Highlighting the Best of Tennessee Through Viking Beer
Our city of Columbia, Tennessee, is perfect for a brewery. Our town of 35,000 supports our mission by packing our 400 square foot brewpub every night, plus, we have produce from dozens of local farmers at our disposal. This allows us to grit our grains to order from local farmers, then roll and crush them, which is the way Vikings brewed for 200 years. If this didn't differentiate us from our competition, the fact that we sit on the Duck River, the third most biologically diverse river in the world, does. So we're not just a farm-to-barrel brewery -- we're also a destination for ecotourism.
We Feature 35 Guest Taps + Food Trucks
At $60K in Monthly Taproom Sales, it's Time to Expand
We're currently in the planning stage for two brand new breweries in Columbia. The first, a 10-barrel system with on-site equipment, is next door to our current location and will allow us to brew our own beers. The second will be across the street and will hold 5X as many customers and have 3X as many taps as our current space. From there, we have plans to expand to Pulaski, a city 30 miles south, allowing us to distribute Asgard beer in Giles County without going through a distributor. Our future plans don't involve selling out to a larger beer conglomerate, but they do involve the strategy of bypassing distributors by opening brewpubs across Tennesee.
Our Progress So Far
With a successful raise of $500k on Wefunder, we'll spend the majority of the investments on completing the build-out for our new taproom, then be able to hire full-time staff in marketing and production brewing, buy inventory and raw materials, and increase our working capital. If we hit our maximum raise of $1M, we'll also be able to buy all of the interior brewing equipment and significantly more inventory.
