Eclectic Ales is an in house, contract brewing company that is helping turn restaurants into brew pubs.
We have paired up with Rock 'N' Dough Pizza Co. to bring the best and freshest beers and pizzas to Jackson, Tennessee. We will be operating on a custom made, 5 barrel brewing system and will have 6 different beers on tap (with draft root beer and cream soda for your little brew monkeys) all made in-house. Rock 'N' Dough will have pizzas with some of the freshest local ingredients you can get along with burgers, salads, grinders, and much much more! Eclectic Ales will provide the freshest and best tasting beer available to Jackson, TN!
Our initial goal of $5,000 will be used towards installation of our beautiful new equipment and purchase of ingredients to start making some amazing beer for you to enjoy. As a self funded project, this $5,000.00 is just a small percentage of the amount of money it’s actually taken to get this dream out of the clouds and into reality. Any additional money raised will go towards additional specialized ingredients and sourcing of local ingredients that will be used to bring you some very special, unique brews you can’t find anywhere else! With our focus always on fresh and local, the more money raised, the better we can obtain for you!
We will be located at 18 Jackson Walk Plaza in the heart of downtown Jackson, Tennessee. Our building is a brand new building that was built as part of a revitalization effort downtown.
The Face Behind Eclectic Ales
Ben Pugh has been home brewing for 7 years and has placed in many local and national contests with his beers. He has had one of his beers brewed by a professional brewery and has competed in the Great American Beer Festival. He is a Beer Judge Certification Program certified beer judge and judges in many contests every year. Ben has also been the president of two of the local Memphis brew clubs and a active member for several years. Beer has become much less of a hobby and more of a passion for him.
The brewery will be located in the center of Rock 'n' Dough's brand new restaurant. The complete brewery will be visible through a floor to ceiling glass wall right in the center of the restaurant and will be the show piece of the store. We will be operating on a brand new, custom made, 5 barrel brewing system.
Just like our name says, we will have an eclectic array of some of the best hand crafted beers in Tennessee. We will have everything from Blondes, Pales, I.P.A.s, Stouts, Belgians, Farm House, Fruit beer...you name it and we will probably have it! We will be using as many local ingredients as we can to bring you a truly local experience!
What Is Kickstarter?
Kickstarter is a "crowdfunding" website that allows creative people to reach out to their friends, family, neighbors, and prospective customers to help get their ideas off the ground. Whether it's a musician pressing a new album, an inventor looking to fund a first production run, or a brewery trying to make history, each creator sets a goal to reach.
If the total pledges don't reach the goal, then the project is not funded at all. The pledges aren't an investment in the business in that you don't get a share of the company- this fundraiser is to aid us in the creation of our brewery.
