Not too shabby, y’all! We’ve already met 31% of our fundraising goal just a few days after launching the campaign! How exciting is that?!

This is great news for a lot of reasons. We’ve had a seriously strong start. So many people have shown their enthusiasm for the project, told their friends about it, and started donating! Yay!

It’s also really wonderful because statistics show that reaching this milestone early means that we’re more likely to meet our fundraising goal. As you may know, Kickstarter is an all-or-nothing site. If we don’t meet our fundraising goal, then we don’t get any of the pledges you made. So we’re pretty happy that we’re matching stats.

I’m super excited about this campaign is because it’ll provide resources needed to tell this story well. That’s really important to me.¬†Craft brewers are artists; They pay attention to the fine details to make sure everything is excellent. I want to do the same while telling the story of craft beer in North Carolina.

This is incredibly exciting. I’m sure I’ll share more soon enough, my friends. That’s where we are right now: 31% and counting!

If you have questions or comments about the project, please let me know. Be sure to tell your family and friends about it so they can join our team of backers, too. Word of mouth marketing is so helpful!

Thank you, thank you, thank you for all of the words of encouragement. And for offering up your own cash to become a backer. It means a lot to me!
