New brewery turns to crowdfunding

If you’ve ever brewed your own beer, and wished that you had the cash to take it to a commercial level, then you’ll understand the dilemma that Tres Acton is facing. He’s had some strong success with his brewing over the past few years, and is looking to take his operation to the next level. The only problem – the costs.

Tres has taken a modern approach to sourcing some funds for this venture, turning to ‘crowdfunding’ website Pozible.com to see if he can drum up enough support from the beer-loving community to get his steampunk-inspired brewery off the ground.

My current set up is low-tech and low-capacity, therefore, I currently am unable to produce these beers in sufficient quantities for commercial sale,” Tres says. “I have shared a few of the beers with the owners of two inner-north pubs, and they are waiting for me to start brewing sufficient quantities for sale.”

If you’d like to be a part of helping a new brewery get started, check out the Acton Brewery website – or head straight to the Pozible.com page and pledge a few bucks. You’ll be rewarded for doing so, if the target is reached, as well.
