Another brewery is hoping to open up shop here in the Cincinnati Tri-State area! They, like Braxton Brewing, have started a Kickstarter campaign to help them open up a brick and mortar location in Northern Kentucky near Alexandria or Cold Springs. The campaign is running now until Aug, 4 2016 with a goal of $30,000 with 60K and 100k being stretch goals. Back in 2014 Braxton managed to raise $71,885 to being their brewery project to life. With the beer community around Cincinnati I think that 30k for Alexandria is totally achievable.
The Story of Alexandria Brewing Company
Alexandria Brewing Company was envisioned by our Head Brewer, Andy Reynolds years ago. After two tours in Iraq, Andy found that the process of brewing different beers helped put his mind at ease. He took his love for brewing and decided to follow that path for his career. In 2015, Andy went to the Siebel Institute of Technology, America’s oldest and most respected brewing institution, to master his craft.
The reason we chose Alexandria, Kentucky as a destination for our brewery is that it is a close community where people still take the time to say “hello.” Andy’s wife, Ann, was raised in Alexandria. Together they own land, where Andy grew his first hops.
We envision Alexandria Brewing Company as a family-friendly establishment celebrating rock and roll, fun, and, the best beers around.
The main objective that all of us here at Alexandria Brewing Company agree on is to build a business that has integrity. This is a key foundation in all facets of ABC. Having worked in various corporate positions and seeing how some companies treat employees and consumers, we want to create an honest company that gives back and treats all people involved like we would want to be treated.
Alexandria Brewing Company will be brewed in Cincinnati tradition. Proudly made in Kentucky.
