Who We Are
Saucony Creek Brewing Co. is a new distributing, craft brewery in Kutztown, PA. The brewery will be located in the old Saucony Shoe factory building on the banks of the Sacony Creek. Interestingly enough, the name was changed to Sacony sometime in the past century, however, we decided to keep the historical spelling of the name. Seeing that beer is made up of around 97% water, we thought it only natural to name our beer after the main water source in Kutztown.
Our goal is to craft and brew beers made with the finest and freshest locally grown ingredients. When we open, we plan to be distributing on tap at the Kutztown Pub, our flagship pub, as well as a few other pubs and taverns in the local area. There will also be a tasting taproom, socializing lounge, outdoor beer garden, and we plan to host events and create a social epicenter around the brewery to provide a platform for local artists, musicians, film makers, or just the casual board game between friends. We are starting on a very modest, nano-brewery system, with hopes that we can organically grow by genuine word-of-mouth.
Why You Should Donate and Support Us
We are fortunate enough to be working with an amazing and generous landlord, allowing us to be able to afford our location. Also, collaborating with locals and using seasonal products and processes has really helped us keep costs low. Unfortunately, we've hit a bit of an obstacle when it comes to equipment. Right now we are brewing on a basic home brew set up, but it prevents us from brewing completely local beers.
The Kickstarter project funds will go towards the completion of our brewhouse as well as the purchase of larger fermentation tanks allowing us to brew larger quantities of beer. This will be enough to support our tasting room, brews to go in growlers and provide product to the Kutztown Pub and other local pubs and taverns. The larger quantities will also help us negotiate with local companies to purchase mass amounts of grain as opposed to purchasing smaller quantities on a global scale.
With a donation to kickstarter, you will be pledging your support of all that our brewery stands for and helping us bring Kutztown to life again, one locally brewed beer at a time.
How to Pledge
To pledge your support, simply select the reward on the right and follow the steps to complete the process. You will need an Amazon account to finalize the pledge, but an account is free and easy to set up. Just as an additional reminder, your card will not be charged unless our project is fully funded ($10,000) by the April 23rd deadline.
Now, we know some of you may not have the means to support us financially and we completely understand. We will still give you a very big hug when we see you if you share our story and Kickstarter project with friends. Ultimately, this is a community effort and we want you to feel as though you’re a part of our brewery family, so your input is always welcomed and our door will always be open. We want you to have the ability to meet and get to know everyone involved in the process, from the local farmers, us as the brewers, the servers at the local pub who pour your pint, and your friends that enjoy the experience with you. Together let's brew a truly local beer from farm to pint.
