo and your name will be placed on our website Company Founders Page for the eternity of our existence. Who knows, if we ever erect a statue in front of our future building, your name could end up on the base in bronze.
