Barrelbackers

Startup NameBarrel Backers
What problem are you solving?America should have a place where people can come together in support of the amazing craft beers they want to get their hands on and experience.With 3,400+ Craft Breweries around the country creating great beers, people should have the opportunity to discover and appreciate them by joining together in voice with the support of technology.
What is your solution?Barrel Backers is a powerfulcrowdfunding & discovery community for craft beer.Craft beer fans from across the country are using Barrel Backers to rally around the beers they’re excited to drink. When enough people support a beer, an order is placed and the beer will be delivered to their doorstep!

Additionally, fans are also making their voice heard by submitting beers on their wish-lists and voting for the ones they want to see featured in the future.

There are a lot of talented breweries making amazing beers, but they are often hard to get at the local store.

We love great beer and believe people should have a place to join others in expressing their desire for a beer that may not be available to them. We’re thrilled to see Barrel Backers bringing people together around craft beer experiences in a new and innovative way!

How will you make money?We currently have two different offerings: 1 People select & pre-order individual beer campaigns which vary in price.
