About this project

MANCÄVE BREWING COMPANY

Is a brewery soon to be open in Glenwood, OR slapped right between Eugene and Springfield. Our brewery will be within a 1.5 miles of the  Univeristy of Oregon Campus! Right by the willamette river. 

In 2005, I saw a kid around my age handing out flyers at the Local community college, "Learn to brew your own beer." I thought of double rainbows lined with all the beer in the world and the possibilty of my very own brewery. Later in 2005, I bought, "The Complete Joy of Homebrewing" by Charlie Papazian.  I started all grain brewing, no extract crap, only the good stuff. I got some really awesome reviews, one guy even rode off on a unicorn no his name was not Atreu. I gave my beer to everyone I could, including, local breweries Ninkasi and Falling Sky. Ninkasi helped me out big time. They gave me hundreds of bottles just for a try of my beer in return! Thanks Guys! Falling Sky, helped me out a lot too always, helping me when I had any sort of brewery question. We are going to brew crazy beers, a line of wheat beers. Also saison, sours, rauchbeir, aged beers in wine and spirit cask, and really awesome traditional ales. We also will be Oregon's only catery, yes that is a word a made up. What is a catery? A catery, is a brewery that caters beer. Offering not only the beers we sell on a regular basis, but making beers designed for a specific event. Where you get together with me and we build a beer tailored for your event be it a wedding or keg you want to have on tap in your own Mancave. I have been a home brewer for almost 10 years, I also have managed many bars as a bartender. I know the beer world like it's my best friend. We have a great business plan the only thing we need is a little extra cash! My glorious, selfless, legendary, kickstarter friends help us change a bunch lives. The Glenwood community wants us to help them bring jobs and economic growth back to an area that once flourished with small fruit farms.

What will you do with the money?

1) Go big or go home. Buy a big boy 7 bbl brewing system. Which will give us the capacity to brew at least 1000bbl in our first year! 

2) I would tap that for sure. We have a crazy unreal location so better believe we will have a tap room! Put the tasting room up. Counter pressure growler filler. Vintage decor. Deck it out with nifty lighting, cafeteria style seating with our own personalized tables that we help make! 

3) Self-sustaining delivered beer. Acquire a few more bikes and keg trailers for our legged powered delivery team. We will hire, two more employees with bike knowledge and love to push our beer out to many bars in the Eugene/Springfield area!

Risks and challenges

"Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us.' We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, and fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be?" -Marianne Williamson.

Mancäve presently has no revenue, and still faces many challenges to opening. Circumstances like these often create money issues for such a young company. While I believe we've planned our financial situation and rewards very carefully, no start-up is immune to cash flow issues. Such circumstances could threaten our ability to deliver rewards, although I would do absolutely everything in my power to avoid such a situation. We want to make sure everyone gets what they put in on.

Every brewer that I know that I have talked to through out the years has said one thing, go as big as you can because you will out grow yourself and when you do you will have to sell your equipment. That I think is one our great challenges making sure we have enough equipment to keep the public happy.
