Why crowdfund a private business? You've got a good point, we've covered 99% of the start up costs for the brewery, however, starting a brewery has been described to us as a bad onion, once you pull back a layer, it's rotten and just keeps going. There's no boiler-plate way to open a brewery, especially rural Nebraska. Plus, the Federal permit process can take anywhere from six to eighteen months. To even apply we had to be a day away from opening, we had to have equipment purchased, lease signed and be fully incorporated; then wait six months to see if we can brew beer. We would certainly appreciate any help bringing this placemaking establishment to life.
Flight Club will offer a one time gift of at least $539. This gift will assist with capital expenses and create a runway-fund for the company until it can turn a profit. Flight Club who donate at certain levels will gain additional perks. Perks are listed below. All Flight Club donors will be displayed near the entrance of the taproom.
Flight Club donations will only be accepted prior to opening. Once the first pint is poured, this club is sealed in stone.
