June Lake Brewing Update 12/10/2013
June Lake Brewing
Open June Mountain ~
Mountain Life Update: Mark your calenders because June Mountain Ski Area is set to open this Friday the 13th! We're really excited to get back up on the hill, so find us on Friday or Saturday for a little post ride/ski beer in the village.
Progress Update: our intrepid team of design professionals have addressed the comments that came back from plan check regarding our remodel permit and have resubmitted an updated design. What this means is we should hopefully have our final building permit by the new year, and will be able to start our interior build out in preparation for equipment acquisition (currently on order) set for late spring of 2014!
Beer Update: Our tasty "Not So Hoppy Holiday Ale" is back this year as one of our last pre-launch testbatches. Brewed with Pale 2-Row, Munich, Aromatic, Carmel/Crystal, Chocolate, White and Torrified Wheat malts, along with nutmeg, vanilla bean, fresh ginger, cinnamon, juniper berries, seeds of paradise, sweet orange peel, cloves, honey and holiday spirit. This 6.1% ABV beer is our favorite way to kick-off the holiday season, and it deviates from our rather hoppy disposition. Kickstarter Update: As you probably know from our MEGA barrage of updates and emails we gave it a valiant effort, but in the end didn't hit our JLBKickstarter goal. This means none of the pledgers are being charged, and even worse we won't be receiving any of those pledges. Overall it was a great experience and we accumulated 300+ new Facebook friends. That being said we're still starting this brewery, and have had 72 pledgers commit to over $10k of our original pledge amount. That's almost 50% of the amount reached during the campaign! So if you pledged to the campaign and you're still interested in fulfilling that pledge email firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll make this thing happen.
Thanks for all the support, and Cheers!
Here Here to Beer!
Last Day to Fund
June Lake Brewing
So it's the last day to support the JLB Kickstarter campaign and we're totally stoked on all of the support we've received from everyone. With Black Friday and the unabashed North American consumerism that accompanies it in full swing, we are giving it one last push to reach our funding goal. BuyBuyBuyBuyBuy!!!!
If you haven't pledged, and are able, please do so now.
Also share it with all your friends today - www.junelakebrewing.com
As previously indicated we set a pretty lofty goal on our fundraising campaign, and it's looking pretty far away as I type this, but we plan to start the brewery regardless (it may just be a little less shiny). With that in mind if we do not reach our goal we could still use your pledges, and would like to fulfill your desired rewards. If it's looking grim at the end of today, we'll reach out to each individual pledger and ask them to contact Justin - email@example.com (or 760-419-1738) - and fulfill their pledge/reward exchange in person, or via PayPal/USPS.
Thanks again, and Cheers! We couldn't do this without all of you!!!
Beer is Awesome!
Only 3 Days Left to Fund June Lake Brewing
Just around 3 days left to go with the JLB Kickstarter campaign, and we're pushing hard for our fundraising goal. Though it seems impossible we can still do this, but we'll need your help:
With this in mind Justin underwent a live IAmA at http://www.reddit.com/r/Beerit/comments/1rib16/hi_im_justin_walsh_a_california_craft_brewing/ this morning at 10am. What is an IAmA you ask? Well it's an online question and answer session (Ask me Anything) in which the subject states their background and what makes them a special and qualified person to speak and be questioned on a specific topic. In this case Justin posted the following intro - "Hi, I’m Justin Walsh, a California craft brewing entrepreneur about to open his first brewery. It's been a heck of a ride, ask me anything!"
Thank you for everyone's continued support, and of course... Cheers!
Only 15 Days
Left to Fund
June Lake Brewing
That's right we've only got 15 days left to reach our funding goal with the JLB Kickstarter campaign. This may not seem like a big deal, but the way Kickstarter works is if we don't reach our goal we don't get any of the pledges that have been made, nobody is charged their pledge amount and that means that those who have pledged will not get their snazzy rewards. So if you have been waiting to pledge, do it now and help us spread the word about our freakin amazing campaign. Also we really appreciate everyone that's shared our campaign with their network, but we're going to need you to keep sharing everyday until we reach our goal.
Thanks the mostest, and Cheers!
p.s. - did we mention you should support the JLB Kickstarter?
