Four Fires Meadery | Help us build our taproom!
Who is Four Fires Meadery?
We are just four friends who love to make the best, and most unique meads that we can dream up. We all met through a mix of home brew clubs, local beer tastings, and events. It wasn’t long before we all realized that we appreciated high end craft beverages, whether it was mead, beer, whiskey, etc., and that we all had a passion for making or experimenting with them. Through that, we all became really good friends and started brewing and making mead together. It’s been about 3 years now, and about a year and a half since we decided to take the giant leap and go commercial.
Creation Through Collaboration
Our motto is “Creation Through Collaboration,” and it is with this guiding principle that we seek to come up with unique, bold, and flavorful recipes. Our focus is to develop a broad range of flavor profiles from simple and elegant to outright insane with nothing being off limits. With an extensive barrel program in the works, barrel shares, and eventually a sour program, you can be sure there will be an endless flow of rare, unique, and special meads.
For those of you who have been following us over the last year and a half, you may have noticed that we have done several collaborations with breweries, and even a distillery. Awesome things can happen when people get together to create. So we intend on continuing these collaborations and can’t wait to see who we get to work with in the future.
The Impact Of Your Generosity
Our ultimate goal is to have a full functioning taproom/bar, with a large, rotating selection of our meads on tap. As soon as it’s feasible, we will also work to bring in a large selection of beer, and also liquor for mead cocktails. Our taproom will be a great place to bring friends, enjoy live entertainment, and have a bite to eat with frequent food trucks. The layout of our facility is set up perfectly for this to happen….unfortunately, it only has one restroom, and no air conditioning. This is where you come in!
We have already secured enough funding to complete the production portion of the facility, as well as a majority of the taproom, but we need your help to complete the build out. With only one restroom, the capacity of our taproom will only be 14 people. With the addition of a second restroom, that capacity will jump closer to 50….so a second restroom is absolutely critical to our success.
As for the HVAC system, we have recieved multiple quotes in the $11,000 range. The taproom itself stays at a reasonable temperature when empty, but as soon as we fill it with people and kegerators, air conditioning will be a necessity.
Your contributions will go towards these two large, critical items as well as any incidentals with finishing the taproom.
