Mack Brewing Co. Brewery launch

Hey Everybody,

My name is Dave Mack and I'm the founder of Mack Brewing Co. I started my company out of a love for craft beer and recognizing the lack of representation by people of color in the Philadelphia industry. Philly has an immense craft brew culture, rivaled by few cities. Seeing no black faces in these circles made me realize that there was opportunity to educate black consumers on the world of craft beer.

After taking time to perfect my craft, I developed an IPA that was very different from most IPA's on the market yet was truer to form of what an IPA should be. Using a unique blend of hops, I created a blend that still had the characteristics that most IPA fans adore yet was still a pleasant experience for your novice IPA drinker. As a bonus it pairs extremely well with a fine cigar and carries an ABV of 10%. My newest creation is a Lemongrass & Honey Ale with an ABV of 14%, with a smoothness that is unparalleled. 

So far I've been able to make the world aware of my brand by selling merchandise and giving away samples of the beer. So far I've received accolades from my growing support base which includes not only merchandise buyers but also publications such as Forbes, Uncap Everything,  and Align Magazine. In addition to those esteemed publications I've also been fortunate enough to have my brand appear on the website, programs such as Vibin' Heavy With DJ Caesar and appear on podcasts such as Afro.Beer.Chick Podcast as well as Brews & Banter Podcast.

After building so much momentum in the short time period of 2 years, I'm ready to bring my beer to the world...and I need your help. In order to officially package and sell my beer I must acquire a commercial location for manufacturing  and packaging as well as the correct equipment to meet the demands of distributors. To do this, I need to raise $250,000 to meet the costs of executing this dream.

For any donation up to $69, you will receive a Mack Brewing Co. sticker and a thank you note.
For everyone that contributes $70-$100, I will send out a 4 Pack of my IPA and a Mack Brewing Co patch as a thank you.
With a contribution of $101-$200, I will send a 4 Pack of the unreleased Lemongrass Honey Ale and a T-shirt.
For any donor who is able to contribute $201-$500, you will receive a 4 Pack of each brew plus a limited edition Mack Brewing Co sweatshirt.
With a donation of $501-$750, you will receive a 4 pack of each beer, a sweatshirt, T-shirt and patch.
For any donor who contributes $751-$999, you will receive a 4 pack of each  beer, a sweatshirt, a T-shirt, a patch, and a limited edition satin bomber jacket.
For any donor who contributes $1,000 or better will receive a 4 pack of each beer, a sweatshirt, a T-shirt, a limited edition satin bomber jacket as well as a special edition 4 Pack of a commemorative brew to celebrate the success of this venture that will never be released again.

With your help, I hope to share my joy of brewing with each of you and subsequently the world. 

Thank you for taking the time to read this far, and I hope you go a step further and hit that donate button.
