Junkyard Brewing Kickstarting Their New Taproom

Junkyard Brewing in Moorhead has started a Kickstarter to fund a larger brewing system for their new taproom that will run through September 15th – LINK

From Junkyard Brewing’s website:

Help us build a bigger brewing system: Our Kickstarter project

August 19, 2014

junkyardA “Kickstarter” project is kind of like one of the pledge drives which you may remember from watching public television. The differences are: a Kickstarter is less annoying because we don’t interrupt what you’re doing, and the rewards are something that you really, really care about, maybe more than that Ken Burns documentary you were watching.

Here’s the way it works. People donate/pledge/give money to our project in exchange for a nice reward, like a shirt, sticker, keg fridge, or chance to brew a custom beer and have it served at the brewery. If we meet or exceed our goal, we get to keep the money raised and put it toward building a bigger brewing system, and we’ll send out all those awesome rewards. If we don’t meet the goal, the whole thing goes down in flames, so if you buy in and help us out, tell your friends to do it too.

We chose to do this project because we think there are a lot of people in the Moorhead and Fargo communities that want to see local breweries succeed. More importantly, we want people in our community to feel like they’re a part of the brewery, and helping out is one of the best way to make friends!

Here’s a picture of a couple of the dairy tanks we picked up to repurpose into the new 7 barrel brewing system. There’s till a lot of work to be done.
