A premiere brewery located in Ridgefield, WA owned by a couple of guys that love beer.

Our goal

Our goal is simple, for Doomsday Brewing Company to become the premiere Nanobrewery in the Ridgefield, WA area. All we desire is to have a career doing what we love. We want to bring the beer we love to everyone. Quality beer with an emphasis on local ingredients. Malt from the oldest malting company in the western United States, Great Western Malting Co, in Vancouver, WA. Hops locally grown in Yakima, WA from Hopunion and yeast from Wyeast Laboratories Inc in Odell, OR.


We already have our business license and a location picked out. We are raising money for a bigger brew system so we can install it in that location, apply for our Brewers Notice, and then start selling our beer.


The Brewery

We have found a used 3BBL system ( That's 90 gallons of beer at a time!) in Wisconsin for sale for a decent price and will be driving out there to pick it up. The system includes a 3BBl brew kettle, hot liquor tank, mash/lauter tun, two 3BBL fermenters, and two 3BBL bright tanks. We are also planing on purchasing two additional 3BBL fermenters. A 3BBL brewing system is still small but with four 3BBL fermenters we can brew our beers and will be able to brew enough beer to keep our taps flowing, growlers filled, and kegs topped off.

The guys behind the beer

We’re just some ordinary guys that love beer. Erik Cloe, Jake Walton, Robert Henderling and Sean O'Conner. We are the owners and the brewers, we have been been friends for more than ten years and have been brewing together for a little over a year now. Doom is fun and on the edge, that's why we named our brewery Doomsday Brewing Company. We will also make our beers exciting with edgy flavors.

Our beer

We currently have seven recipes that we are brewing. Our year round beers “Nuclear IPA” a West cost IPA “Redemption Red” a Northwest red ale and “Blackout Chocolate Stout” a traditional stout with chocolate. The seasonal beers that we will be offering during the first year are: Spring “Heatwave Hefeweizen” a German hefeweizen, Summer “Solar Flare Wheat” a citrus wheat beer with a hint of blueberry, Fall “Prepper Pumpkin Brown Ale” a brown ale with a giant pumpkin flavor, and Winter “Plague Vanilla Porter” a heavy porter fermented with vanilla beans.

What the heck is Kickstarter?

Kickstarter is a "crowdfunding" website that allows creative people to reach out to their friends, family, neighbors, and prospective customers to help get their ideas off the ground. Whether it's a musician pressing a new album, an inventor looking to fund a first production run, or a brewery looking to build a tasting room, each creator sets a goal to reach. If the total pledges don't reach the goal, then the project is not funded at all. The pledges aren't an investment in the business in that you don't get a share of the company- this fundraiser is just for the construction of the brewery. Kickstarter has a great FAQ here: http://www.kickstarter.com/help/faq/kickstarter%20basics. Note: If we don't get 100% funded, we get nothing! None of the pledges come out of your accounts until we reach 100%, so please help us spread the word about our nano brewery! 1. CREATE a Kickstarter account: all it takes is an email address. 2. SIGN IN at Amazon.com - if you already have an account, you're all set. If not it only takes a moment. 3. PLEDGE what you are comfortable giving. We appreciate every dollar. If you find yourself wanting to help but unable to donate you can skip to the next step to help us spread the word. Your card will only be charged should we reach our full goal. 4. SHARE this with your friends, family, coworkers, neighbors, and whoever else crosses your path!

Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter

There are lots of risks and challenges when starting any business. There is a lot of paper work involved, getting all the licensing is going to be a challenge. Finding a suitable location for our Nanobrewery and tap already was a challenge. The two biggest risks we have is this kickstarter campaign failing and not having start up money.
