Kickstarter Report: Week 1 - Thank You!!
We are blown away with your support and thank you wholeheartedly!
As we watch our funding percentage grow, we are feeling more and more grateful! To our supporters, you’re the reason we’re able to be successful. We can’t wait to invite you up to the KBC Tap Room! The the entire Kent family, thanks you for your continued support and encouragement. This endeavor has been years in the making and we feel grateful for the love and support we have received.
Thank you to our amazing backers!
In the first week alone, we have raised over $15,000, and became a featured project on Kickstarter’s homepage! None of this would have been possible without the support of our friends, family, and amazing people like you! With over 100 backers, we are confident that we can crush our goal. With new rewards coming soon, we believe that we can raise up to $25,000 by the end of our campaign!
Update on Campaign Rewards
Sold Out: “Name a Fermenter”
The first reward to go! We wanted to give backers an opportunity to name our new fermenters so that we will always remember that our brewery was built with the support of the community. We are excited to see the names those backers choose!
New Reward: Trucker Hat
You asked, we delivered! As more and more requests for a hat reward came in, we decided to make an official Kent Beer Company Hat! Check it out!
Updated Preview of Other Rewards
Our graphics team has been busy prepping the artwork for the other rewards, and we've gotten a few samples back to share with you all! We hope you're as excited as we are to get these shipped out to you all. (Please note: Sorry! We can't ship the pint glass full of beer.)
Special Thank Yous!
Big Slide Creative who created the video for our Kickstarter Campaign. Your creativity, skill, and hard work has allowed us to share our passion with the world.
BZDesign who has helped build and get the word out about the campaign. Thanks for your continued support and awesome design and marketing skills.
Kent Farms, Family, and Friends for all your support and encouragement through this amazing experience. Without you, none of this would be possible. We can't wait to open our Tap Room to share with you.
And of course, our backers and supporters near and far that believe in our company!
Do you have questions/comments about rewards?
Please feel free to message us with any questions or comments and we'll respond as soon as possible. We've have a few backers ask to add multiple rewards to their donation. To do so, adjust your pledge to include the additional donation amount, then send us a message about which rewards you’d like to receive!
After the completion of the campaign, we’ll contact all backers to gather info about sizes, colors, shipping details, etc.
What’s next for the campaign?
Since we’re so close to our $17,000 goal, we’re aiming higher and shooting for $25,000. What will the extra $8,000 go towards? An extra fermenter! That means more beers on tap. We will also be able to increase the down payment we make on the equipment to lower the future lease payments.
Help us get the word out there! Send us your thoughts, share our posts, and encourage others to support the brewery by sending them to our Kickstarter page!
