A little over a year ago, I was enjoying a weekend BBQ at our home with our family and friends. It's in our nature that where ever we live, our home becomes a gathering place. You know, the house on the block where everyone hangs out. On that beautiful Saturday afternoon, we were all enjoying the day. As I paused and looked around the BBQ, I saw my one-year-old use my sister as a monkey gym. I watched my three-year-old stare in wonder into her Godmother's eyes. I witnessed my 76-year-old Dad having a deep conversation with a friend, 40 years his junior. I watched my husband race my five-year-old, serve ribeye to our friends and enjoy a glass of craft beer, all at the same time and never spilling a drop.
As I took it in, I realized that our friends — from school, from our new neighborhood, and from the old — were family. All as important to us as our parents, sisters, brothers and kids. Just as I smiled, my husband Jonathan looked at me, handed me a glass of beer and gave me a little wink and smile. I took a sip. At that moment, I knew what I wanted to do. What I had to do. In that pint glass was no ordinary craft beer. It was actually my beer. A beer that I brewed myself just a few weeks before. And in that moment, I founded Three Weavers Brewing Company.
Now one year later, I am so excited that I can barely find the words I want to share with you. Three Weavers Brewing Company is no longer a proud idea on the tip of my tongue. It is my new passion. It is my friends, my family, my hard work and my creative soul. All bottled and ready to share. Three Weavers is more than a beer, even more than a brewing company. Three Weavers is the very embodiment of our kids, our family, our friends and our community. It embodies all that we share our lives with.
Today, Three Weavers Brewing Company is proud to be among the first woman owned craft breweries. And we are even prouder to have our very own brewmaster, Alexandra Nowell, at the helm. Alexandra, at only 28, is an award winning brewmaster and together we are excited to bring our Three Weavers community to you.
In our very important first year, Three Weavers has embarked on the constuction of a production brewery and tasting room in Inglewood, California. We even got to brew some collaboration beers with our friends at Noble Ale Works in Anaheim, CA and Golden Road Brewing in Los Angeles.
With our passion, our ideas, and of course, our amazing beer, I hope you, the Kickstarter community, will join us in building our dream brewery.
Three Weavers Brewing Company. It’s more than beer. It’s community.
Three Weavers was created with one goal in mind: create a community through beer. Our community is not defined by physical walls, but by gathering with friends and family over Three Weavers' beers in our backyard, at our kitchen table or even in our Tasting room.
From the beginning the tasting room has held the heart of our brewery along with our notion of community. We want to give our community a place to gather. We envision a space that nurtures all friendships, old and new. A place that allows us to support local artists and non-profit organizations. Our tasting room will weave together our beer, our community and the arts.
One Friday night a month we will sponsor a non-profit organization selected by the Three Weavers staff and Three Weavers Imperial Pint Glass holders. Check out our website for details.
Low Cost Gallery Space for Artists
We want to promote local artists through our brand and tasting room. The large walls of the tasting room will be designed to showcase art. Three Weavers compensation as a gallery will be a fraction of what today's galleries charge. We want the artist to be compensated for their art.
Additionally, we will be holding an annual art contest for local artists to create artwork for our beer bottles. The winning artist selected by Three Weavers staff and the Three Weavers Imperial Glass holders, will receive compensation for their artwork as well as kick off the current year's art shows. Runner-ups in the annual art contest will be given an opportunity to have art shows throughout the year. Check out our website for details.
We've acquired the equipment and the team necessary to make our brewery successful. We have dedicated 1200 sq. ft. of our 11,300 sq. ft. production facility to the brewery's tasting room. Three Weavers will begin brewing in May and the tasting room will be ready to serve you in June pouring the freshest Three Weavers beer you can get. In addition to our core line up of beers and seasonal releases, we will also have offerings that will only be found at the tasting room.
Funds will be used to implement the design by Jeremy Taylor Designs. We asked Jeremy to use as much recycled and repurposed material as possible. The minimum of $25,000 will allow us to get a great start on the space. It will fund the construction and installation of the bars, taps and cold storage. It will also cover the cost of lighting and construction of our tables and benches. Lynne just got a great deal on beautiful vintage bowling lanes that will be incorporated into light fixtures and table tops. Jeremy is stoked!
Did we mention that we plan to have some outdoor space? Almost unheard of in Sunny Southern California, right?!? If you find us worthy and we fund more than our initial $25,000, we plan to spend the money on:
- Extra special design details like recycled doors for wall texture.
- Construction of our outdoor seating area/deck.
- Outdoor Picnic tables and chairs.
- Cool landscaping to make the area lush and nice.
We have some really great rewards heading your way, check them out!

The Three Weavers Team
Currently, we are a small team with a lot of drive and big dreams. Lynne Weaver is the founder of Three Weavers, with a background in finance and a passion for craft beer who has decided to turn her love of homebrewing into a business. Lynne has the dedication and energy that is crucial to building a craft brewery, but sought someone with experience in the brewing industry to join the team. Enter Alexandra Nowell, a seasoned brewer with west coast flair, drawn to the Three Weavers project by a desire to build something great in an emerging craft beer scene. She's worked in craft breweries of all sizes, and even has a few national awards under her belt. All Alexandra really wants to do it create great beers, and if she can make a few people happy in the process, then that's awesome too.
Risks and challenges
We're covering all the bases. We've done all of the research and planning. We have filed for the permits required to open our tasting room, and we've hired the right professionals to build out the space. That being said, there are certain parts of this process that are ultimately out of our hands. However, we will do everything in our power to keep this project moving forward to an on time and scheduled opening. There will be beer made, and there will be a space to share it in!
