Help Support Oyster Creek Brewing Co

Welcome to Oyster Creek Brewing Company's GoFundMe Project Page. This started as a guy with an appreciation for good beer. Then he began to make his own beer and well… he was pretty damned good at it. It evolved from an occasional hobby, to monthly brewing sessions, to a passion and then into a dream of opening our own brewery. Over the past 10 years, we have shared our beer with our friends and family. The amazing feedback we received has fueled our desire to brew and driven our aspiration to share our unique recipes with a broader audience. And hey, if we can make a living doing it, all the better. Oyster Creek Brewing will be a "nanobrewery", which basically means that it is smaller than a microbrewery but bigger than our back yard. We will have a small brewing area in the back and a taproom up front where customers can sit and have a drink or fill a growler to take home to enjoy. Most importantly, we will concentrate on producing small craft batches of the unique recipes that we have developed over the years. Our products will also be gluten-reduced to accommodate those who are gluten-sensitive in a way that preserves taste and quality. I know what you're thinking, "I want some delicious, high-quality beer! How can I help?" Oyster Creek Brewing Welcome to Oyster Creek Brewing Company's GoFundMe Project Page.

I know what you're thinking, "I want some delicious, high-quality beer! How can I help?" What am I investing in? Well... it turns out that opening a brewery isn’t cheap, so here is where you come in. All the money that we are able to raise on GoFundMe will go towards licensing, rent, quality ingredients and some nice shiny brewing equipment. Everyone knows that the shinier the equipment, the better the beer. We’re not going to explain how GoFundMe (or shiny-ness) works, because they have a FAQ section for that. However, the more you donate, the better your reward. Some expenses that your contribution will help pay for: 1. Federal and State licenses and permits: about $2000 2. Fermenters: $1500 3. Refrigeration: $7000 4. Kegs, Brewing Supplies and other Equipment: $5000 5. Rent and Utilities: $3000 6. Marketing and Additional expenses Why should I fund this? If you choose to support us, not only will you be helping us to achieve our dream, but you’ll help start a new business, and most importantly, you'll help create a source of high quality ales distinct to the Southern Ocean County area. Please visit us on Facebook and and like our page. Lastly, there's rewards for your contribution! Donations of $50 or more will receive an Oyster Creek Brewing Co. T-Shirt and Pint glass Donations of $100 or more will receive an Oyster Creek Brewing Co. T-Shirt, Pint glass and 64oz Growler Donations of $250 or more will receive an Oyster Creek Brewing Co. T-Shirt, Pint glass, 64oz Growler and an annual VIP membership which gives its member a free first "tour" with every visit
