About

Hello New Buffalonians! The New Buffalo Brewing Co. has been working for over 2 years now, getting our plans made, beers tested and preparing to enter the market. We have learned a great deal about the business of Brewing as well as the history of Buffalo along the way. We want to do nothing more than build a new world class Brewery and put Western New York right back at the top for great beer.

With the money raised from this project we will be able to complete two runs of beer. $27,500 covers the cost of the brewing as well as cooperage (kegs) and transportation, plus your grand rewards are tenured. 

Our first two beers? The best brown ale ever made, Saloon Boss Brown  and an Americanized English Bitters you can enjoy all day long, Big Fish Bitters.

  Due to the small size of the batches we won't make much (I should say we won't lose too much) money on these. Our goal with these is to get the beer out there so we can prove we have the demand to go into large production. We will brew 10 barrels (20 kegs) of each beer and after our opening party sell them at a few select bars in the Buffalo-Rochester region. 

Stretch goals are all the rage these days so we'll tell you the first two right up front. At $37,500 we can run another beer. Next on the list is our Iron Road IPA. Using massive amounts of Chinook and Cascade Hops this IPA is just want we need in Buffalo. We don't have to emulate the East or West Coast, this is a North Coast treat. A bigger body and still all the hops any one could desire. Our IPA also weighs in at an enjoyable 7% ABV.

At $47,500 Steamfitter Stout will be brewed.

This is the perfect American Stout. Not so unlike its Irish forefathers but doesn't need nitrogen to be enjoyed. People love this stout and we want to get it in your mittens for the next pond hockey tournament.

After those two we have several more beers ready to go but we would open it up for voting by our kickstarter supporters to say what beer you want us to brew next. The Strong Red ale, the Gilded Age Wheat, our new Oatmeal Stout, or something complete new. We'll make it and get it to market!

The final stretch goal would be 4 times the largest brewery ever funded here on kickstarter.  $250,000; with that money would could skip right to building our own brewery from day one. No contracting, no leased equipment; we could be building this fall. I know its a huge number but I thought we would put it out there. 

And of course follow us on Facebook!

About the Prizes:

Everything that can be delivered to you by Christmas will be. I've personally supported over seventy five kickstarters over the years and I know the frustrations of lost time lines and late shipments. That's why the tap handles have a seemingly random amount. That's how many handles I have so I know I can ship them.

Risks and challenges

You know the standard stuff Zombie Apocalypse, Alien Invasion, Nuclear War. Outside of that the biggest risk to this venture is fluctuation in available brewing capacity, raw materials and interest rates. Since we will get all the beer funded by this project done within 6 months and we already know this year's prices, the impact from these variables should be minimal. We have limited control over the government. While we know the average time it takes for label approval is seventy two days, we've heard of horror stories with six month waits. Lastly I am still an active Air Force Reserve Officer and the Middle East is still unstable. There is potential for deployment. There are people who can step up to fulfill our obligations to our supporters in my absence.
