Covington Brewery Raises More Money on Kickstarter than Any Other Brewery Ever
Still wondering what kind of impact Braxton Brewery might have on Downtown Covington?
If the new company's success on Kickstarter is any indication, it's going to be massive.
Braxton broke the all-time record on the online crowdsourcing site for the amount of money raised by a brewery, raising $71,885 through 654 people. The campaign, targeted at raising $30,000 to fund the “Taproom of the Future,” hit their goal in just 34 hours, and surpassed previous record holders Tributary Brewing ($65,565) and Modern Times Brewing ($65,471).
“We’re beyond excited and humbled at the support from both the Greater Cincinnati and Kickstarter communities,” said Jake Rouse, Co-founder and CEO. “We never imagined the campaign to go so well, and can’t wait to share the space with everyone.”
Just two days after the Kickstarter launch, Braxton had raised tens of thousands of dollars. When it opens next year in the former Covington Arts Building, Braxton promises to be about more than beer.
