STRETCH REWARDS!!!!!!!!!!!! We have reached our goal and WILL fund Sentinel Peak Brewing Company's Kickstarter Project!!
We are grateful and amazed and thankful for reaching our goal with 7 days left in our campaign. SOOO, we will now offer these "Stretch Rewards" for anyone who pledges (and has already pledged) at the "Coach Ernie Pantuso" level and above:
If we reach $35,000 by our end date/time on 5/31, everyone who has a growler and/or T-shirt coming to them will receive a LIMITED EDITION "I MADE SENTINEL PEAK BREWING COMPANY HAPPEN" type of logo placed on their growler and/or t-shirt. Only those who supported us on Kickstarter will get these items, we will not sell or give these to anyone else... as a result, we will know who you are every time you walk into SPBC and you will get the proper thanks (and hugs if you so choose) from all of us for making this dream happen.
We couldn't do it without you. Let's not stop now! Spread the word!
The brewer, the builder, and the cowboy….more widely known as Jeremy Hilderbrand, Matt Gordon, and Taylor Carter joined forces early in 2012 with the idea of taking Jeremy’s home brewing habit to another level. All long-time Tucsonans and firefighters with deep community roots, the three plan to use their diverse backgrounds and skills to bring Sentinel Peak’s award-winning craft beers into the Tucson sun.
Like fine art, music, and food, great beer brings people together and Sentinel Peak Brewing Company aims to provide outstanding regional interpretations of classic beer styles from around the world in a relaxed setting where families, friends, and neighbors can gather over a pint…or two.
Sentinel Peak will offer three flagship beers—the gold medal-winning Monsoon Dunkel, the classic 1811 Desert Blonde, and the Salida del Sol Mexican Amber—along with a rotating selection of vetted seasonal brews, which could include our Haboob IPA, Gullywasher Brown, Heat Wave Hefeweizen, Microburst Belgian White, Summer Swelter Citrus Ale, as well as a Chocolate-Coffee Stout, Oatmeal Stout, Pumpkin Ale, Oktoberfest, or Winter Porter.
Now. Tucson is on the verge of an artisan beer renaissance. People are thirsty for local, high quality products with a conscience and Sentinel Peaking Brewing Company is eager to meet the demand.
A mid-town commercial location just east of the beloved University of Arizona, will allow Sentinel Peak to offer beer and small plate items to a broad section of the greater Tucson area, and help us keep a finger on the pulse of the city.
As firemen, Matt, Taylor, and Jeremy understand and believe in the power of community and see the opening of Sentinel Peak Brewing Company as an extension of their commitment to serve Tucson. With that in mind, the guys are deeply committed to creating as positive a footprint as possible by hosting and sponsoring charity events, repurposing the spent grains to local farmers, and going solar as soon as possible.
Sentinel Peak knows that, as a city, we’ve been through some tough times, but believes that together we can look toward the future and raise a glass to the good things in life.
This is where you come in. We already have an ideal location locked down and our 3-barrel system (that’s ninety gallons) in place. Plus, we are waist-deep in the licensing process, which continues to move forward. But there’s more work to be done! With your support, we will be able to complete the renovations and buy the additional equipment needed to reach our ultimate goal—opening Sentinel Peak Brewing Company’s doors.
DONATE to our Kickstarter campaign and not only will you help make this project a reality, but you'll score sweet rewards as well! We only receive funding if we reach our TOTAL goal—it's all or nothing people, so please donate if you can. To help kick-start Sentinel Peak Brewing Company, follow these simple steps:
1. CREATE a Kickstarter account. It's simple; all it takes is an email.
2. SIGN IN at Amazon.com. If you already have an account, you're set. If not, it’s easy to create one.
3. DONATE to our Kickstarter project page and pledge at whatever level you’re comfortable. We appreciate every penny. Your card will only be charged should we reach our full goal by May 31, 2013.
4. SHARE us with your friends, family, coworkers, neighbors, college buddies and whoever else crosses your path. The more support we receive, the sooner we can start serving up those craft beers that you love. Spread the word!

Once again we thank everyone for your time and consideration, and we can't wait to meet you in the taproom.

Risks and challenges
The risks and challenges we see with completing our nanobrewery revolve around the issues we may find during the renovation. We are nearly complete with all of the necessary permits and licensing and are working closely with the City of Tucson to achieve our goal; however, some repairs and upgrades are still unknown to us.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
