Default LouBrew! A new Louisville nanobrewery!

Hey Fellow Brewers,

Long time lurker, I just recently started posting, but I've been following a lot of the electric brewing and brewery startup threads, HOURS of reading!

So I'll cut to the chase:

I am starting a new Louisville nanobrewery called "LouBrew" that will create brews with a hand-crafted, single barrel spirit. We will offer a continually rotating variety of unique recipes to satisfy every beer connoisseur's appetite. I am getting started with a unique fundraising tool called Kickstarter, where people can pledge to help Kickstart the project, support a new local brewery, and receive some great incentives too!

So if you are interested, check out:

Kickstarter and LouBrew.com for more info. You can also follow us on Facebook.

Thank you!
Jeremy

p.s. Sorry for the blatant promotion, but I feel you guys would want to hear about this!
p.p.s. I'll try to post updates all along the way (location scouting, rip-out, construction, first pours, etc.) on this thread, but definitely follow the FaceSpace as well!

I'll be following closely! How close to opening are you? Do you have all of the fun legalities out of the way?

First step: fundraising!
Second step: location and legalities! (while building of course)

I'm planning for October, but the ABC License and city permits could always clog the works, so October is very flexible.
I do however have a lot of stuff started: LLC, S Corp, Tax numbers, etc.

Excellent timing I am planning a Nano here in NJ and was just looking at Kickstarter yesterday.

Pledge is in.

I'll be sure to give you a plug on my Facebook page. Best of luck!

There seems to be an onslaught of people trying to start breweries on KickStarter now. With that in mind, it might be easier to try and raise the money locally. Since that will be your market for a long while.

And your white devil name has already been used by another brewery. You might want to clear that one. Although you could make a Collaboration not Litigation type of thing!!

Good luck. I wish you the best. And I hope to see your beers on the shelves by the time I get back to the states.
