The Levee Brewery And Pub, Valdese NC

The Levee Brewery and Pub, Valdese NC | Build a brewery and pub in Valdese!

So What’s It All About?

Hi folks, I’m Peter Skelton, an expat Brit living in the US, following my passion to open up my very own brewery and pub here in Valdese, NC. I’ve wanted to start a brewery for a good few years, and once I found myself living in Valdese, I knew that this was the place to do it.

Tucked into the foothills of the Appalachians, Valdese is a great little community full of friendly people, so naturally it’s crying out for a pub. Pubs are where friends are met, ideas sparked, philosophies born and where revolution foments. Valdese is a town born from its own unique history and ties, and as I have my own unique history and ties I’m just the man for the job.

How Can You Help?

So far I have my location secured and most of my brewhouse is here too. I am looking to raise money to cover the outstanding costs of construction in the building, install a couple of other necessary pieces of equipment – a high power hot water heater and walk in refrigerator – and buy furniture like tables and chairs.

I am setting my target at $12,000, which breaks down as follows:

  • $3,000 for construction work
  • $2,000 for the water heater and associated plumbing
  • $3,000 for the walk in refrigerator
  • $2,000 to fulfil perks
  • $1,000 to buy furniture
  • $1,000 for legal assistance with ABC permitting

I’ve been lucky enough to meet a lot of excited folks in person, so there’s a possibility that we might go past our target. In this case, I will be able to purchase a small can filler sooner than currently planned, so you’ll be able to get our beer to go in cans, and I should be able to get my live music plans going faster as well.

As for the perks, if you’re anything like local the best of the bunch is the Mug Club membership. You’ll get your own personal numbered pint glass which we store for you, early access to special release beers, invites to members only events and possibly some other cool stuff which I haven’t thought of yet. If you want to be a part of the inside club, this is the way to do it.

A lot of the perks include T-shirts. Now T-shirts will be on sale as part of our regular merchandise, but the shirts we’re offering through here are exclusive and will literally never be offered again to anyone ever. They will be specially designed to make it clear that you not only support us, but supported us from the very beginning for the ultimate in bragging rights.

Like the shirts, the custom glasses will also be a one of a kind item, specially made so you can show your support. And as we have our glassware sandblasted rather than printed, the sign of your support will not age or fade, but will stand the test of time.

If you have your own aspirations of a career in professional brewing, then maybe our option to come and brew your beer on our pilot system is for you. You’ll get to bring one of your own recipes (within reason – if you need ten pounds of Nelson Sauvin then we’d need to talk), we’ll scale up the recipe, brew a batch on our pilot system and put the beer up for sale in our tap room. It’ll be great fun for us, for you and for all your friends to come and see – and taste – the end results.

What Difference Will You Make?

Throughout this project it has been a focus of mine to do business with local providers whenever I can. For example, I have been working with the folks at the Valdese Stitchery to design and produce our T-Shirts, as I strongly believe in spending my money locally and investing into my own community.

If you support me in this campaign, you will be helping me realise a years long dream, getting yourself involved in a community based and focused effort to bring an awesome new public space into Valdese, and possibly most importantly you’ll be allowing me to follow this career path to support my own young family. 

By supporting and championing local business, you keep your money in your own local economy where it does the most good, essentially you invest in the place you live and make it better for yourself and your neighbours and together we all succeed.
