Lucid Brewing LLC was founded on the premise of providing a high quality, drinkable craft beer which appeals to both connoisseurs as well as the general consumer. We craft our beer with the enthusiasm and creativity of painter and the precision of engineers. We work our a$$es off so that you can drink a pint (… or six…) of the smoothest, freshest, most unique craft beer in Minnesota. Our motto: Clarity in Thinking leads to Excellence in Drinking.
Eric and Jon, the founders of Lucid brewing, started as homebrewers about 13 years ago. Each took the hobby seriously enough to have beers win medals at state fairs and regional competitions. The best part about being a homebrewer is the creativity you put into every batch of beer and the community that supports the hobby. The creativity that goes into hombrewed beer is incredible! Have you ever had a saffron -lime lager? It’s awesome! Beyond the wealth of creativity, homebrewers are very supportive of each other. At regular meetings there are always a large group of members willing to give you feedback on your beer and help you with recipes.
As we’ve begun this adventure upgrading from hobby to professional, we are finding more and more that the pro community comes from the same cooperative mold. Whether it’s tips with how to deal with inspectors, boiler requirement engineering, or where to get a great deal on printing, professional brewers are inviting and forthcoming with information. We wouldn’t be where we are today without the jumpstart from the homebrew clubs and the help of the professional community.
Our KickStarter Project:
Lucid brewing is a dream come true for two homebrewers. We know that there are many more homebrewers with the same dream to start a brewery, but the overhead and complexity of getting one built is often overwhelming. Now that we’ve been through the process we have lots of information to share. We want to repay the kindness we’ve received by helping more hobby brewers become professional and by allowing other pros a place to experiment with new recipes without affecting their bottom line. The funding we raise from Kickstarter will be used to upgrade our brewery to include a tank and electronic equipment that can be used by these two communities. A place where pro and amateur brewers can openly interact and collaborate on limited release batches of beer.
This equipment will help kickstart the brewery dreams of homebrewers by allowing them to train and work on large scale equipment side-by-side with skilled professionals. With the help of Lucid Brewing, a homebrewer can test the waters of professional brewing without the overhead of operating an entire production brewery. For the professionals Lucid will act as an outlet for their creativity by giving them the opportunity to experiment with small production batches. But we need your help!
