Yard Owl Craft Brewery

$41,058

    What happens when two best friends come together one a chef and the other a winemaker? Well, they brew the best damn beer you have ever had! Kristop and James started brewing beer in the kitchen (while 5 kids were running around) and quickly realized that their combined strength's in chemistry and recipe making along  with their passion for beer made for a really good brew! So, they  opened a brewery in a little shed in James' backyard. Since the opening the beer has been selling to quick to keep up with the demand and this is where our Kickstarter project comes in. Yard Owl is moving to a bigger and better location which will have a tasting room and more importantly MORE BEER!

Here's a list of the minimum amount of equipment and supplies for what we need to get the new brewery open-

  • brewing equipment                                                   $7500

  • water filtration system                                               $3500
  • refrigerator for displaying beer                                  $1200
  • Build out the tasting area bar & kitchen                     $3500
  • seating and tables                                                      $2750
  • sinks for brewery and tasting bar                                 $750
  • ovens for tasting area                                                  $750

  • renovations and decor                                                $5000
  • bottles kegs, growlers & tap handle                            $5000
  • Yard Owl merchandise                                               $1500
  • Square register system                                              $1500

Risks and challenges

The most challenging aspect of our brew is the time it takes to get to the shelves. We are dedicated to creating a beer that is not rushed. It is bottled and let to rest for a period of time. During this rest time, it develops more complex flavors and carbonation. If our project is realized, we will have an opportunity to brew larger batches and give our beer the time it deserves.
