We created a Discord channel! This will allow you guys to communicate with us directly on various topics. Maybe you have an idea for a new beer style we should try, or want to give us feedback on some artwork. We have a few different channels to direct your communications, but you can always suggest more for us to add. Please note that you must post in the “#become-a-fan” channel to get added to the ‘@Fan’ role – which allows you to see more channels (this helps keep bots from spamming the important channels).
Batch two of Lieutenant Dan had a really smooth brew day. This cream ale will satisfy your beer crushing needs. We haven’t locked down an exact bottle date yet, but keep your eyes on the social media for updates.
Our Zacca Sesh is coming along. It is looking like bottle day will be on August 11th. This batch will still be in the 22oz bombers as we finish off our stock of those bottles (getting close to the 500ml switch soon).
Our next brew day is one of our most sought after beers… Applez N Sht (batch #4)! This beer will not stick around long, but also won’t be showing its face for some months (womp womp). Based on feedback from past batches we are changing up the recipe a bit. We are hoping that these changes can bring out more of the barrel staves that you guys have asked to be more present.
We have had lots of interest from potential investors, but we thought it would be best to post this here for everyone to see (as it is taking a good bit of time to respond to everyone). After some lawyer advice – we are only able to consider “accredited investors” at this time. This is due to security checks, fees involved, and other legal garble that’s out of our expertise (that’s why the lawyers get the big bucks). We are researching what we can do for “non-accredited investors” that are interested in investing, but we do not have all that information yet. Once we have locked down those details we will post it here for everyone. We are also looking into what we can do (from a legal standpoint) for a sort of ‘sponsor’ slash ‘mug club’ type of deal – but we are brainstorming what we want to offer still.
If you are not sure what the term accredited investor means then here is a snippet from investopedia.com:
“Accredited Investor Requirements: To be an accredited investor, a person must demonstrate an annual income of $200,000, or $300,000 for joint income, for the last two years with expectation of earning the same or higher income. An individual must have earned income above the thresholds either alone or with a spouse over the last three years. The income test cannot be satisfied by showing one year of an individual’s income and the next two years of joint income with a spouse. The exception to this rule is when a person is married within the period of conducting a test. A person is also considered an accredited investor if he has a net worth exceeding $1 million, either individually or jointly with his spouse. The SEC also considers a person to be an accredited investor if he is a general partner, executive officer, director or a related combination thereof for the issuer of unregistered securities.
An entity is an accredited investor if it is a private business development company or an organization with assets exceeding $5 million. An organization cannot be formed with a sole purpose of purchasing specific securities. Also, if an entity consists of equity owners who are accredited investors, the entity itself is an accredited investor.
In 2016, the U.S. Congress modified the definition of an accredited investor to include registered brokers and investment advisors. Also, if a person can demonstrate sufficient education or job experience showing his professional knowledge of unregistered securities, he is also considered an accredited investor.”
