Depot Bottom Brewery | Drink Better Beer.
Hello, I’m Chris Weitzel. I’ve been making beer at my home since early 2012, and now I’m trying to take the next step and move to a full production microbrewery. In the five years that I have been brewing, I have learned a lot about beer and beer production, as well as the wonderful community that surrounds the industry. It is my hope that with your help I can bring some of that magic to McMinnville, Tennessee and the surrounding area. By backing Depot Bottom Brewery, not only are you helping bring high quality local craft beer to McMinnville, but also allowing me to share the amazing world of the craft beer industry and home brewing with others.
What We Need & What You Get
Breaking into the beer business is costly, and I have spent the past 2 years researching and planning the best course for the brewery. We are asking for $35,000 to get us off the ground and producing beer. Close to $20,000 of that will go to the purchase of production equipment and necessary components to produce beer at a professional level. The remaining funds will go toward renovating the building for the tap room, home brew shop, and brewing classroom we plan to incorporate.
We have a large variety of backing levels, each with an awesome reward that goes with it. This is the best way to get Depot Bottom Brewery swag right now, and some of the items will never be available again. Personal Glass space is very limited, as is access to our V.I.P. Program! All rewards will be available for pick up at the brewery. (Exceptions will be available on a case by case basis for out of town donors.) All rewards will not be immediately available, as we are offering some exclusive, never to be made again items, and they will be ordered after our campaign ends. We will let everyone know when they can cash in on their awesome rewards!
Because of the wonderful way Indiegogo works, we will receive all funds pledged regardless of whether we reach our goal. Because of this, we will still be giving out rewards to everyone that backs us (So if you pledge, you get your swag whether we reach our goal or not! It’s a win-win really). With the funds we do receive, we will move forward the best we can and bring craft beer to McMinnville, and your support will help make that possible.
Speaking of support, we would love for you to back us, but if you can’t then please support us by spreading the word by sharing our page with your friends and family. Help us bring craft beer to McMinnville, Tennessee.
