Startup brewery turns to crowdfunding
300 Suns Brewing is trying to raise $45,000 on the crowdfunding site Indiegogo.com by the end of April 19. According to a press release from the company, they are trying to open at a yet-to-be-determined location in the later half of 2013.
The brewers would like to created distinctive ales and also encourage home brewers to participate in at least six "pro-am" collaborations, where homebrews are produced by commercial brewers. Home brewers will submit their products for judging by 300 Suns patrons, who will select which beer will be produced and served by the brewery, according to the release.
300 Suns is trying to raise money to obtain a 7-barrel brewing system, according to the release. Depending on their contribution, donors will be recognized as a "300 Suns founder," receive merchandise like bottle openers or glassware or be honored on medallions built into the brewery's bar top.
The brewery will include a tap room and serve a small menu of locally sourced comfort food, culinary manager Jonathan Willett said in the release.
