About this project

WHO:
We are passionate beer geeks ready to take the leap into commercial brewing. Our company was founded in 2006 and we have since collected a complete15-barrel brew system and found an awesome location to brew our beer.

WHAT:
Craft beer that’s what! Our beers will be new and innovative and deal with ingredients that most people haven’t seen in beer yet. South Jersey has been behind in the craft brewed industry for too long. We will be the biggest production brewery to hit this part of the State in a long time.

WHEN:
We have everything in place to start brewing by December 1st 2011. The problem is we still need the packaging equipment to get our beer out into the world.

WHERE:
Vineland, New Jersey. Vineland is right between Philadelphia and Atlantic City. Our equipment found a home in an awesome 9,000 square foot warehouse in June. From the start we’ll have a tasting room and give tours so you can come see your money at work.

HOW:
YOU!! Help us get the final pieces we need to get going. We've gotten this far and are so close we can almost taste the beer!

This is what your pledge will help us purchase:
Keg washer/filler - $10,000
Bottling line - $15,000
Kegs - $5,000

WHY:
Because craft beer rocks and so does local business! We're advocates for great beer and cool businesses. Plans are already in the works to partner with local charities and use local businesses as much as possible. We also plan to utilize the vast agricultural resources that Vineland and South Jersey have to offer when selecting our ingredients. Business is not just about making money, but making a difference.

We realize in this economy asking for money is tough. Rest assured we’ll use your money wisely. It’s taken us 7 years to get to this point because we wanted to do everything right. Our plans are ironclad and we’re positive that the brewery will be a success.

So why kickstarter? Well simply because it’s the easiest way for us to collect smaller pledges from people that wouldn’t otherwise be able to invest. It gives us an opportunity to collect some dough, but also get our name out there and give away some cool swag.

Kickstarter is all or nothing. So if we don’t reach our goal by October 16, then we don’t see a dime.

STEP ONE: Sign into Kickstarter – All you need is an e-mail and to create a password
STEP TWO: Sign into Amazon (If you already have an account your one step ahead)
STEP THREE: Pledge $5 or more and your card will only get charged once we reach that $30,000 goal!
