Beer Kind Brewing, a new brewery-in-planning coming to the Town of Tonawanda, has launched a new Indiegogo campaign with a goal of $15,000.
Money raised will go towards furnishing the taproom with tables, games, TVs, and communal-style seating. Rewards include stickers, koozies, pint glasses, shirts, tickets to their soft opening, a chance to be Brewmaster for Day, lifetime Pour Club membership and more.
“Startup costs to open a brewery are extremely high,” the brewery posted to Facebook. “We have secured funding and purchased the brewery equipment; however, funds are needed to help furnish the taproom to make it a space people will love. With your help and support, you can make our dream a reality! Where else would you rather be than right here, right now, helping open and support Buffalo’s next great brewery!”
“We understand not everyone can contribute, but that doesn’t mean you can’t help in other ways! Please get the word out and help make some noise about our campaign! Tell your family and friends about Beer Kind Brewing and our campaign and post to your social media accounts.”
The brewery will operate with a 5-barrel electric brewhouse from Ultimate Brew Service in Lima, NY, which will allow them the capacity to brew 155 gallons, or 10 kegs, of beer, each batch. The taproom will also feature a self-pour tap wall including craft beer, seltzers, New York State wine, liquor, cider, and non-alcoholic beverages, as well as a light snack menu to start.
They are targeting a fall opening. Stay tuned to https://www.facebook.com/BeerKindBrewing for updates.
