About this project

$10,370

There are 83,000 residents in Caldwell County, 370,000 in the unifour area and not a single true brewpub! That is a lot of thirsty people!
My name is Stephen Loe.
This is my home town of Granite Falls. This area was an industrial powerhouse of textiles, furniture and other manufacturing companies.
Most of these businesses have moved on for cheaper labor/ cheaper taxes to places like Mexico and China. Now we are left here with a lot of great history, old factory buildings, breathtaking mountain views, but most importantly the people. We are still here! And we are proud of our beginnings and our mountain heritage. And we are proud to serve this great area.
This is a new age of growth for Caldwell County, our area may have less furniture but we are rich with new industries, technology and many others coming every day to work and relax in our beautiful Appalachian mountains.
We would like to bring to this area the first brewery and brewpub. We would like to expand in this area to provide jobs and training to the areas talented workforce. For a little history on us, I am a professionally trained chef and graduate of the prestigious Culinary Institute of America; I have worked in restaurants from New York to New Orleans for the past 18 years. Besides my great love for food, I love craft beer! Between my father and I, we have 40 years of brewing experience that we would like to share to the world. For the past two years we have been open in Hickory NC perfecting and serving some of the area’s finest ales and lagers. We hand craft award winning beers produced from the finest ingredients worldwide, utilizing local grown strawberries, to the best hops in Germany, to handcraft the best product we can, and produce it here in NC. North Carolina is becoming one of the fastest growing craft beer states in America. Industry giants such as Sierra Nevada, New Belgium, and Oskar Blues have taken notice of our states growth and are all opening new facilities in Western NC. This is proof of our nation’s love of craft beer, and will also bring more tourists, more jobs and an overall boost to our local economy. We are proud to be a part of such a great industry and want to bring it a little closer to home! Along with having some of the best local beers, we want to bring you one of the finest restaurants in NC. We have a lot of great restaurants in the area , but we want to bring you a true white tablecloth fine dining restaurant with a comfortable relaxed atmosphere that serves some of North Carolinas finest Appalachian cuisines, we want to emphasize on local ingredients from NC farms and agriculture. We want to smoke and cure our own meats , specializing in house made bacon, corned beef, pastrami, sausages, dry cured steaks , fresh ground burgers, artisanal pizzas, our menu will be printed daily with new Appalachian inspired daily specials , day boat seafood, and the finest from scratch hearth oven breads, and classical mountain sized desserts. Never again will this area be forced to eat the same boring cuisine.
We would like to bring you these and many more, providing white table cloth quality at affordable brown bag lunch prices. The days of overpriced quality food are over! I believe everyone should be able to afford a great meal and I will work more efficiently to pass on the savings to you.
Just because we make great beer, we would also like to be family friendly and be a great place for everyone to enjoy our handmade quality offerings!
What could be better than one of our handmade brats, fresh out of the oven pretzel and a hand crafted artisanal beer sitting in our beer garden with amazing mountain views???
I say nothing!
This is where you can come in and can help this great idea on paper become a reality. We need your help to fundraise the huge expense of relocating and expanding to provide these great services. We thought it would be a fun and different way to raise money by offering you some great rewards to thank you for investing in us. We have some fantastic opportunities to become one of our founders, to our great mug club, quality Loe’s Brewing gear, vacations, Brewing experiences, and even get your Business name permanently attached to our wall and website! For more details about our rewards or if you have a great idea for us please check us out at http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1603598976/loes-brewing-company
Or contact us at Info@loesbrewing.com and www.facebook.com/loesbrewing    Even if you cannot invest, we would love to hear from you and listen to your thoughts and ideas about this project!
We promise to work hard, but we are nothing without the support of our community, please be a part of our dream, and tell everyone how you helped start Caldwell county's first brewpub!
Thank you,

Stephen Loe
