Brewvana Announces Kickstarter Launch & Party

Brewvana Kickstarter Launch & Party

If you have ever spent time at any of Portland's finer beer establishments, or breweries, you have probably run into a Brewvana tour at one time or another.  They have become part of the thriving beer culture Oregon is so well known for.  Well now Brewvana is looking to take their buses to the next level, and possibly expand tours into Washington. They need our help to do this though.  Details are in the press release below. 

Also if you have never been on a Brewvana tour, what's holding you back? There's always time to HOP on. 

From press release

PORTLAND, Ore. (September 16, 2013) - Brewvana Brewery Tours is excited to announce the upcoming launch of their Kickstarter campaign with a party at Hopworks Urban Brewery on Thursday, September 26th 8:00 – 11:00 p.m.

Brewvana has experienced steady growth during their first two years of operation, adding an additional bus, hiring more tour guides and increasing the number and scope of tours. The two-bus fleet is as essential to Brewvana’s business – transporting beer enthusiasts to and from breweries while giving them the ultimate craft beer tour experience – as water is essential to beer. With a successfully funded $10,000 Kickstarter campaign the buses will receive a cosmetic makeover - full decal wraps designed by local graphic artist Cassandra Stemler – as well as some under the hood work. A stretch goal of $25,000 has also been set that would allow Brewvana to obtain the permits and licenses necessary to extend tours into Washington and take longer trips to other beer-centric locals such as Bend and Seattle.

To kick off the campaign a launch party will take place Hopworks Urban Brewery on Thursday, September 26th 8:00 – 11:00 p.m. The all-ages party will be equipped to take donations onsite with donors receiving a raffle ticket for each $5 donated. Owner and founder Ashley Rose Salvitti and the Brewvana team along with the bus designer will be on hand, Kickstarter reward packages will be on display and pints of Hopworks beer will be $3 during the event.
