Yesterday morning, with 16 days left to go, we broke our $25K goal on Kickstarter. We’re obviously rather excited about this, and we’re extremely thankful to everyone who’s helped us get here. You guys rock. With more than two weeks left, we now have the opportunity to set some stretch goals for reaching higher levels. Here’s what we have planned for the additional funds:
- $30,000 – Our first 50+ kegs. We wil be able to buy 50+ sixth-barrel kegs. All backers who have pledged over $200 will be given the opportunity to name a keg (name will be displayed on the side of the keg). We have a longstanding tradition of naming inanimate objects, and this is an opportunity to see your creativity in action. Obviously we have veto power, as we’d rather not have a keg named “[Insert Bar Name Here] Is The Absolute Worst Establishment Of All Time Oh And By The Way This Beer Sucks” showing up at [insert bar name here].
- $35,000 – Repurposed machinery bartop. We will be able to build our bar, which will feature our building’s relic of a conveyor belt (a leftover from its days as an Italian market). No, the bar will not be a conveyor belt; the non-functional machinery will inset into the bar under a glass countertop, complimenting the modern-industrial feel of our taproom.
- $40,000 – Giving back to Braddock, somehow. If we make it this far, we want to find a way to give back to the Braddock community. We’re still trying to figure out the best way to do this. We don’t want to just put it into a charity, as we’d rather put it towards something tangibly beneficial… more info to come soon.
Once again, thank you to everyone involved so far. We’re one step closer to getting this thing off the ground.
