Black Frog Brewery is a small nano brewery in Holland, OH a suburb of Toledo,OH. Black Frog Brewery is looking to move out of a converted garage and into a local tap room. We have been in business for over a year now and we are currently selling beer at all 3 local Anderson’s, Monette’s on Glendale and Monette’s on Secor, Joseph’s Beverage Mart, and Churchills in Maumee.
Business has been great but it's time to take the next step and open a tasting room. Opening a tasting room will allow us to expand our beer selection, increase capacity, and hold special events/parties.
With your help, we can make this happen. We will purchase and install a 1BBL electric system, buy additional fermenters and kegs, and build a cold room. We will have to remodel the building to accommodate the tap room and purchase tables and chairs. We will also and build a bar and update the flooring.
Black Frog Brewery was featured in the Toledo Blade,The Beer Blog, Brew Review Crew, The Toledo City Paper and Minority Business Assistance Center. Black Frog Brewery was just recently mentioned in Ebony Magazine.
Black Frog Brewery currently offers 5 beers:
Cream of the Frog (Cream Ale)
Amphibian (American Pale Ale aka APA)
Flying Frog (IPA)
Froglicious (Honey Brown Porter)
Barrel of Frogs( Oak Aged Brown Porter)
Flying Frog is one of our flag ship beers. This beer is dedicated to my father, the 180th Fighter Wing, and the men and women of the US Armed Forces.
Our motto is “Great Beer for Great People”
$20,000 purchase another fermenter
$25,000 upgrade to a 2BBL system
Risks and challenges
We have currently been in business over a year now and there were a lot of hurdles that we had to overcome. Just to have the brewery approved to operate out of the garage was a task within itself. With a lot of hard work and dedication we were able to get it done and the same effort will be put towards the tap room. My wife and I are very dedicated to our cause and we're willing and able to handle any obstacles that come our way.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
