We are dedicated to being a company that consistently provides a wonderful product, atmosphere, and purpose. It is our belief that craft beer should be enjoyed among friends in an environment that promotes fellowship and camaraderie. To that end, we made sure to find a fantastic location for manufacturing and tasting that reflects that spirit. As a company, and as brewers, we're dedicated to making all feel welcome, from the craft beer enthusiast to the uninitiated newcomer.
We want to be a light in our city and to this world, pushing the boundaries of what a small business can do. Sanctum is striving to be more than a product, but a force for good. Generosity will be built into how we run things, from the ground up.
THE BREWHOUSE AND TASTING ROOM
As far as new craft breweries with an amazing tasting room and manufacturing in Pomona, we are number 1!! Though we are the only one, we're still fantastical! We are going to be one block from the bustling downtown area of Pomona, near the Fox Theater, The Glass House, and other awesome stuff. Pomona has recently dedicated itself to rebuilding, repurposing and redefining itself as a haven for art, music and crafted goods; we're excited to contribute to that goal. The first piece of our gorgeous building was constructed in 1916. The building is now undergoing a complete renovation and update! Check it out here Our unit specifically has a still-functioning scale dating back to when peaches were packaged there! Peachy! We're extremely excited to open our doors and let people experience our unique craft ales in a place that mirrors the spirit of our business!
We believe that beer should be a creative expression from us to you. As we mentioned in our video, we will be offering many different varieties of fresh craft beer available at our tasting room and through local distribution.
Our goal is to provide the most unique, creatively crafted ales possible. Mixing different ale styles, ingredients and unique fermentation practices, we're constructing the most unique lineup of beers we can. We are always open to trying new things but never about being different for being different's sake. Some of the beers we make are out there, but we never compromise flavor, or magic...or deliciousness. Whether we're throwing lavender in a Strong Scotch Ale (bad idea that tastes like vapor rub) or putting maple syrup in a Belgian Trippel (which is amazing!), we're constantly trying new things and keeping what's worthy.
For a preliminary list of what we'll offer when we're open, scroll down to the bottom!
WASTE NOT, WANT NOT
One of the coolest things about the craft beer industry is a dedication to limiting waste and maximizing efficiency. Whether reusing heat from cooling boiling beer, or responsibly managing our spent barley, we're dedicated to keeping our carbon footprint tiny and our beer footprint even more foot-printy.
YOUR BACKING, OUR TRACKING
With your help we will ensure that the investments we've already received and the money we've invested takes us all the way to our goal. We are making every effort to innovate, cut down and limit ourselves without limiting the vision of our company. We're asking for $40,000 to ensure that we have everything we need. Even though this is a lofty goal, it is still only a portion of what it takes to succeed as a company in this industry. Despite that, we believe that with your help we can easily make this a reality.
The funds will go toward building modifications (plumbing, gas lines, floor drains), licensing, brewing equipment essentials and the construction and decor of our tasting room. Meeting, or exceeding our goal will allow us to remain debt free and focus on bringing the most excellent instance of our brewery to life. The more we raise, the more kegs, serving tanks, taps, decor, vibe, wittiness, and service we can furnish. Please partner with us today to keep us on track toward achieving what will be Pomona's first production brewery and tasting room. Partner with us today to help us realize our dream and bring amazing craft ale to the wonderful city of Pomona and receive awesome rewards like these:

TALES OF ALES
HAMISH THE RED: Imperial Red Ale brewed with turnips. This delicious, hoppy, smooth red ale keeps you coming for more! Though it technically has 115 IBU's, it is remarkably smooth and easy to drink!
HEATHER THE STORM: Strong Scotch Ale brewed with heather tips and smoked barley. This amazingly malty, smooth and smokey beer makes us wonder why Scotch ales aren't more popular!
BARLEY ROSE: Belgian Golden Strong Ale brewed with distilled rose water and rose petals. This beer is very easy to drink, but complex and interesting with flower and rose notes in the bouquet and finish.
BROKEN BREAD: Colonial Pale Ale brewed with toasted squaw bread. We call this colonial because it's a mix of English and American pales. We throw the bread in for bready sweetness to compliment the generous amount of Falconer's Flight, Bravo and Pilgrim hops!
RYE'DIN DIRTY: Brown Ale brewed with rye malt. A delicious take on a favorite style. The rye magnifies perceived bitterness and gives a smooth earthy kick in the pants!
CATHEDRAL DUBBEL: Belgian Dubbel brewed with dark candy syrup. This delicious beer has a wonderfully complex malt profile with delicious under tones of raisin and plum. A very easy drinker for a 9.3 percenter!
WINNIE THE BLONDE: Blonde Ale made with honey malt. This brew is extremely enjoyable. It doesn't challenge the pallet, but neither is it simple. With complex honey, malt and champagne characteristics, this is a real winner.
CREATIVE NAME IPA: This IPA is a clean, crisp wonderful beer that is balanced. Using Simcoe and Falconer's Flight, it has a wonderful aroma and delicious hop flavor.
BEERANOSAURUS REX: Imperial IPA that consists of only two malts for the entire grain bill. The simplicity of the grain bill lets the purity of hop flavor and aroma shine through. Copiously dry hopped, it is a wonderful addition to the Imperial IPA cannon.
DARK NIGHT OF THE SOUL: Imperial Stout brewed with Dutch-process chocolate. This deeply dark and satisfying stout is both intense and smooth. Rich dark and milk chocolate flavors mix in the mouth-feel of the beer to finish satin-smooth.
Risks and challenges
We do face some risks, but they are already being faced as we speak, or as I type and you read...or really, as I have typed and now you are reading.
There is always a slight chance that one governing body may tangle us up in regulations or decide to enforce things more strictly than we anticipate. We plan to handle this by tenacity and determination and doing all we can to work with the government and all regulations we must adhere to.
The only real risks are the same with opening any food/beverage related business: right product, right price, right place. We feel we are right where we need to be with all three, but we will always do what it takes to ensure our business and tasting room are profitable.
Luckily, there aren't many challenges after we are funded because we already have things in motion, we're just looking to continue our already amazing momentum.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
