After my last kickstarter was such a surprising success, my friends and I have realized that people really want bitters in their lives.

We want to serve bitters and sodas from a cart in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. We have been doing a bunch of research into this, and we have decided that the best thing to do would be to build our own cart, and kit it out to make the perfect soda stand.

Bitters and soda is a great drink because it's delightful and refreshing, but it isn't full of junk. It's full of water and a few dashes of bitters.

The cart we have dreamed up will have storage for ice, a soda system that will allow us to bring six gallons of filtered soda into the field, and a speed rack for quick serving.

We need a bunch of materials to make it happen, including wood, bicycle parts for the wheels, kegs and CO2 tanks for the seltzer, and a cool paint job.

We need to raise $4500 to make this dream a reality, and summer ain't gonna last forever.

International orders should add $5 for shipping. Thanks!

That's about it. We think you'll really enjoy some of the ideas we have been ginning up for this cart, and we think it will help make Brooklyn a bitter place.
