The long-awaited Peddler Brewing Company is might close to opening their doors to the biking and beer-drinking public, but they’re asking for some help. They’ve started a Kickstarter fundraiser, and hope to raise $5,000 by Jan. 23.
The brewery is opening in the space formerly occupied by Maritime Pacific Brewing Company at 1514 Leary Ave NW, near the Ballard Bridge. Owners Haley Woods and David Keller have been building the space out since this summer, and are pretty close to opening, aside from some details that they hope to fund through the Kickstarter. According to the fundraising page, they’ve paid for all the construction and building costs out of pocket while working full-time jobs. “We truly are putting our heart and soul into making this brewery a reality. What we need help funding are the final start-up costs that get our delicious beer in your face and your bike back on the road,” they write.
They say the fundraising dollars will go to the following:
- Purchasing growlers and 32oz bottles with our logo for our growler/bottle exchange.
- Purchasing and installing a bike work station that will include a stand, tools, and a pump for public use.
- Purchasing and constructing furniture and glassware for the tasting room. We will be buying chairs and pint glasses to use and will be building the tables and bar for the tasting room.
