Week 1 Update
Good Afternoon supporters and Craft Beer the Board Game fans! What a fantastic week! Over $3,000 pledged toward the campaign! That's 15% of our overall goal! We're off to a great start.
THANKS FOR ALL THE SUPPORT!!! KEEP SPREADING THE WORD!!!
We have had over 25 individual supporters pledge this week, including 2 Sacramento area breweries, and one Craft Beer Bar. The experiences we've had this week with the Craft Beer community has been heartening. Thanks to all our friends and family who have backed us so far!
Tilted Mash Brewing Co, Elk Grove, CA - We had the opportunity to meet with the two brains behind the great hop-forward beers coming out of this 2016 addition to the Sacramento Brewing team. Co-owners Derrick Prasad and Johnathan Martinez have combined skill-sets to create a clean and inviting space with a line-up of intriguing beers. Their pledge to support us at the Art Lover backing level means they'll be receiving 2 copies of CBTBG in addition to their choice of original Beer themed artwork and photography. We noticed several great prints on their brewery walls already, and look forward to being able to add to their collection!
Flatland Brewing Co, Elk Grove, CA- Brothers Mohsenzadegan have put together an inventive operation and are have a passion for sour and barrel aged beers. Our experience at Flatland revealed flavors of an often ignored part of the palate: tart and funky. Their Apricot Tarte refreshed and delighted, while the Fieldburner Smoked Blondbier offered up a completely different, more earthy flavor. We're honored to have received backing from this innovative young brewery at the Art Lover backing level.
Bru Co Taproom & Bottleshop- Dreamers backing dreamers. Justin MacClanahan, his wife and their newborn are in the process of bringing a Craft Beer Bar & Bottleshop to Midtown, Sacramento. Talking with them at Sac Town Union Saturday, their passion for local Craft Beer was obvious and contagious. Justin's vision to bring a Craft Beer bar with a focus on regional beers is a long time coming, and we're happy to have their support at the Brew Master Party Pack level!
Craft Beer Game Nights and Events
We've had a busy week on the road! In addition to our Elk Grove adventure, we spent some time at Roseville's Monk's Cellar Brewery and restaurant, getting feedback from their head brewer, Peter. It is always great to taste new beer and hear another Brewer's perspective on our game! Further up the road, we enjoyed playing a few rounds with new friends on the spacious patio at Loomis Basin Brewing Company. We loved their *Alohawk American Strong Ale* and the sessionable *IPA Procastinator,*and look forward to bringing Craft Beer the Board Game back to their brewery or new gastro-pub soon!
Saturday, we joined up with the Sac Beer Enthusiast's canned-giving food drive at Sac Town Union to donate a deck of our Craft Beer Playing Cards and share the news about our Kickstarter. Our thanks to Quinn at Sac Town and the guys behind the SBE! Sac Town Union's newly released NE Style IPA - I'm an IPA guy was a perfectly juicy treat!
We're looking forward to connecting with more Craft Beer lovers and local Sacramento Breweries. Follow our Social Media Feeds to find out exactly where and when we'll be out and about!
