The weather in Denver has been dynamic this week, and inspired this post from Branden -

Update #3

New Backer Incentives...

Comment

We just added new $5 and $15 dollar backer incentives, as requested by many of you. Don't worry if you have already backed us at the higher level, the deal just got sweeter for you! And for those who backed with $10 to $15 before there were incentives, not to worry, you will be getting those incentives now as well.

Cheers and enjoy your afternoon! - BSB


Update #2

Quick Snapshot...

Comment

Hello Kickstarter community and Black Shirt Mafia, we wanted to let you all know that we just got more tanks in! Shiny, stainless steel gives us all a warm, fuzzy feeling and giddy excitement knowing that it will allow us to brew more Red Ale! We are still working with the City of Denver in the effort of getting our permits issued. We are getting closer each day, and we are gearing up to launch BSB into the world! Again, thanks so much for getting into The Red Ale Project! Keep spreading the word!

Cheers, Black Shirt Brewing Co

Update #1

Tuesday Oct, 4th Update

Comment

Hello everyone @ Kickstarter and beyond! We wanted to send an update and say a huge THANK YOU to all that have donated to The Red Ale Project! Your support of this dream of ours is so exciting and wonderful. We have come a long way this first week, but we still have a very long way to go. Please continue to spread the word about this campaign and about Black Shirt Brewing Co. Together, we can achieve this goal!

As an added benefit, we will be be honoring every single person that donates to The Red Ale Project by having each person sign their name, or write their favorite quote or piece of advice on a wall in the brewery. It will be immortalized forever! And we would like to thank Paul Danek for the great recommendation.

As you probably know, this past week Denver played host to the 30th Annual Great American Beer Fest. Over 60,000 people attended the festival and so many more were out and about, drinking rare kegs and special one-offs at all the best places in town. We made it out to several events to spread the word about BSB and The Red Ale Project. We also organized a guerilla GABF takeover last Thursday where our good friends (old and new) helped to spread the word and pass out over 1700 fliers to the attendees of the GABF, right before they opened the doors. Never before has a brewery used that tactic! In the hours beforehand, Branden was calling it "Operation: when I was arrested I was dressed in black," half-joking about getting arrested at the GABF. Luckily, the security had a good sense of humor and allowed us to talk with soooo many people about our little brewery and our unique approach. Let's hope it translates into people getting behind us! We have been all over town in the days since, posting fliers and chatting with bartenders and anyone who will stand still long enough!  Viva la Revolucion!

Again, we thank you all from the bottom of our hearts for your support and ask that you continue to chat with your friends and family about Black Shirt Brewing Co and The Red Ale Project. Have a blessed week! - Chad, Branden, and Carissa
