      "Project was successfully funded on January 13, 2013."
      Soon two years ago. Still not a word about *any* rewards (though I can see below that some got posters and recipes)..

      So it's September 2014, the DVD came out for sale in March 2014 and all I got was a poster and recipes.

      Where's the DVD for the backers?

      So I found the Crafting a Nation facebook page and posted on there last week. I imagine they have seen it because they seem to be very active on the page but obviously no update from them. I would encourage everyone else to do the same. The squeaky wheel gets the grease...and all that.

      Film's been out and screening since like April. On Itunes in October. DVD out since December(UPC# 646032054996). I could even buy over here in Europe now.
      Any updates for the backers?

      Tom - Any news? I've not gotten a copy of the film, the plaque or any of the other rewards promised for my $1000 pledge.

      Has anybody heard anything about the progress of this project? I'm still waiting on my pledge gifts, but more importantly, was the film finished?

      Hey Vicky

      Thank you so much for supporting us! The story of what your sons went through in opening the brewery is both incredible and inspirational. Every single day that we filmed with them, we could feel their determination that helped to drive us forward when we were faced with the similar challenges of trying to get a project completed. We simply cannot wait to share what we have captured from their story, and the stories of brewers across the country with audiences.

      Great Job Guys. It has been an incredible journey watching you work with Black Shirt Brewing Company over this past year, I cannot wait to see the final product. Your passion and drive are clearly evident and match that of the owners of Black Shirt Brewing Company who I am so very proud of as well. Good luck with the final product - I'm sure it will be fabulous. Vicky Holstad (mother and grandma to the Black Shirt Gang)
