My name is Curt Keck, future owner and brewmaster of HiJinx Brewing Company. I have been crafting beer since 1995, both as a homebrewer, and a professional brewer. The desire to create HiJinx stems from my fierce passion for great beer. My late grandfather was one of my earliest fans and supporters. While we were sharing a homebrew, my grandfather said, “You should sell this stuff”. My response to him was, "It is my dream to open a brewery some day".  I've held on to that memory for 15 years and believe that the day has come to pursue that dream!

Using my professional and amateur brewing experience, I am planning on opening a small brewery that will produce hand-crafted beers for the craft beer consumer. HiJinx will provide a variety of beers to satisfy many tastes, with flavors ranging from the traditional to the exotic.

There are many details and expenses involved in opening a brewery. I have the knowledge and the passion parts covered but there are other things I need, like... equipment... licensing... insurance... space... blah, blah, blah.  I am sure you don't want to hear about all that mumbo jumbo, so I will be brief.

What I am soliciting/asking/begging of you is some help to make my dream a reality. Your generous pledge will go towards securing licensing, purchasing equipment, and making renovations, that will help bring HiJinx to life. The more money I raise... the more fermenters I can purchase... the more beer I can make. 

Here's how this kickstarter thing works: If the funding goal is met by the deadline, every generous pledge of $5 or more will be rewarded with some sweet HiJinx gear. The Larger the pledge the sweeter the reward. If the goal is met, we both win. If the goal is not met, you lose nothing and I am forced to drink all the beer I make.

PLEASE HELP THE TOMFOOLERY BEGIN

HiJinx Brewing Company needs you... Help us with funds... Get cool stuff!!!
