About

Opened in January 2012 by Dave Hyndman, Wet N Reckless Brewing burned down July 29, 2014 and the world needs it back.

Why?  The beer is unique and delicious.  

The money raised will buy new brewing equipment, refrigeration, furniture for the tasting room and other set up costs. 

Find out more about our beers here.  

This video describes Dave's unique brewing philosophy:

Stretch Goal: $67,000

If we exceed our goal we will be able to hire people to work the tasting room, get a more accessible location and maybe even get a larger brewing system in preparation for bigger and better things.

Risks and challenges

It will be a lot of work, but I've done it before, so I know exactly what to do. The first time around, which started 3 years ago, involved a lot of invention and experimentation plus the building of a customer base. All of those things have already been done. I know exactly what to buy, to build, I have recipes for over 25 different beers and I have a customer base that will come back as soon as I reopen.
