Look at it this way. If you go on a brewery tour, you can pretty much expect that you are going to pay more for merch at the brewery than you would if you bought it at the local Walmart. That's the way I look at your gathering.

Looks good. I'd drop a $20 bill for a shirt and free beer.

$20 for a tshirt is typically more than what I'd spend, but if it's marketed as $20 for a tshirt and a couple of quality beers I'm in every time.

Care to share that american wheat recipe?

I am having a tasting party this weekend and am planning on selling the shirts. So my question is...what would you spend on this shirt? I did some searching and most established brewery t-shirts go for 18-25 dollars. I was hoping to sell them for 18-20 dollars. What do you think? I know I can always get some honest opinions from HBT! Thanks!Al
sell the shirts as close to cost as possible... i see it as cost effective marketing... the more shirts you get out there the more patrons you may see.

It looks like a quality t-shirt. I'd have no problem paying 18-20 in an established brewery for one. But since is a pre-opening deal and it's family and friends, I'd sell them for $15, then $20 once you open your brew pub.

Tasting party in Ventura this weekend. Hey, I'm gonna be in Ventura this weekend.

Two Trees is a great local name btw. I also like how your logo resembles those vintage fruit crate labels from the area.

As for $20 for a t-shirt, I am a cheap bastard and refuse to spend more than $10 on a t-shirt. That being said, if you allow for the beer tasting, it doesn't sound unreasonable.

Glad you picked up on the fruit crate label theme!! That is exactly what we were going for since Ventura county has such a strong agriculture history.

The tasting is already full We invited the world thinking half might show up. Nope. Almost everybody wanted to come. So now I am going to have close to 100 people in my backyard But become a fan on FB so you will know when our Oktoberfest party is! Cheers! Al

Well the tasting party was fantastic! Sold the shirts for 20 bucks and almost sold all 40 of them. I gave a few away for free to friends who helped with the brewery. I guess people didn't mind paying a little extra considering they were getting 6 beers on tap for FREE!! Cheers. Al
