Whether you are a beer drinker or not, the thought of a microbrewery sounds exciting. Can you imagine making your own beer? That is exactly what the guys at Ogma Brewery are working on.
The brewery is in the heart of Jackson, Michigan. But, it is not just your average beer making outfit. It is one that has community at the center.
Ogma is a unique joint where people can hangout. So, it is going to be about beer, but they will offer some dishes as well. Such as, Thai and Asian inspired dishes, soups and a wide-range of vegetarian options. You know, stuff that go down well with a pint of beer.
About the Founders of Ogma Brewery
Ogma Brewing has a team of three founders. Troy Crat, the head brewer, is passionate about the process of making beer. He spent years learning the ropes, from the ground up.
After volunteering at different breweries, he spent 8 years working in one of them. There, he learnt the importance of fermentation and how it affects the flavor of beer.
Another co-founder of Ogma Brewery is Andrew Volk. He handles the brand development and marketing. While Kevin Craft takes care of the project management of the brewery.
Together, the guys at Ogma are a powerful team. Essentially, they want to offer good beer that goes down perfectly.
The team set a goal to raise $35,000. So, they launched a Kickstarter campaign to help them bring their dream to life. While they already have the space they plan to use for Ogma brewery, they need funds for the equipment.
They want to create a place where people immediately feel at home. The space should comfortably hold 50 people. At the same time, they want to build a community around the brewery.
If you support the Ogma Brewery campaign they will use the funds for the beer. Through the Kickstarter, they plan to get a Quality Tank Solutions brew house with additional components.
The status of their campaign:
They have raised $29,000 already. They have enjoyed a lot of support from the community. Their first milestone was for $25,000. Next, they have another milestone for $35,000.
