Three friends with a passion for delicious craft beer.  Together, our dream is to launch a community-minded micro brewery, using 100% natural spring water collected from our property, to brew the most amazing beer. And we want to share our fantastic product with everyone. With your support we can make that dream a reality.

.

 This is an "all or nothing" funding campaign.  If we don't reach our goal, then we don't receive any money (and you don't pay), and of course, you don't receive any of the awesome rewards. Talk about a buzz kill! Don't forget to spread the word so we can make this campaign a success!

.

The opening of Cartwright Springs Brewery is a certainty.  We have laboured with our friends and family and construction of our brewery building is complete; our permits are filed and the brewery equipment is due to arrive soon.  Getting to this stage has required a lot of capital expense, and we've poured our life savings into this passion and dream.  We'd like to invite the community to join us in our adventure, and help us cross the finish line.

.

The Tasting Room. Due to unforeseen permit and licensing costs, we are short on funds required to make our retail space and tasting room into the comfortable and inviting space we envision for hosting our customers. We'll be using the money from this campaign to create a space that will reflect our beer, our craft and our community.

Risks and challenges

As with any new business, we face plenty of hurdles we must overcome. We are making the tenant improvements at our building, have ordered all primary equipment, and we do not see any insurmountable delays pending.

That said, as with any business, we could face further delays as a result of permitting and licensing requirements. We could face delays as a result of unforeseen equipment or facility issues. But no such delays would prevent us from completing the project and opening once we were ready.
