Just because its the weekend and I love craft beer.
|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. Prices range from $35-65 per pack of unique beers most likely unavailable at the local store. 2 Subscriptions – Customers receive packs of great beers selected by our team. Plans start as low as $40 and increase up to $47 a month. This is excellent for people & office teams that want to sit back and discover new beers!
