Tacoma Brewing Co. makes small hand-crafted batches of unique ales. But Tacoma is thirsty. Please help us make more beer. Thank you!

My name is Morgan Alexander and I started Tacoma Brewing with one goal in mind: to supply Tacoma with tasty  high-quality craft beer. From bourbon-oaked imperial stouts to pomegranate porters to citrus-crisp double IPAs, I am happy to create craft beers that push boundaries of what beer can be.

Since we tapped our first keg last October, we have learned one thing from our customers: TACOMA IS THIRSTY! And we want to help! This is why we are doing this Kickstarter and asking for your support.

While the current location at the Amocat Cafe works fine for serving our beers, the space is really not suitable for brewing. To remedy this, we are working on securing warehouse space and upgrading our equipment for additional brewing capacity. But even though we are staying small, stainless steel brewing equipment is very expensive - not to mention the costs of commercial plumbing and electrical work. With your support, we will be able to purchase larger kettles, mash tuns, and fermenters - so that we can make more high-quality beer for Tacoma.

Thank you for your support!

Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter

From talking with others that have completed successful Kickstarter campaigns, I have designed the follow-through on my Kickstarter to be easily accomplished. This was done by choosing rewards that can be sourced from a number of different suppliers under a tight time-frame.

FAQ

  • Hi,

    We have gotten some questions to pledge add-ons:

    If you would like to add a growler to your level (any level), please add $20 to your amount.

    If you pledged at the $25 level or higher and would like to add an extra t-shirt, please add $25 to your amount.

    If you pledged at the $55 level or higher and would like to bring an additional guest, please add $20 per guest to your amount.

    Cheers!
    Morgan

  • The VIP party mentioned in this Kickstarter will be the FIRST of what will be an annual event featuring "The Golden Keg" where we will feature an ultra-special LIMITED beer that is only available at the event. The event is NOT OPEN TO THE PUBLIC. You MUST have a Golden Ticket in order to gain admittance. ONE of these Golden Tickets will be made available to those who pledge at the $55 level or higher. Any tickets remaining after the Kickstarter ends will be made available for sale on a FIRST come, FIRST served basis and ONLY sold prior to the event. There will NOT be tickets available at the door the day of the event.

    UPDATE: We should have mentioned that if you would like to bring a guest (or guests) you can do an add-on to your VIP Kickstarter by adding $20 for each guest. This helps cover costs associated with food and stuff. Due to Kickstarter policy, we are not able to state that you will actually receive beer.

  • We at the Tacoma Brewing Co. would just like to clarify that setting up a Kickstarter campaign for a brewery is extra challenging. Kickstarter policy is such that no promises, coupons, or vouchers for alcohol can be made. We are not even allowed to say what we do with kegs.

    So, there you are. Now you know what we are not allowed to state.
