Funding:

Hi! I'm Jon, and I'm Josh and we are the founders of Angry Inch Brewing. Our brewery needs your help in raising $30,000 to help cover the costs of construction. We began this project fully funded by investors, however we lost an investor when he encountered a life changing family emergency. Since we see friends as family we could't imagine holding him to his original contribution. The $30,000 will cover the remaining costs of our tap room build out and get us to where we need to be to start brewing on our seven barrel brewhouse as well as purchase all of the merchandise. The extended goal of $50,000 would allow us to furnish the taproom, purchase glassware, and finish off the pilot system so that we can keep creating new and exciting recipes to add to our collection.

How to become a backer:

  • Create a Kickstarter account 
  • Log in using your email and password (or use your Amazon account information) 
  • Click on the reward(s) that you have been so anxiously waiting for. 
  • Share this project like the taproom depends upon it.  If we don't reach our goal we do not get any of the funds and everything gets delayed. We want to be open. You want us to be open, so let's get this project funded!

REWARDS:

REWARDS $10 & UP include an invitation to a Kickstarter-only party to be held at our taproom located on: 20841 Holyoke Ave. Lakeville, Minnesota. You will be able to pick up your rewards during the party, don't worry if you can't make it to the party, we will still ship any rewards that are not picked up. We'll have plenty of beer on tap (for purchase) as a thank you for making our dreams come true.

Unfortunately beer cannot be one of our rewards, but we make up for it in our extensive list of merchandise which is being released for the first time here on Kickstarter and wont be available again until after we open. Enough talk here are the rewards:

Experiences

Golfing with the brewers

An 18-hole golf game with both of the brewers: Jon (the tall one) and Josh (the not so tall one.) On an agreed upon date you and a friend will meet Jon and Josh at the brewery for lunch. After lunch they will take you to Crystal Lake golf course in Lakeville, MN for a fun and eventful day. 

Assistant brewer for a day

Join the brewers in brewing one of their signature beers on their 7 barrel brew house. Expect to spend at least four hours hanging out and helping at Angry Inch Brewing.

Design a beer

Get together with Jon and Josh at the brewery design a recipe that you think would make an excellent beer. The guys will order all the supplies necessary and when it all arrives you will brew your recipe on the pilot system. If the beer turns out well and the brewers feel like it will do well they will place it on tap, if not don't be mad, not every recipe is meant to workout.

Bundles

In addition to all of these single reward items we also have several bundled options available. Read through the entire list of rewards and choose accordingly. If you have an idea for a bundle that doesn't already exist, please do let us know, if we are able to make it happen we will.

LOOKING FORWARD TO POURING YOUR FIRST PINT AT THE BACKER ONLY PARTY!! :)

Risks and challenges

The potential challenges we may face as we continue with this project are abundant, but the two we are currently most concerned about are delays in construction which will set our opening date further and further back. As well as getting our brew house equipment delivered on time. We are currently working with the manufactures to get all the equipment we need to set up our brew house and are staying in constant contact with the construction crew. For our merchandise we have set an estimated delivery date for the end of the year, we certainly hope to get all of these items out to you a lot sooner than that but are unable to predict what the delivery timeline will be.
