About

Who Are These Plumbers?

We are makers, scientists, artists, programers, and dreamers. We are serial skill collectors. Driven by a passion for what we create and what we learned along the way. 

We want to share our obsessive collection of skills and knowledge with anyone willing to join us. Two Plumbers Brewery + Arcade is how we plan to do that. All our brews will be hand crafted, made from the best ingredients we can track down and our styles will range across the board. To us, the best thing about a small scale brewery is the ability to make whatever crazy off the wall beer we can think of. Don’t worry though, we know the value of crafting the perfect fallback beer. That old faithful you can drink anytime because it always tastes great. Especially after your friends talked you into trying something new and exciting.

Two Plumbers taproom will be more then just a place to drink, it will be stuffed with your favorite classic pinball and arcade games, especially the one you are thinking of right now. We are also designing and building our own hand crafted wood cabinets, made to look right at home in a tavern setting. You won’t find any emulators in our cabinets, we only use vintage arcade boards and each cabinet will have the appropriate button layout. Creating the perfect balance of vintage feel and playability with updated aesthetics and durability.

With your help, in spring 2016, Two Plumbers Brewery + Arcade will be there for you to enjoy in St. Charles, Missouri. A city, that right now, is pinned under the boot-heel of an oppressive empire of canned lager and bland flavor.

Kickstarter, this is a call to anyone who loves craft beer, vintage arcade cabinets and just making stuff. Help Two Plumbers save the princess and create a place for everyone to drink beer and play games.

What Will We Do with the Money?

  • Equipment and Supplies - We have the tools and knowledge to build our arcade cabinets and much of our brewery equipment but we need the raw materials. 
  • Professionals - We have a wide veriaty of skills but we don't know everything. Your donations will help pay the pros when we get stuck. 
  • Tutorials - We want to share everything we are learning while getting this brewery off the ground. We will make a series of free tutorial videos. 
  • Make the Rewards - You're helping us live our dream, you should get something in return. 
  • Part 2: The Search for More Money - To be completely honest, we will also use this money to secure a business loan. We have excellent credit scores and professionals walking us though this process but the banks don't loan money unless you already have some. 

Rewards

Risks and challenges

Is there really anything worth doing that doesn't have risks and challenges? We don’t think so, and with any new business there are risks. Is the exhaustive research that went into our 30 page business plan correct, will people actually come to the brewery and what if a freak lightning storm fries all of arcade games while simultaneously sending our brewmaster back in time? There are a lot of variables you know.

We figure the greatest risk for backers is that most of our rewards are being made by us and we could have underestimated the time it will take to make and ship everything. We’re pretty gosh darn obsessed with hitting deadlines though. On the other hand, some of our rewards are coming from third party vendors. There could be delays on those rewards too but it’s a wide world we live in so we are pretty positive alternative methods can be arranged if something goes wrong. By the power of Greyskull you will get your Two Plumbers stuff.
