Our Craft Beverage Fund supports budding local brewers, distillers and winemakers.
Because we’re a nonprofit, we can give tastemakers extra help with uniquely designed terms to grow their boozy business. We can accept offbeat collateral like grapevines or bottle labels, and help beverage makers get more funding for better equipment or the freshest, more high-quality ingredients— so they can craft every sip.
This type of supportive of financing is making an impact across Appalachia, including in our home Pennsylvania and neighboring West Virginia.
Charles Bockway at the Brilliant Stream blog also did a great breakdown about what makes a craft beverage project promising to nonprofit funders like us.
