Trouvaille Brewing Company Crowdfunding Project | Trouvaille ( tro͞oˈvī) Brewing Company is opening a nanobrewery in Haymarket VA.
The story of Trouvaille Brewing Company (pronounced /tro͞oˈvī/) is really the story of four different breweries; Congressional Brewing, 2327 Brewing, Happy Hound Brewing, and Alba Garage Brewing. These home breweries have served as the incubator for the passion for great beer that we will bring to the Northern Virginia area. We honed our recipes in our garages, and over the past five years have produced a level of quality we believe will set us apart in a market that primed for more great beer. Our beer has won over 100 individual awards and garnered critical acclaim at both the regional and national level. We have perfected our craft, and are ready to bring our vision to Town of Haymarket
- Our ownership group brings a unique collection of skills to the Northern Virginia brewing scene, including management, engineering, and most importantly, award-winning brewing experience.
- We are a team of 5 experienced homebrewers with over 100 individual medals in competitions ranging from local to the national level.
- We have ample operations management experience, with an MBA and PMP certifications.
- The craft beer industry is a close one, built on community. We will coordinate closely and have the support of local breweries, ensuring a welcoming environment for our new business.
** IMPORTANT NOTE **
Annual and Lifetime Mug Club memberships are for the member and spouse. While only one piece of apparel will be selected, all discounts and related event perks will apply to both.
WHAT WE NEED
We are a group of five friends with a passion for great beer. We have a vision for an incredible craft beer experience, and we need your help to make it a reality. Opening a brewery is an expensive endeavor, and while we have put together a considerable portion of the necessary funds we want to involve our craft beer community to raise an additional amount we believe will ensure we can get from build out to opening day.
We know our community embraces small business, and truly values great craft beer. We are opening up our Mug Club to certain tiers, for either one year ($100) or lifetime memberships ($500), and even an opportunity to conceptualize, design, brew, and name your own beer that will be served in the taproom ($1000). We’re also offering a variety of swag options to ensure our backers are able to rep Trouvaille wherever they go.
WHAT WE’VE DONE SO FAR
At this point we own our fermenters, brewing system and have signed our lease. Demolition will get underway soon. We’ve begun the process of applying for all of our licenses and permits. Our design is complete and we’re moving forward.
HOW DOES YOUR MONEY HELP
Opening any business can be expensive, opening a brewery is even more! There’s a lot that goes into making a space and the beer inside perfect. We’re hoping to use the money raised through Indiegogo to allow us to purchase our initial order of apparel, glassware, and some furniture and fixtures.
