CraftHaus Brewery looks to Kickstarter to launch a Vegas craft brewery
March 27, 2013
(Las Vegas, NV) – CraftHaus Brewery is banking on support from the crowd funding website, Kickstarter www.kickstarter.com. Since its launch on April 28, 2009, over $500 million has been pledged by more than 3 million people, funding over 35,000 creative projects. CraftHaus is looking to raise $20,000 to give their start-up brewery a “kick.” This is the first brewery of its kind to call the Vegas valley home, as it will not offer gaming or a restaurant. “We want to focus on the beer, not offer distractions from it,” said Wyndee Forrest, Owner.
Their Kickstarter campaign will launch simultaneously at The Great Vegas Festival of Beer, www.greatvegasbeer.com on April 27th in Henderson, NV and run for 35 days. Kickstarter is an all or nothing funding platform, so if the $20,000 goal is not met, there will be nothing earned. Donation levels range from $5.00 to $5,000 and rewards are offered in gratitude. Rewards include merchandise, membership to their loyalty program, design and name your own beer. If the goal is met, the funds will be used for purchasing a pilot brewing system, local licensing, and 5% of the proceeds will go to the newly formed Nevada Craft Brewers Association.
CraftHaus Brewery is a production brewery with a taproom where locals and visitors can see exactly where their beer is coming from. Better yet, they can sit down with the people who make it and get the backstory of what is inside their glass. “Beer has a story to tell, and so do I,” said Dave Forrest, Head Brewer and Owner. The brewery also plans on thanking their community by giving back 5% of proceeds from a designated tap handle to local non-profits.
