Just warm enough for Eric to enjoy a Braven White in a Bushwick backyard. This will be your new favorite beer.

Merry Christmas from the Braven Brewing Company family to yours!

Eric and Marshall were interviewed for Monocle about Braven’s humble beginnings and the interviewer even sat in on one of our brew sessions. Have a listen.

THANK YOU!

Eric and I want to express our sincerest gratitude to all of you who backed us during our Kickstarter campaign! We raised $23,060 from 243 backers - that’s 15% above our goal of $20,000.

What’s the next step, you ask? Well once the funds are transferred to us, we’ll purchase all of the amazing prizes that you’ve earned (which should be early next week). Depending on some of the printers, we should have all of the merchandise within 2-3 weeks, at which point we will request your mailing address. Then we’ll pack up your goods and send them your way! We really can’t wait to get all of these items in your hands.

So much more on the way that we don’t have time to get into right now, but rest assured, things are moving forward very quickly these days. With lots of bars and restaurants clamoring to get our beer already, we are working on brewing bigger, faster, and better to get everyone our beers as soon as possible. Thanks again and stay tuned!

Cheers,

-Marshall & Eric

Finish Line Party

As our Kickstarter campaign comes to an end, we are throwing one last party where you can sample our Braven Black and Braven White beers, enjoy some of NYC’s finest burlesque, score free shots of Sailor Jerry Rum, and boogie down to the best rockabilly around.

Join us next Tuesday, November 19 at 9:30 PM at Passenger Bar for our Kickstarter Finish Line party (RSVP here). The campaign wraps up 24 hours from this party, so we need all of your help with the final push towards our goal.

So far the Braven Brewing Company Kickstarter campaign has been nothing short of amazing. Midway into Week 2 and thanks to you we already have over 80 backers and reached over 60% of our goal! And the reception from our friends and the Brooklyn brewing community is better than we could have imagined.
 
Check out the latest stellar write-up from Bushwick Daily - 5 out of 5 stars for Braven Black and Braven White!
 
Despite the great start, we still need to hit $20,000 for Braven to move forward, and we need your help to get us there. With your support we will hit our goal this week. Don’t wait to donate - pledge here to bring brewing back to Bushwick!
 
 
Cheers,
- Marshall & Eric

Braven Brewing Company is releasing their fall seasonal beer, Dia, an orange, habanero, chocolate stout and they want to share it with you at Passenger Bar. 

In the spirit of Dia de los Muertos, they encourage everyone to dress in black and white to honor the dead. There will be a facepainter on-site to put you in the Mexican ghoulish mood. 

DJ Neville C. will be spinning the best in surf, punk, funk, Latin rock and hot rod, all wax - all night.

Get there early as samples of Dia are limited. ¡Viva el Braven!

RSVP here.

Eric toasts you! Thanks to everyone who has pledged so far. Our mini-goal is to reach the halfway point by this evening. We’re about $800 shy of $10,000. Can you help make this possible?

Kickstarter Launch party a smashing success!

Thanks to everyone who came out to St. Mazie last night! We had a brilliant time and we hope you liked Braven White and Braven Black as much as we enjoyed serving them to you. If you weren’t able to make it out to the party, check out Bedford + Bowery’s review of the party here.

Braven’s Kickstarter Goes Live - Help Us Bring Brewing Back to Bushwick!

Finally – our Kickstarter campaign is here!

From the first time we fired up a brew kettle, we knew there was something special about brewing beer together. Brew days felt like holidays – time spent hanging out, catching up while crafting one-of-a-kind beers to share with our friends. We’d talk about how amazing it would be if one day we actually went for it and opened up our own brewery.

Guess what. That day is today.

We founded Braven Brewing Company with the shared vision of bringing brewing back to Bushwick, a neighborhood once home to dozens of breweries, producing millions of barrels of beer annually. We’re inspired by the traditions of the past, energized by the spirit of Bushwick today, and with your help, we will be the first brewery in Bushwick in over 30 years.

Starting a brewery is no small task, but we aren’t afraid of a challenge! Right now we’re able to make Braven on a small scale but the money we raise through Kickstarter will help us jump to big time production so we can brew enough to distribute to everyone who wants to get their hands on our cans.

You can help in two ways:

1. Donate! Head to our Kickstarter page to check out our video, see the awesome rewards for pledging, and contribute. Every dollar helps and we appreciate your donation, as much or as little as you want to give.

2. Share! You can help us get Braven’s story out there and tell the world about our dream of bringing brewing back to Bushwick. Tell your friends and family about us on Facebook, Twitter, email, postcards, whatever! OK maybe not postcards.

Years after that first batch, brew days still feel like holidays, and we hope that each sip packs a bit of the excitement and love we put into designing and creating every single beer we make. The countless hours we’ve spent working together on Braven haven’t felt like work at all. It may sounds cheesy, but we finally get it – it doesn’t feel like work because we’re following our dreams.

But now, we need your help to turn our dreams into reality. Let’s make this Kickstarter a success and get Braven to the next level.

Please donate, share our story, and know that this next toast goes out to you – Cheers!

-Marshall & Eric
