About this project

Our Mission : to put handcrafted sodas made with real and fresh ingredients in the hands of our local community.  We focus on making complex flavors with minimal ingredients.  Creating old fashioned favorites like Root Beer, reminiscent of childhood, while also developing new and unique sodas such as Apple Cream.

Our Flavors :  Old Fashioned Root Beer, Cherry Cola, Cream Soda, Pumpkin Spiced Root Beer & Apple Caramel Cream.  Flavors in the works - Ginger Ale & Lemonada.

Purpose of Kickstarter: with the funds received by you, we will be able to bring our soda to many local grocers, restaurants and farm stands.  Currently bottling, capping & labeling by hand allows us to produce only a very limited amount of soda, about half the actual demand. We sell our sodas at the Greenport , Sayville and Port Jefferson Farmers Markets as well as at My Butcher, located in Wading River, NY.  We have many other merchants interested in selling our soda, but have been unable to bottle enough to meet this demand. These funds in addition to our own & family investments, will allow us to buy a bottling & capping machine, which will bring Rock Island Brewing Co. to the next level of success.

Risks and challenges

Rock Island has thankfully only faced a limited number of challenges and demand is definitely not one of them. We have successfully created tasty, natural, caffeine, gluten and high fructose free carbonated beverages. Our only challenge so far has been the inability to meet demand. The addition of a commercial bottling & capping machine will help to ensure Rock Island's future success.
