      Congratulations Mike! The brewery is going to be awesome. I wish I lived closer to Milwaukee.

      Congrats Mike! A friend of mine thanked me to telling him about the campaign and said he can't wait to try some of the beers. I'm sure that sentiment is shared by many.

      Thanks SO much to all of you! This has been an amazing two months. I had so many events. To be honest, AKB, my plan for tonight it to collapse on the couch. I spent the day brewing, and I'm exhausted. :)

      Mike, With a little less than a hour left I hope you break $26,000 ;^)>>

      Can't wait to visit! Good luck!

      Would love to doodle up a design for an IPA. Always wanted to see my artwork on a local brew. Mmmm.... Hops!

      Not to be the fact police but Lucky Town is out of Mississippi, not Columbus.

    20. Mike Brenner Creator on May 25, 2012

      $20K would be nice. Most breweries on Kickstarter seem to hit $30-40K :)

    21. Thad Phetteplace on May 25, 2012

      I am thrilled to see the goal hit. I'm updating my facebook status with the good news. Maybe we can hit 20K before we are done. :)

      Congrats on achieving your goal Mike!

    27. Mike Brenner Creator on May 21, 2012

      Still working on the location, Steve. It will definitely be in the City of Milwaukee. I'm trying to iron out details now. :)

      Curious as to where you plan to locate the brewery.

    29. Mike Brenner Creator on May 19, 2012

      Will do Greg! Thanks for the support!

      Will you take a picture of said plaque once it is made so we can all bask in its glory even though we are far away?
