  • Expecting to produce and sell approximately 174 barrels in 2022



Lowell, Oregon

A historic town poised for expansionEdit

Located in beautiful Lane County, Lowell is a historic and family-oriented town that was established in the 1800's. The town sits on the north shore of the Dexter Reservoir and the Middle Fork of the Willamette River, and is a popular recreation area for people from nearby Eugene and Springfield.

Until now, there's been no craft brewery-tasting room in the area. Locals have to travel over 20 miles outside their town for a craft brewery experience; the community does not have a place where they can gather together. With only two other restaurants serving the area, the town needs a place where people can meet for great beer and food.


A microbrewery with a unique indoor/outdoor environment and food from rotating local food trucksEdit

Arable is committed to always being fully transparent in our business practices. During the site-planning phase in Lowell, we discovered that the infrastructure available for lease cannot support the daily functions of a production brewery. We have identified a site in Eugene that is move-in ready and can sustain a production brewery. We plan to have our brewery/production site in Eugene, along with a temporary tasting room.

Once the infrastructure is available for us in Lowell, we plan to open our tasting room in downtown Lowell.

The tasting room in Lowell will be the cornerstone of what will soon become many other retail businesses with the same goal: to breathe new life into the town. The city administrators also have plans to add residential real estate, markets, restaurants, and retail locations.

Arable will fulfill a need in Lowell for an open-to-all craft brewpub. Local residents will come to enjoy their hometown ales just as their town is starting to grow. Just as importantly, the tasting room will give the town a place to call its own.


A year-round drink, food, and event spaceEdit

The beerEdit

Founding Brewmaster Chris Archer will manage the brewing process. Chris plans to brew a variety of beers, including IPAs, stouts, pale ales, porters, lagers, Belgians, and sours.

The spaceEdit

We will be able to bring the community together in the family friendly environment that we will create in both our temporary tasting room in Eugene and our future tasting room out in Lowell. The 25–30 seat front of the house (with additional standing room) will be complemented by additional outdoor seating, which will be covered and heated for year-round use.

Our concept is clean and simple, with a lived-in natural feel that elevates the beer, fosters community, and nurtures a connection. We will establish Arable’s tasting room in Lowell as a destination spot for locals and tourists alike to visit.  We also plan to work with the food truck community to set up rotating trucks to provide food at the tap room.

On-site eventsEdit

Additionally, events are essential in promoting economic activity and building off new or continuing initiatives—they bring the community together, and also encourage people to spend money locally. Events show outsiders that the community is alive; things are happening and people care. We plan to have events, events, events!

  • Trivia nights—These are very popular and have shown an average sales increase of 20%
  • Movie nights
  • Meet the brewer/tasting
  • Brew with the brewer
  • Live music
  • Brewery tours
  • Beer release night
  • Pint card—similar to a coffee punch card
  • Mug club
  • Dollars off—to go growlers
  • Local events in the Lowell area

Off-site eventsEdit

Arable plans on building a mobile tap unit. Once we have opened the tasting room out in Lowell, we plan to stage the tap unit at the lake during special boating events and local events in town to serve our beers. We will also be able to set the tap unit up at other festivals around Oregon. This will help expand Arable's visibility to a wider market base.

We have hosted numerous "pop-up" sample tasting events that were very successful. We have a growing fan base that are always excited to try what we come up with next; our last event drew approximately 100 guests.

Business modelEdit

A community-focused business modelEdit

The vision of Arable is centered around the community of the tasting room and on-premise sales. This will allow the business to have an immediate and direct connection with its patrons. The company will derive sales from the sale of beer, wine, food, and merchandise.


The company will sell high-gravity and low-gravity beers. High-gravity beers include IPAs and stouts and will be sold for between $6 and $7. The average cost of goods sold percentage for high-gravity beer is roughly 12%. Low-gravity beers include pilsners and lagers, and the company will sell them for between $4 and $5 per pint. The average cost of goods sold percentage for low-gravity beer is roughly 8%.


Arable will sell wines from local Oregon wineries, with a rotating selection of 3 or 4 varieties. It will sell the wine by the glass with an average price of $8 per glass. The estimated cost of goods sold percentage for this revenue segment is estimated to be 37.5%

Food and non-alcoholic beverages:Edit

The company will not have a full kitchen in the tasting room, but it will offer a variety of cold foods, bags of chips, and soups and chilis. Once we have opened the tasting room out to Lowell, Arable Brewing will also work with the Dexter Lake Club’s Rattlesnake BBQ restaurant to provide several of their pre-made sandwiches. The average cost of goods sold is expected to be 80%.


Arable will sell branded merchandise that includes t-shirts, sweatshirts, hats, and stickers. The average price of merchandise will be $30.  



Operations planEdit

Locations & FacilitiesEdit

The company will lease one space in Eugene that will house both its brewhouse and the tasting room. This unique model will give patrons the ability to be “in the brewery” while drinking the beer that was brewed there. Once the infrastructure is available for us in Lowell, we plan to open a tasting room in downtown Lowell, creating a destination spot for locals and tourists alike to visit.  

The Eugene site is virtually move-in ready. Arable will need to make a few leasehold improvements to the space totaling $21,500. The company has submitted an LOI to the property landlord, and will have an executed lease for the property before the closing and disbursement of the start-up financing.


The founders of Arable will solely handle the operations of the business in the first year of operation, with the exception of part-time seasonal tasting room staff. In his position at the Eugene brewery, Ninkasi, Chris operates a brewhouse and cellar of the same size on his own. He also manages the beer from conception to packaging. With this knowledge, Arable feels confident Cam and Chris can manage every aspect of making beer from start to finish while ensuring the highest quality.

The company will hire the following additional staff:

  1. In year one, Arable will hire two part-time seasonal tasting room staff members between June and September. Tasting room staff members will serve beer, handle cellar operations, clean up, work at events, and provide general labor.
  2. In year two, the company will hire a part-time cellarman, who will handle fermentation, cleaning the tanks, transferring beer, and racking beer. It will also hire two part-time seasonal tasting room staff members between June and September.
  3. In year three, Arable will hire one full-time and two part-time tasting room staff members. It will also hire a full-time cellarman.

Equipment & toolsEdit

Arable Brewing will purchase the furniture, fixtures, and equipment that it will need for its operation. The total cost of these items is expected to be $142,550 and includes everything needed for both the brewhouse and the tasting room. The furniture, fixtures, and equipment that will be purchased includes:

5 barrel brew system 5 fermentation vessels Steam boiler
Glycol chilling system Cold storage unit/under-counter refrigerator for tap room Draft system for pouring beers to customers
Keg Washer Process hoses Glass cleaner for tap room  

The above are examples of the high-level capital purchases that we will need to make in year 1.


Arable will not be partnering with any third party distributors. We will only self-distribute draft beers to selective establishments and collaborative partners. Third-party distribution is expensive, and they do not have the brewery's best interests in mind.

Financial planEdit

Key assumptionsEdit

The assumptions used in the creation of the financial forecast are based on the extensive firsthand experience of the founders. Two of the founders have 16 years of experience working in craft breweries, with both having worked at the largest brewery in the region. The owners have used this experience to develop the realistic revenue, expense, and profit projections found in the forecast.

It was assumed that the financing would be received and assets would be purchased before month one of the projection period. The financing, asset purchases, and working capital can be seen as beginning balances on the balance sheet.

In order for Arable to be successful, we must be able to produce top-quality beers of all styles. An essential part of being able to make that happen is a quality brewing system. This will allow our team to have better temperature control and yield better volumes. This will require capital to purchase the necessary equipment. This is a list of top-level equipment essential to our success. This equipment pricing was an average of prices from the brewery supply website probrewer.com.

Building the Arable Brewing brandEdit

Targeting Eugene and surrounding areas in Lane CountyEdit

According to the United States Census Bureau, Lane County is home to 373,340 residents with a median annual household income of $52,426 and a mean annual household income of $70,956.

Arable Brewing will target the city of Eugene along with rural areas outside of Eugene. This target area includes the communities of Eugene, Oakridge, Lowell, Dexter, Pleasant Hill, Creswell, Fall Creek, and Winberry. According to census data, these communities have a combined total population of 190,453 residents.

The largest age segment of the target area and the county overall is the 65 and older segment. The second-largest segment is made up of residents aged 55 through 64. Concerning the market segments for the bar industry, 26% of the population in the target area falls into the highest consuming age categories for the industry.

Once the infrastructure is available for Arable, we plan to lease retail space in Lowell. Lowell is a historic and family-oriented town. Established in the 1800s, and incorporated in 1954, the town sits on the north shore of the Dexter Reservoir and the Middle Fork of the Willamette River. The most used route to Lowell is along Lowell Bridge, a covered bridge that crosses the reservoir from Oregon Route 58. Lowell is surrounded by three reservoirs, respectively Dexter, Lookout Point, and Fall Creek. This makes the town a popular recreation area for people from Eugene and Springfield. From 2000 – 2010 the population grew by 188 people, with the median age being 39 years.

Once Arable is able to open their tasting room in Lowell, we are certain the tasting room will be the cornerstone of what will soon become many other retail businesses with the same goal: to breathe new life into the town. The city administrators have plans to add residential real estate, markets, restaurants, and retail locations. Administrators also have plans to improve sidewalks and streets, enforce codes and determine the most efficient ways to attract other businesses in the area.

New housing subdivisions have also been approved in recent months, continuing Lowell’s population growth efforts and indicative of the region’s increasing popularity.

Because the city of Lowell is currently working on their Urban Development plan to revitalize downtown Lowell, we see a great opportunity here.

There are 10,000 vehicles that travel HWY 58 on average daily (Oregon Flow Map 2019), 1,200 vehicles that travel East Main in Lowell on average daily, and 100-150 vehicles that travel on N. Moss and N. Shore on average hourly, Arable has a great opportunity to bridge the gap for those wishing to enjoy world-class beers of all styles.

Alcohol industry analysisEdit

According to the research firm IBISWorld, the bar industry is on track to generate revenue of $25.1 billion in 2021. The industry is expected to grow at a compounded annual growth rate of 1.1% through 2026. Demand for the industry’s services is affected by the overall level of disposable income in the country, per capita expenditures on alcohol, and the overall health consciousness of consumers. Growing incomes and a robust economy both drive revenues for the industry.

Breweries are expected to have sales of $30.3 billion in 2021, with craft beer accounting for 16.6% of the industry’s revenue. The Brewers Association defines craft beer as beer produced by breweries that generate fewer than 6 million barrels annually and are at least 75% independently owned. IBISWorld reports that craft beer sales have grown exponentially in recent years, and growth is expected to continue.

According to the research firm Nielsen, craft beer drinkers tend to be males between the ages of 21 and 44 who earn between $75,000 and $99,000 annually. Women are also consuming craft beer, though, with 79% of women surveyed reporting that they enjoy a craft beer every month.

Oregon is home to 312 craft breweries that produce 859,780 barrels of beer annually.


Arable will be well-situated to serve these core groupsEdit

  • Local workforce
  • Weekend local community out for an evening of entertainment
  • Tourists visiting Lane County and the Willamette Valley
  • All those visiting Dexter, Lookout Point, and Fall Creek
  • Travelers on HWY 58. A highly traveled route to Oregon camping, snow sport areas and central Oregon which is considered the outdoor activity mecca of Oregon

Unique opportunities that occur weekly, monthly, and annuallyEdit


  • Dexter Reservoir is a very popular destination for boaters, swimmers, hikers and nature walks.
  • Lowell state recreation site
  • Dexter lake farmer's market
  • Blackberry Jam Festival - a time for music, food and fun. We are excited to be able to be a part of this annual event. This event has an annual average attendance of 1500 people.
  • Columbia Drag Boat Association and Arizona Drag Boat Association annual boat races. Drag Boat Racing
  • Oregon association of rowers
  • HWY 58 is a highly used route year around. Travelers heading to the Cascade mountain ranges looking to camp, mountain bike, ski and snowboard. HWY 58 connects the valley with eastern Oregon; we will be the only craft brewery in route between Dexter/Lowell and LaPine.
  • There are 7 campgrounds in nearby Fall Creek Recreation area.

Based on these opportunities, the above examples together represent a pool of more than 50–60 potential customers per weekday.

With that figure doubling upwards of 100–150 potential customers per weekend days. Due to the expanded population accessing the nearby campgrounds and utilizing the lake, we feel our peak season will be the summer months. Although the winter months are generally slower for volume sales industry wide, Arable will have the advantage of benefiting from travelers that are heading to nearby winter sports. We will also be pursuing any opportunity to involve ourselves in the thriving outdoor community.

  • Willamette Pass skiing and Snowboarding events
  • Disc golf events
  • Mountain biking events
  • Columbia and Arizona drag boat racing events
  • Whitewater rafting and kayaking events

Marketing & salesEdit

Marketing will be grassroots based, rather than more expensive mass marketing. Arable currently has a strong social media presence, both on its Facebook and Instagram pages.

  • Arable Brewing Co/Facebook (508 likes)
  • Arable Brewing Co/Instagram (377 followers)

Arable has also developed a dedicated website. The website provides information about the brewery and will be updated to include the location and hours of the facility. The website will also be search engine optimized to drive organic traffic to the site. The website development has been completed by a friend of the company’s founders. The company will continue to strengthen its presence online over the next three years.

Arable Brewing plans to reach out to the local e-newspaper in the Lowell area, the HWY 58 Herald. It will also advertise in the Eugene Weekly that is distributed to over 856 locations in the Willamette Valley area.

After Arable has expanded and opened a tasting room in Lowell, we plan to broaden our visibility by sponsoring one of the local disk golf teams, sponsor a drag boat during the races and even sponsor a rowing team.

Arable will also collaborate with other breweries in the state to expand our draft reach and our brand recognition. This will allow Arable to be served in many already established breweries like Coldfire Brewing in Eugene and Reach Break Brewing in Astoria. We have also agreed to collaborate with Boneyard Brewing in Bend.


Filling a need in the Lowell communityEdit

Currently, locals have to drive 20–30 minutes for a craft brewery experience similar to what we will be providing:

  • Family friendly
  • Pet friendly
  • Partnerships with local vendors to provide fresh, local ingredients for our recipes
  • Great beers served on-site
  • Fun, unique tasting room vibe
  • Unique outside seating  

Current alternativesEdit

Currently there are no other breweries, brewpubs, tasting rooms in Lowell. Arable will be the first small-batch, microbrewery to have a tasting room in Lowell. Lowell is located 21.6 miles away from Eugene.  

While the tasting room is located in Eugene, our competition will be several local breweries; Ninkasi, Claim 52, Hop Valley, just to name a few which are currently operating under a very different business model and vision. Most, if not all of the breweries located in Eugene and surrounding areas are fighting for shelf space. Because Arable's business model does not include distribution, we will not be in that same fight.  However, in the future, we will look into self-distributing draft and packaged beer to local and craft-focused bottle shops and markets.

Once the tasting room has opened in Lowell, our competition will consist of other local establishments that sell beer for immediate on-premises consumption. These include:

Dexter Lake ClubEdit

This bar offers beer and cocktails and an outdoor patio in Dexter, 2.7 miles outside of Lowell. It also has an affiliated barbecue restaurant attached. The restaurant serves barbecue chicken, pork, brisket platers, and sandwiches. Food prices range from $8 to $32.

Buckhorn TavernEdit

This establishment is located 3.3 miles from Lowell and offers domestic, import and craft beer, cocktails, and food. It is open for lunch and dinner and features video lottery machines and pool tables. The tavern services a variety of food, including appetizers, seafood, burgers, and sandwiches. Food prices range from $4 to $12.75.

Hilltop Bar & GrillEdit

This establishment is located 10 miles from Lowell in Pleasant Hill. It offers a variety of beers, including craft IPAs, pilsners, and stouts. It sells growlers and twistee cans so customers can take beer to go. Beer prices range from $5 to $12. Its food menu is extensive and includes small plates, sandwiches, soups, salads, and entrees. Food prices range from $7 to $26.

Round Up SaloonEdit

This establishment is located in Creswell, roughly 18 miles from Lowell. It offers a few craft options, Mirror Pond, Hefewizen, in addition to several domestic beers; Budweiser, Bud Light, Coors, Coors Light, PBR and Busch Light. It has a small food menu consisting of pizza, burgers, and appetizers. It also offers nightly dinner specials. Its food prices range from $7 to $9.50.

3 Legged Crane Pub & BrewhouseEdit

This establishment is located roughly 24 miles from Lowell. 3 Legged Pub brews onsite, strictly Casked Condition Ales. They serve lunch and dinner items that include soups, salads and burgers. Food items range in price from $4 to $15.

The CornerEdit

This is a local bar and grill located in Oakridge. The establishment is roughly 24 miles from the proposed location of Arable Brewing. It serves lunch and dinner items that include burgers, burritos, and sandwiches. Food items range in price from $6.95 to $9.95.  

Our advantagesEdit

  • Quality Process and Ingredients: Our beers will be of the highest quality and include only the finest natural ingredients. We will be creating a large variety of classic and innovative beers that will appeal to a wide range of palates. We will use fine North American two row barley malt in addition to imported German and Belgian specialty malts, generally regarded as among the finest malts in the world. We will use hops from the Pacific Northwest as well as hops from all over the world to create many different styles.
  • Handcrafted: Our beers are stored in small 5 barrel batches (155 U.S. Gallons) under the close personal attention of our brewers.
  • Location: Being located close to Dexter reservoir and in close proximity to local farms; we will be able to embrace agriculture, wine, and the recreational amenities around the reservoir. Partnering with local farms, we will be using only the freshest quality ingredients.
  • Working with the local farms to host beer and food pairings. Such as the Arable Drink and Food Festival.
  • Because of our smaller volume expectations and the fact we will not distribute or ship any of our beers across state lines, we will not be held to the same strict government expectations. We will not have to get the label art or beer names approved by the TTB (Alcohol and Tobacco and Trade Bureau).
  • We will be able to respond to customer favorites as well as introducing new and innovative styles. Due to our smaller size, we will be able to have more control and flexibility in the beers we produce. Bigger breweries do not have this ability due to distribution contracts and batch sizes.
  • We don't want or need to be the biggest brewery. Beer nerds love the unique idea of a small brewery using guerilla marketing and word of mouth advertising. Exclusiveness is an effective marketing strategy.
  • There are so many breweries opening up every day across the country. As of 2020, there are 8,764 craft breweries in the U.S. In order to separate ourselves from the rest of them, we need a "niche". Our "niche" is small batch, on-premise craft beer.

Vision and strategyEdit

Producing and selling 5,394 gallons of beer in 2022Edit

With a planned opening in Fall 2022, Arable expects to produce and sell approximately 174 barrels (5,394 gallons) of beer in 2022. We expect to scale to approximately 261 barrels in 2023, and 320 barrels in 2024. We will achieve this growth through on-premise sales of draft and specialty bottled and can beers. In years 2 and 3, we will look into self-distributing draft and packaged beer to local and craft-focused bottle shops and markets.

Company historyEdit

Cam, Chris and Amy's dream of starting a brewery together was born about 6 years ago. We bought a 1 barrel "nano" brewing system to develop recipes and of course, enjoy the delicious beers we would be making. From Cam and Amy's garage, we have produced over 100 different beer recipes over the last 6 years.

In October, 2019, we applied for a rural area's "fermentation development incentive program". We were awarded the incentives through grants funded by the "urban development program" for this area. We had begun the process of improvements on the building we would occupy. We were given the green light for a SBA guaranteed loan from a local financial investment bank. The ball was rolling...

Then COVID-19 hit. We almost immediately felt the affects of the pandemic. The financial investment bank pulled the green light. Who could blame them? Why would they feel comfortable investing in a "hospitality" start up when the hospitality industry had basically been shut down?

As a team, Arable decided to pause on planning in hopes the pandemic would ease. During this time, we continued to brew beers on the "nano" system and even hosted a couple of very successful sample tasting "pop-ups".

During this time, we were contacted by Jerry Valencia, owner of Bridgeway Contracting.

He shared with us his plans to develop retail space in the downtown Lowell area. We had a meeting where he shared his vision and plans for urban development in the Dexter/Lowell area. We were impressed with Jerry's vision to further develop Lowell. After hearing his plans we realized it all aligned with what Arable was hoping to create.

There has already been extensive work on the infrastructure of Lowell. For example:

  • Improved water and sewer system
  • Improved K-12 school infrastructure
  • Multiple housing developments are currently being built

Arable's tasting room will be occupying the first retail space that is expected to be completed in the Spring of 2022.

The enthusiasm and excitement we have received from the local government and residents is a perfect indication that Arable's model is a good fit for the community. We look forward to being the cornerstone of the area's urban growth process.

We have a limited operating history upon which you can evaluate our performance, and accordingly, our prospects must be considered in light of the risks that any new company encounters.

The Company is still in an early phase and we are just beginning to implement our business plan. There can be no assurance that we will ever operate profitably. The likelihood of our success should be considered in light of the problems, expenses, difficulties, complications and delays usually encountered by early stage companies. The Company may not be successful in attaining the objectives necessary for it to overcome these risks and uncertainties.

Global crises such as COVID-19 can have a significant effect on our business operations and revenue projections.

With shelter-in-place orders and non-essential business closings potentially happening throughout 2020, 2021, 2022 and into the future due to COVID-19, the Company’s revenue has been adversely affected.

The amount of capital the Company is attempting to raise in this Offering may not be enough to sustain the Company’s current business plan.

In order to achieve the Company’s near and long-term goals, the Company may need to procure funds in addition to the amount raised in the Offering. There is no guarantee the Company will be able to raise such funds on acceptable terms or at all. If we are not able to raise sufficient capital in the future, we may not be able to execute our business plan, our continued operations will be in jeopardy and we may be forced to cease operations and sell or otherwise transfer all or substantially all of our remaining assets, which could cause an Investor to lose all or a portion of their investment.

We may face potential difficulties in obtaining capital.

We may have difficulty raising needed capital in the future as a result of, among other factors, our lack of revenues from sales, as well as the inherent business risks associated with our Company and present and future market conditions. Our business currently does not generate any sales and future sources of revenue may not be sufficient to meet our future capital requirements. We will require additional funds to execute our business strategy and conduct our operations. If adequate funds are unavailable, we may be required to delay, reduce the scope of or eliminate one or more of our research, development or commercialization programs, product launches or marketing efforts, any of which may materially harm our business, financial condition and results of operations.

We may implement new lines of business or offer new products and services within existing lines of business.

As an early-stage company, we may implement new lines of business at any time. There are substantial risks and uncertainties associated with these efforts, particularly in instances where the markets are not fully developed. In developing and marketing new lines of business and/or new products and services, we may invest significant time and resources. Initial timetables for the introduction and development of new lines of business and/or new products or services may not be achieved, and price and profitability targets may not prove feasible. We may not be successful in introducing new products and services in response to industry trends or developments in technology, or those new products may not achieve market acceptance. As a result, we could lose business, be forced to price products and services on less advantageous terms to retain or attract clients or be subject to cost increases. As a result, our business, financial condition or results of operations may be adversely affected.

We source certain materials from a number of third-party suppliers and, in some cases, single-source suppliers.

Although we believe that alternative suppliers are available, the loss of any of our material suppliers could adversely affect our results of operations and financial condition. Our inability to preserve the current economics of these agreements could expose us to significant cost increases in future years.

We rely on other companies to provide components and services for our products.

We depend on suppliers and contractors to meet our contractual obligations to our customers and conduct our operations. Our ability to meet our obligations to our customers may be adversely affected if suppliers or contractors do not provide the agreed-upon supplies or perform the agreed-upon services in compliance with customer requirements and in a timely and cost-effective manner. Likewise, the quality of our products may be adversely impacted if companies to whom we delegate manufacture of major components or subsystems for our products, or from whom we acquire such items, do not provide components which meet required specifications and perform to our and our customers’ expectations. Our suppliers may be unable to quickly recover from natural disasters and other events beyond their control and may be subject to additional risks such as financial problems that limit their ability to conduct their operations. The risk of these adverse effects may be greater in circumstances where we rely on only one or two contractors or suppliers for a particular component. Our products may utilize custom components available from only one source. Continued availability of those components at acceptable prices, or at all, may be affected for any number of reasons, including if those suppliers decide to concentrate on the production of common components instead of components customized to meet our requirements. The supply of components for a new or existing product could be delayed or constrained, or a key manufacturing vendor could delay shipments of completed products to us adversely affecting our business and results of operations.

We rely on various intellectual property rights, including trademarks, in order to operate our business.

The Company relies on certain intellectual property rights to operate its business. The Company’s intellectual property rights may not be sufficiently broad or otherwise may not provide us a significant competitive advantage. In addition, the steps that we have taken to maintain and protect our intellectual property may not prevent it from being challenged, invalidated, circumvented or designed-around, particularly in countries where intellectual property rights are not highly developed or protected. In some circumstances, enforcement may not be available to us because an infringer has a dominant intellectual property position or for other business reasons, or countries may require compulsory licensing of our intellectual property. Our failure to obtain or maintain intellectual property rights that convey competitive advantage, adequately protect our intellectual property or detect or prevent circumvention or unauthorized use of such property, could adversely impact our competitive position and results of operations. We also rely on nondisclosure and noncompetition agreements with employees, consultants and other parties to protect, in part, trade secrets and other proprietary rights. There can be no assurance that these agreements will adequately protect our trade secrets and other proprietary rights and will not be breached, that we will have adequate remedies for any breach, that others will not independently develop substantially equivalent proprietary information or that third parties will not otherwise gain access to our trade secrets or other proprietary rights. As we expand our business, protecting our intellectual property will become increasingly important. The protective steps we have taken may be inadequate to deter our competitors from using our proprietary information. In order to protect or enforce our patent rights, we may be required to initiate litigation against third parties, such as infringement lawsuits. Also, these third parties may assert claims against us with or without provocation. These lawsuits could be expensive, take significant time and could divert management’s attention from other business concerns. The law relating to the scope and validity of claims in the technology field in which we operate is still evolving and, consequently, intellectual property positions in our industry are generally uncertain. We cannot assure you that we will prevail in any of these potential suits or that the damages or other remedies awarded, if any, would be commercially valuable.

Although dependent on certain key personnel, the Company does not have any key person life insurance policies on any such people.

We are dependent on certain key personnel in order to conduct our operations and execute our business plan, however, the Company has not purchased any insurance policies with respect to those individuals in the event of their death or disability. Therefore, if any of these personnel die or become disabled, the Company will not receive any compensation to assist with such person’s absence. The loss of such person could negatively affect the Company and our operations. We have no way to guarantee key personnel will stay with the Company, as many states do not enforce non- competition agreements, and therefore acquiring key man insurance will not ameliorate all of the risk of relying on key personnel.

Damage to our reputation could negatively impact our business, financial condition and results of operations.

Our reputation and the quality of our brand are critical to our business and success in existing markets, and will be critical to our success as we enter new markets. Any incident that erodes consumer loyalty for our brand could significantly reduce its value and damage our business. We may be adversely affected by any negative publicity, regardless of its accuracy. Also, there has been a marked increase in the use of social media platforms and similar devices, including blogs, social media websites and other forms of internet-based communications that provide individuals with access to a broad audience of consumers and other interested persons. The availability of information on social media platforms is virtually immediate as is its impact. Information posted may be adverse to our interests or may be inaccurate, each of which may harm our performance, prospects or business. The harm may be immediate and may disseminate rapidly and broadly, without affording us an opportunity for redress or correction.

Our business could be negatively impacted by cyber security threats, attacks and other disruptions.

We continue to face advanced and persistent attacks on our information infrastructure where we manage and store various proprietary information and sensitive/confidential data relating to our operations. These attacks may include sophisticated malware (viruses, worms, and other malicious software programs) and phishing emails that attack our products or otherwise exploit any security vulnerabilities. These intrusions sometimes may be zero-day malware that are difficult to identify because they are not included in the signature set of commercially available antivirus scanning programs. Experienced computer programmers and hackers may be able to penetrate our network security and misappropriate or compromise our confidential information or that of our customers or other third-parties, create system disruptions, or cause shutdowns. Additionally, sophisticated software and applications that we produce or procure from third-parties may contain defects in design or manufacture, including “bugs” and other problems that could unexpectedly interfere with the operation of the information infrastructure. A disruption, infiltration or failure of our information infrastructure systems or any of our data centers as a result of software or hardware malfunctions, computer viruses, cyber-attacks, employee theft or misuse, power disruptions, natural disasters or accidents could cause breaches of data security, loss of critical data and performance delays, which in turn could adversely affect our business.

The use of individually identifiable data by our business, our business associates and third parties is regulated at the state, federal and international levels.

The regulation of individual data is changing rapidly, and in unpredictable ways. A change in regulation could adversely affect our business, including causing our business model to no longer be viable. Costs associated with information security – such as investment in technology, the costs of compliance with consumer protection laws and costs resulting from consumer fraud – could cause our business and results of operations to suffer materially. Additionally, the success of our online operations depends upon the secure transmission of confidential information over public networks, including the use of cashless payments. The intentional or negligent actions of employees, business associates or third parties may undermine our security measures. As a result, unauthorized parties may obtain access to our data systems and misappropriate confidential data. There can be no assurance that advances in computer capabilities, new discoveries in the field of cryptography or other developments will prevent the compromise of our customer transaction processing capabilities and personal data. If any such compromise of our security or the security of information residing with our business associates or third parties were to occur, it could have a material adverse effect on our reputation, operating results and financial condition. Any compromise of our data security may materially increase the costs we incur to protect against such breaches and could subject us to additional legal risk.

The Company is not subject to Sarbanes-Oxley regulations and may lack the financial controls and procedures of public companies.

The Company may not have the internal control infrastructure that would meet the standards of a public company, including the requirements of the Sarbanes Oxley Act of 2002. As a privately-held (non-public) Company, the Company is currently not subject to the Sarbanes Oxley Act of 2002, and its financial and disclosure controls and procedures reflect its status as a development stage, non-public company. There can be no guarantee that there are no significant deficiencies or material weaknesses in the quality of the Company's financial and disclosure controls and procedures. If it were necessary to implement such financial and disclosure controls and procedures, the cost to the Company of such compliance could be substantial and could have a material adverse effect on the Company’s results of operations.

We operate in a highly regulated environment, and if we are found to be in violation of any of the federal, state, or local laws or regulations applicable to us, our business could suffer.

We are also subject to a wide range of federal, state, and local laws and regulations, such as local licensing requirements, and retail financing, debt collection, consumer protection, environmental, health and safety, creditor, wage-hour, anti-discrimination, whistleblower and other employment practices laws and regulations and we expect these costs to increase going forward. The violation of these or future requirements or laws and regulations could result in administrative, civil, or criminal sanctions against us, which may include fines, a cease and desist order against the subject operations or even revocation or suspension of our license to operate the subject business. As a result, we have incurred and will continue to incur capital and operating expenditures and other costs to comply with these requirements and laws and regulations.

Litigation relating to alcohol abuse or the misuse of alcohol could adversely affect our business.

There has been increased public attention directed at the beverage alcohol industry, which we believe is due to concern over problems related to alcohol abuse, including drinking and driving, underage drinking and health consequences from the misuse of alcohol. Several beverage alcohol producers have been sued regarding alleged advertising practices relating to underage consumers. Adverse developments in these or similar lawsuits or a significant decline in the social acceptability of beverage alcohol products that could result from such lawsuits could materially adversely affect our business.

Adverse public opinion about alcohol could reduce demand for our products

Anti-alcohol groups have, in the past, advocated successfully for more stringent labeling requirements, higher taxes and other regulations designed to discourage alcohol consumption. In addition, recent developments in the industry may compel us to identify the source and location of our distillate products and notify the consumer of whether the product was distilled by us. More restrictive regulations, negative publicity regarding alcohol consumption and/or changes in consumer perceptions of the relative healthfulness or safety of beverage alcohol could decrease sales and consumption of alcohol and thus the demand for our products. This could, in turn, significantly decrease both our revenues and our revenue growth, causing a decline in our results of operations.

Potential decline in the consumption of our products; dependence on sales of our beer.

Our business depends upon consumers’ consumption of our beer brand. Accordingly, a decline in the growth rate, amount or profitability of our sales of our beer could adversely affect our business. Further, consumer preferences and tastes may shift due to, among other reasons, changing taste preferences, demographics or perceived value. Consequently, any material shift in consumer preferences and taste in our major markets away from our brand, and our beer in particular, from the categories in which it competes could have a negative impact on our business, liquidity, financial condition and/or results of operations. Consumer preferences may shift due to a variety of factors, including changes in demographic or social trends, public health policies, and changes in leisure, dining and beverage consumption patterns. A limited or general decline in consumption in one or more of our product categories could occur in the future due to a variety of factors, including: • a general decline in economic or geopolitical conditions; • concern about the health consequences of consuming beverage alcohol products and about drinking and driving; • a general decline in the consumption of beverage alcohol products in on-premise establishments, such as may result from stricter laws relating to driving while under the influence of alcohol; • the increased activity of anti-alcohol groups; • increased federal, state, provincial excise or other taxes on beverage alcohol products and possible • restrictions on beverage alcohol advertising and marketing; • increased regulation placing restrictions on the purchase or consumption of beverage alcohol products or increasing prices due to the imposition of duties or excise tax or changes to international trade agreements or tariffs; • inflation; and • wars, pandemics, weather and natural or man-made disasters.

We may encounter difficulties in maintaining relationships with suppliers, distributors and customers.

Our business success is, dependent, in part, on our ability to maintain, grow, and we cannot guarantee any current relationships with our suppliers, distributors, partners, customers, or any other entity or individual selling our products on a consumer-facing platform. We define "platform" as any physical or digital intermediary through which our products are sold, including, but not limited to, retail and marketplace websites and physical retail stores. We cannot predict the financial health of our customers or other platforms through which our products are sold, and, consequently, the maintenance of our current and/or future relationships cannot be guaranteed. The loss of one or more a customer accounts could significantly negatively impact our business.

We rely on third-party suppliers to provide basic ingredients for our products.

We depend on these suppliers, distributors and subcontractors to meet our contractual obligations to our customers and conduct our operations. Our ability to meet our obligations to our customers may be adversely affected if suppliers or subcontractors do not provide the agreed-upon supplies or perform the agreed-upon services in compliance with customer requirements and in a timely and cost-effective manner. Likewise, the quality of our products may be adversely impacted if companies to whom we delegate production of our products, or from whom we acquire such items, do not provide ingredients or packaging components which meet required specifications and perform to our and our customers’ expectations. Our suppliers may be less likely than us to be able to quickly recover from natural disasters and other events beyond their control and may be subject to additional risks such as financial problems that limit their ability to conduct their operations. The risk of these adverse effects may be greater in circumstances where we rely on only one or two subcontractors or suppliers for a particular raw material, component, basic ingredient subsystem.

Investors will not become equity holders of the Company.

Investors will not have an ownership claim to the Company or to any of its assets. In certain instances, such as a sale of the Company or substantially all of its assets, an initial public offering or a dissolution or bankruptcy, the Investors may only have a right to receive cash, to the extent available.

The Company is vulnerable to fluctuations in the price and supply of ingredients, packaging materials, and freight.

The Company purchases large quantities of raw materials, including ingredients used in our products. Costs of ingredients and packaging, are volatile and can fluctuate due to conditions that are difficult to predict, including global competition for resources, weather conditions, natural or man-made disasters, consumer demand, and changes in governmental trade and agricultural programs. Additionally, the prices of packaging materials and freight are subject to fluctuations in price. The sales prices to the Companies' customers are a delivered price. Therefore, changes in the Company's input costs could impact their gross margins. Their ability to pass along higher costs through price increases to their customers is dependent upon competitive conditions and pricing methodologies employed in the various markets in which the Company competes. To the extent competitors do not also increase their prices, customers and consumers may choose to purchase competing products or may shift purchases to lower-priced private label or other value offerings which may adversely affect the Company's results of operations. The Company buys from a variety of producers and manufacturers, and alternate sources of supply are generally available. However, the supply and price are subject to market conditions and are influenced by other factors beyond the Company's control. The Company does not have long-term contracts with many of their suppliers, and, as a result, they could increase prices or fail to deliver. The occurrence of any of the foregoing could increase their costs and disrupt their operation.


We are in a highly competitive industry and our sales could be negatively affected by numerous factors including: ● our inability to maintain or increase prices; ● new entrants in our market or categories; ● the decision of wholesalers, retailers or consumers to purchase competitors’ products instead of ours; or ● a general decline in beverage alcohol consumption due to consumer dietary preference changes or consumers substituting or similar products in lieu of beverage alcohol. Sales could also be affected by pricing, purchasing, financing, operational, advertising or promotional decisions made by wholesalers, state and other local agencies, and retailers which could affect their supply of, or consumer demand for, our products. We could also experience higher than expected selling, general and administrative expenses if we find it necessary to increase the number of our personnel or our advertising or marketing expenditures to maintain our competitive position or for other reasons. We cannot guarantee that we will be able to increase our prices to pass along to our customers any increased costs we incur.

We face competition from other companies that produce alcoholic beverage products, and other alternative products with similar benefits, make-up, and general likeness as our products.

Competition in our industry, specifically, the production, sale, marketing, and distribution of beverage products is vigorous, with a large number of businesses engaged in this industry. Many of our competitors have established reputations for successfully developing and marketing their products, including their own versions of alcoholic beverages that incorporate the same or similar ingredients as our products, including other alternative ingredients that are widely recognized as providing similar benefits to our ingredients. In addition, many of our competitors have greater financial, managerial and technical resources than we do. If we are not successful in competing in these markets, we may not be able to attain our business objectives.

Consolidation in the beer industry may impact our market share.

Where we operate, we compete with Anheuser-Busch InBev S.A./N.V. (“ABI”) and its subsidiaries, the largest beer company in the world. ABI has expanded globally in recent years, through a series of mergers and acquisitions, and today has more than 500 brands and operations in 50 countries. The foregoing consolidation in the market, as well as any further consolidation of our competitors, may increase their pricing and/or investment competitiveness, which could negatively affect our market share, and accordingly, our results.

The craft beer business is seasonal in nature, and we are likely to experience fluctuations in operating results.

Sales of craft beer products are somewhat seasonal. Our sales volume may also be affected by weather conditions and selling days within a particular period. Therefore, the results for any given quarter will likely not be indicative of the results that may be achieved for the full fiscal year. If an adverse event such as an economic downturn or poor weather conditions should occur during the second and third quarters, the adverse impact to our revenues would likely be greater as a result of the seasonality of our business.

We may not be able to satisfy our product supply requirements for our beer in the event of a significant disruption, partial destruction or total destruction of our breweries.

A significant disruption at our breweries, even on a short-term basis, could impair our ability to produce and ship products to market on a timely basis. Alternative facilities with sufficient capacity or capabilities may not readily be available, may cost substantially more or may take a significant time to start production, any of which could have a material adverse effect on our business, liquidity, financial condition and/or results of operations.

The Company's management may have broad discretion in how the Company uses the net proceeds of the Offering.

Unless the Company has agreed to a specific use of the proceeds from the Offering, the Company’s management will have considerable discretion over the use of proceeds from the Offering. You may not have the opportunity, as part of your investment decision, to assess whether the proceeds are being used appropriately.

Our inability to successfully manage the price gap between our private-label products and those of our branded competitors may adversely affect our results of operation.

Competitors’ branded products could have an advantage over our private label products primarily due to advertising and name recognition. When branded competitors focus on price and promotion, the environment for private label products becomes more challenging because the price gaps between private label and branded products can become less meaningful. At the retail level, private label products sell at a discount to those of branded competitors. If branded competitors continue to reduce the price of their products, the price of branded products offered to consumers may approximate or be lower than the prices of our private label products. Further, promotional activities by branded competitors such as temporary price rollbacks, buy-one-get-one-free offerings and coupons have the effect of price decreases. Price decreases taken by competitors could result in a decline in the Company’s sales volumes.

We may be unable to anticipate changes in consumer preferences and trends, which could result in decreased demand for our products.

Our success depends in part on our ability to anticipate the tastes and eating habits of consumers and to offer products that appeal to their preferences. Consumer preferences change from time to time and can be affected by a number of different and unexpected trends. Our failure to anticipate, identify or react quickly to these changes and trends, and to introduce new and improved products on a timely basis, could result in reduced demand for our products, which would in turn cause our revenues and profitability to suffer. Similarly, demand for our products could be affected by consumer concerns regarding the health effects of nutrients or ingredients such as trans fats, sugar, processed wheat or other product attributes.

We are affected by extensive laws, governmental regulations, administrative determinations, court decisions and similar constraints both domestically and abroad and our failure to comply with these laws, regulations and constraints could lead to the imposition of significant penalties or claims, which could harm our financial condition and operating results.

In the U.S. market, the formulation, manufacturing, packaging, labeling, distribution, sale and storage of our products are affected by extensive laws, governmental regulations, administrative determinations, court decisions and similar constraints. Such laws, regulations and other constraints may exist at the federal, state or local levels in the United States. We are subject to regulation by one or more federal agencies including the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the U.S. Federal Trade Commission, the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA), and state and local authorities. In addition, the adoption of new regulations or changes in the interpretations of existing regulations may result in significant compliance costs or discontinuation of product sales and may negatively impact the marketing of our products, resulting in significant loss of sales revenues. Our failure to comply with these current and new regulations could lead to the imposition of significant penalties or claims, limit the production or marketing of any non-compliant products or advertising and could negatively impact our business. The conduct of our businesses, including the production, storage, distribution, sale, display, advertising, marketing, labeling, transportation and use of our products, as well as our health and safety practices, are subject to various laws and regulations administered by federal, state and local governmental agencies in the United States. Many of these laws and regulations may have differing or conflicting legal standards across the various markets where our products are made, manufactured, distributed or sold. These laws and regulations and interpretations thereof may change, sometimes dramatically, as a result of a variety of factors, including, but not limited to, political, economic or social events. Such changes may include changes in: food and drug laws; laws related to product labeling, advertising and marketing practices; laws regarding the import or export of our products or ingredients used in our products; laws and programs aimed at reducing, restricting or eliminating ingredients or substances in, or attributes of, our products; laws and programs aimed at discouraging the consumption or altering the package or portion size of our products; increased regulatory scrutiny of, and increased litigation involving product claims and concerns regarding the effects on health of ingredients or substances in our products; state consumer protection laws; taxation requirements, including the imposition or proposed imposition of new or increased taxes or other limitations on the sale of our products; employment laws; privacy laws; laws regulating the price we may charge for our products. New laws, regulations or governmental policy and their related interpretations, or changes in any of the foregoing, including taxes or other limitations on the sale of our products, ingredients or substances contained in our products or commodities used in the production of our products, may alter the environment in which we do business and, therefore, may increase our costs or liabilities or reduce demand for our products, which could adversely affect our business, financial condition or results of operations. Governmental entities or agencies in jurisdictions where our products are made, manufactured, distributed or sold may also impose new labeling, product or production requirements, or other restrictions. If one jurisdiction imposes or proposes to impose new requirements or restrictions, other jurisdictions may follow and the requirements or restrictions, or proposed requirements or restrictions, may result in adverse publicity (whether or not valid). For example, if one jurisdiction imposes a specific labeling requirement or requires a specific warning on any product that contains certain ingredients or substances, other jurisdictions may react and impose restrictions on products containing the same ingredients or substances, which may result in adverse publicity or increased concerns about the health implications of consumption of such ingredients or substances in our products (whether or not valid). If consumer concerns, whether or not valid, about the health implications of consumption of ingredients or substances present in our products increase as a result of these studies, new scientific evidence, new labeling, product or production requirements or other restrictions, or for any other reason, including adverse publicity as a result of any of the foregoing, or if we are required to add warning labels to any of our products or place warnings in locations where our products are sold, demand for our products could decline, or we could be subject to lawsuits or new regulations that could affect sales of our products, any of which could adversely affect our business, financial condition or results of operations. In addition, regulatory authorities under whose laws we operate may have enforcement powers that can subject us to actions such as product recall, seizure of products or other sanctions, which could have an adverse effect on our sales or damage our reputation. Suppliers, producers, distributors or other third parties with whom we do business could take actions, intentional or not, that violate these policies and procedures or applicable laws or regulations. Violations of these laws or regulations could subject us to criminal or civil enforcement actions, including fines, penalties, disgorgement of profits or activity restrictions, any of which could adversely affect our business, financial condition or results of operations.

Federal, state and local beer, liquor and food service regulations may have a significant adverse impact on our operations.

We are required to operate in compliance with federal laws and regulations relating to alcoholic beverages administered by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives of the U.S. Department of Justice, as well as the laws and licensing requirements for alcoholic beverages of states and municipalities where our operations will be located. Failure to comply with federal, state or local regulations could cause any licenses we obtain to be revoked and force us to cease the sale of goods at certain locations. Any difficulties, delays or failures in obtaining such licenses, permits or approvals could delay or prevent the opening of any operations in a particular area or increase the costs associated therewith. In addition, in certain states, the number of liquor licenses available is limited, and licenses are traded on the open market. We expect beer sales to comprise a significant portion of our revenues. If we are unable to obtain any required licenses, revenues and results of operations could be adversely affected. We may apply for liquor licenses with the advice of outside legal and licensing consultants. Because of the many and various state and federal licensing and permitting requirements, there is a significant risk that one or more regulatory agencies could determine that we have not satisfied the requirements for any necessary license.

The distribution and sale of beer has historically been subject to a continuously changing tax regime.

Historically, there has been significant variation in the taxation of beer sales. As recently as December 2017, the “Tax Cuts and Jobs Act” was passed by Congress which provided, among other things, a temporary reduction in federal excise taxes on beer. Further, individual states also impose excise taxes on alcoholic beverages in varying amounts. In the future, the excise tax rate could be increased by either the federal or state governments. Future increases in excise taxes on alcoholic beverages could have a material adverse effect on our business and financial condition.

As a food production company, all of the Company's products must be compliant with regulations by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).

Certain products are or may become subject to FDA rules and regulations, including those regarding product manufacturing, food safety, required testing, and appropriate labeling of the products. It is possible that regulations by the FDA and its interpretation thereof may change over time. As such, there is a risk that the Company's products could become non-compliant with the FDA’s regulations and any such non-compliance could harm the business.

Substantial disruption to production at our manufacturing and distribution facilities could occur.

Substantial disruption to production at our manufacturing and distribution facilities could occur.

Reliance on major retailers and government agencies.

Local market structures and distribution channels vary worldwide. Within our primary market, we expect to offer a range of beer categories. In the U.S., we may sell our products to retail outlets and directly to government agencies, and we may explore entering into exclusive arrangements that generate a large portion of sales. Any retailers of our products may offer products which compete directly with our products for retail shelf space, promotional support and consumer purchases, and retailers may give higher priority to products of our competitors. The replacement or poor performance of our major retailers or government agencies could result in temporary or longer-term sales disruptions or could have a material adverse effect on our business, liquidity, financial condition and/or results of operations.

Manufacturing or design defects, unanticipated use of our products, or inadequate disclosure of risks relating to the use of the products can lead to injury or other adverse events.

These events could lead to recalls or safety alerts relating to our products (either voluntary or required by governmental authorities) and could result, in certain cases, in the removal of a product from the market. Any recall could result in significant costs as well as negative publicity that could reduce demand for our products. Personal injuries relating to the use of our products can also result in product liability claims being brought against us. In some circumstances, such adverse events could also cause delays in new product approvals. Similarly, negligence in performing our services can lead to injury or other adverse events.

Product safety and quality concerns, including concerns related to perceived quality of ingredients, could negatively affect the Company’s business.

The Company’s success depends in large part on its ability to maintain consumer confidence in the safety and quality of all its products. The Company has rigorous product safety and quality standards. However, if products taken to market are or become contaminated or adulterated, the Company may be required to conduct costly product recalls and may become subject to product liability claims and negative publicity, which would cause its business to suffer. In addition, regulatory actions, activities by nongovernmental organizations and public debate and concerns about perceived negative safety and quality consequences of certain materials in our products may erode consumers’ confidence in the safety and quality issues, whether or not justified, and could result in additional governmental regulations concerning the marketing and labeling of the Company’s products, negative publicity, or actual or threatened legal actions, all of which could damage the reputation of the Company’s products and may reduce demand for the Company’s products.

Future product recalls or safety concerns could adversely impact our results of operations.

We may be required to recall certain of our products should they be mislabeled, contaminated, spoiled, tampered with or damaged. We also may become involved in lawsuits and legal proceedings if it is alleged that the consumption or use of any of our products causes injury, illness or death. A product recall or an adverse result in any such litigation could have an adverse effect on our business, depending on the costs of the recall, the destruction of product inventory, competitive reaction and consumer attitudes. Even if a product liability or consumer fraud claim is unsuccessful or without merit, the negative publicity surrounding such assertions regarding our products could adversely affect our reputation and brand image. We also could be adversely affected if consumers in our principal markets lose confidence in the safety and quality of our products.

Contamination and degradation of product quality from diseases, pests and weather conditions

Our success depends upon the positive image that consumers have of our brands and of the safety and quality of our products. Contamination, whether arising accidentally or through deliberate third-party action, or other events that harm the integrity or consumer support for our brands, could adversely affect their sales. Various diseases, pests, fungi, viruses, drought, frosts and certain other weather conditions could affect the quality and quantity of barley, hops, grapes and other agricultural raw materials available, decreasing the supply and quality of our products. We cannot guarantee that our suppliers of agricultural raw materials will succeed in preventing contamination in fields or that we will succeed in preventing contamination. Future government restrictions regarding the use of certain materials used in growing agricultural raw materials may increase costs and/or reduce production of crops. It is also possible that a supplier may not provide materials or product components which meet our required standards or may falsify documentation associated with the fulfillment of those requirements. Product contamination or tampering or the failure to maintain our standards for product quality, safety and integrity, including with respect to raw materials, naturally occurring compounds, packaging materials or product components obtained from suppliers, may also reduce demand for our products or cause production and delivery disruptions. Contaminants or other defects in raw materials, packaging materials or product components purchased from third parties and used in the production of our beer products or defects in the fermentation process could lead to low beverage quality as well as illness among, or injury to, consumers of our products and may result in reduced sales of the affected brand or all our brands. If any of our products become unsafe or unfit for consumption, are misbranded, or cause injury, we may have to engage in a product recall and/or be subject to liability and incur additional costs. A widespread product recall, multiple product recalls, or a significant product liability judgment could cause our products to be unavailable for a period, which could further reduce consumer demand and brand equity.

The Company could potentially be found to have not complied with securities law in connection with this Offering related to “Testing the Waters.”

Prior to filing this Form C, the Company engaged in “testing the waters” permitted under Regulation Crowdfunding (17 CFR 227.206), which allows issuers to communicate to determine whether there is interest in the offering. All communication sent is deemed to be an offer of securities for purposes of the antifraud provisions of federal securities laws. Any Investor who expressed interest prior to the date of this Offering should read this Form C thoroughly and rely only on the information provided herein and not on any statement made prior to the Offering. The communications sent to Investors prior to the Offering are attached as Exhibit E. Some of these communications may not have included proper disclaimers required for “testing the waters”.

State and federal securities laws are complex, and the Company could potentially be found to have not complied with all relevant state and federal securities law in prior offerings of securities.

The Company has conducted previous offerings of securities and may not have complied with all relevant state and federal securities laws. If a court or regulatory body with the required jurisdiction ever concluded that the Company may have violated state or federal securities laws, any such violation could result in the Company being required to offer rescission rights to investors in such offering. If such investors exercised their rescission rights, the Company would have to pay to such investors an amount of funds equal to the purchase price paid by such investors plus interest from the date of any such purchase. No assurances can be given the Company will, if it is required to offer such investors a rescission right, have sufficient funds to pay the prior investors the amounts required or that proceeds from this Offering would not be used to pay such amounts. In addition, if the Company violated federal or state securities laws in connection with a prior offering and/or sale of its securities, federal or state regulators could bring an enforcement, regulatory and/or other legal action against the Company which, among other things, could result in the Company having to pay substantial fines and be prohibited from selling securities in the future.

The U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission does not pass upon the merits of the Securities or the terms of the Offering, nor does it pass upon the accuracy or completeness of any Offering document or literature.

You should not rely on the fact that our Form C is accessible through the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission’s EDGAR filing system as an approval, endorsement or guarantee of compliance as it relates to this Offering. The U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission has not reviewed this Form C, nor any document or literature related to this Offering.

Neither the Offering nor the Securities have been registered under federal or state securities laws.

No governmental agency has reviewed or passed upon this Offering or the Securities. Neither the Offering nor the Securities have been registered under federal or state securities laws. Investors will not receive any of the benefits available in registered offerings, which may include access to quarterly and annual financial statements that have been audited by an independent accounting firm. Investors must therefore assess the adequacy of disclosure and the fairness of the terms of this Offering based on the information provided in this Form C and the accompanying exhibits.

The Company has the right to extend the Offering Deadline.

The Company may extend the Offering Deadline beyond what is currently stated herein. This means that your investment may continue to be held in escrow while the Company attempts to raise the Target Offering Amount even after the Offering Deadline stated herein is reached. While you have the right to cancel your investment in the event the Company extends the Offering Deadline, if you choose to reconfirm your investment, your investment will not be accruing interest during this time and will simply be held until such time as the new Offering Deadline is reached without the Company receiving the Target Offering Amount, at which time it will be returned to you without interest or deduction, or the Company receives the Target Offering Amount, at which time it will be released to the Company to be used as set forth herein. Upon or shortly after the release of such funds to the Company, the Securities will be issued and distributed to you.

The Company may also end the Offering early.

If the Target Offering Amount is met after 21 calendar days, but before the Offering Deadline, the Company can end the Offering by providing notice to Investors at least 5 business days prior to the end of the Offering. This means your failure to participate in the Offering in a timely manner, may prevent you from being able to invest in this Offering – it also means the Company may limit the amount of capital it can raise during the Offering by ending the Offering early.

The Company has the right to conduct multiple closings during the Offering.

If the Company meets certain terms and conditions, an intermediate close of the Offering can occur, which will allow the Company to draw down on half of the proceeds committed and captured in the Offering during the relevant period. The Company may choose to continue the Offering thereafter. Investors should be mindful that this means they can make multiple investment commitments in the Offering, which may be subject to different cancellation rights. For example, if an intermediate close occurs and later a material change occurs as the Offering continues, Investors whose investment commitments were previously closed upon will not have the right to re-confirm their investment as it will be deemed to have been completed prior to the material change.

Investors will not be entitled to any inspection or information rights other than those required by law.

Investors will not have the right to inspect the books and records of the Company or to receive financial or other information from the Company, other than as required by law. Other security holders of the Company may have such rights. Regulation CF requires only the provision of an annual report on Form C and no additional information. Additionally, there are numerous methods by which the Company can terminate annual report obligations, resulting in no information rights, contractual, statutory or otherwise, owed to Investors. This lack of information could put Investors at a disadvantage in general and with respect to other security holders, including certain security holders who have rights to periodic financial statements and updates from the Company such as quarterly unaudited financials, annual projections and budgets, and monthly progress reports, among other things.

The Securities will not be freely tradable under the Securities Act until one year from the initial purchase date. Although the Securities may be tradable under federal securities law, state securities regulations may apply, and each Investor should consult with their attorney.

f the long-term nature of this investment. There is not now and likely will not ever be a public market for the Securities. Because the Securities have not been registered under the Securities Act or under the securities laws of any state or foreign jurisdiction, the Securities have transfer restrictions and cannot be resold in the United States except pursuant to Rule 501 of Regulation CF. It is not currently contemplated that registration under the Securities Act or other securities laws will be effected. Limitations on the transfer of the Securities may also adversely affect the price that you might be able to obtain for the Securities in a private sale. Investors should be aware of the long-term nature of their investment in the Company. Each Investor in this Offering will be required to represent that they are purchasing the Securities for their own account, for investment purposes and not with a view to resale or distribution thereof.

The Securities are not secured by collateral and may become subordinated to any future secured liabilities.

The Securities are equal in right of payment to any of the Company’s existing liabilities, are not secured by collateral and may become subordinated to any future secured liabilities. In the event we default on any of senior debt or in the event we undergo a bankruptcy, liquidation, dissolution, reorganization or similar proceeding, the proceeds of the sale of our assets would first be applied to the repayment of our senior debt before any of those proceeds would be available to make payments on our subordinated debt, including the Notes. In addition, the Company’s assets that secure debt ranking senior or equal in right of payment to the Securities will be available to pay obligations on the Investors only after the secured debt has been repaid in full from these assets. Accordingly, there may be no assets remaining from which claims of the Investors could be satisfied, or if any assets remained, they might be insufficient to satisfy those claims in full.

Neither the Crowd Revenue Note Purchase Agreement nor the Note materially restrict our ability to incur additional debt, repurchase our securities or to take other actions that could negatively impact Investors.

ors. Although we presently have no intent to issue any additional debt, neither the Crowd Revenue Note Purchase Agreement nor the Note restrict us from incurring unsecured indebtedness in an aggregate principal amount not to exceed $100,000 at any time outstanding or indebtedness incurred with the prior written consent of Republic Investment Service, including senior debt or secured debt. In addition, the limited covenants contained in the Crowd Revenue Note Purchase Agreement nor the Note do not require us to achieve or maintain any minimum financial ratios relating to our financial position or results of operations. Our ability to recapitalize, incur additional debt and take a number of other actions that are not materially limited by the Crowd Revenue Note Purchase Agreement nor the Note. In addition, we are not restricted from repurchasing our Units by the terms of the Notes.

The Crowd Revenue Note Purchase Agreement and the Note is subject to transfer limitations.

The Investor will not, directly or indirectly, offer, sell, pledge, transfer, or otherwise dispose of (or solicit any offers to buy, purchase, or otherwise acquire to take a pledge of) (“Transfer”) its interests under the Crowd Revenue Note Purchase Agreement and the Note during the one-year period beginning when the Crowd Revenue Note Purchase Agreement and the Note is issued, other than: (i) to the Company; (ii) to an “accredited investor” as defined in Rule 501(a) of Regulation D; (iii) as part of an offering registered with the SEC; or (iv) to a member of the family of the Investor or the equivalent, to a trust controlled by the Investor, to a trust created for the benefit of a member of the family of the Investor or the equivalent, or in connection with the death or divorce of the Investor or other similar circumstance. The Company will not be required to permit or recognize any Transfer of the Crowd Revenue Note Purchase Agreement and the Note or any interest herein at any particular time, or with the passage of time. The Company is under no obligation to register or to perfect any exemption for resale of the Crowd Revenue Note Purchase Agreement and the Note under the Securities Act or the securities laws of any state or any other jurisdiction. Separately, to the extent that any laws, regulations or similar considerations applicable to the Investor do not permit the Investor to continue to hold interests in the Crowd Revenue Note Purchase Agreement or the Note, the Investor will agree that the Company may, with prior consent and cooperation of the Intermediary, require the Investor to Transfer its interests under Crowd Revenue Note Purchase Agreement or the Note to the Company (such Transfer, a “Regulatory Transfer”), in an amount equal to the unpaid balance of the principal or an amount otherwise required by the applicable law, regulation or similar consideration requiring such Regulatory Transfer. Each Investor must agree and consent that the Issuer may take any actions that may be necessary or advisable to effectuate the intent of such Regulatory Transfer.

The Notes will not be rated.

We do not intend to seek a rating on the Notes. Accordingly, there is no third party which will express any opinion as to the value of the Notes or their terms.

Servicing our debt requires a significant amount of cash, and we may not have sufficient cash flow from our business to pay our substantial debt and continue operations.

Our ability to make scheduled payments of the principal of, to pay interest on or to refinance our indebtedness, depends on our future performance, which to a certain extent is subject to economic, financial, competitive and other factors beyond our control. Our business may not continue to generate cash flow from operations in the future sufficient to service our debt and make necessary capital expenditures. If unable to generate such cash flow, we may be required to adopt one or more alternatives, such as selling assets, restructuring debt or obtaining additional equity capital on terms that may be onerous or highly dilutive. Our ability to refinance our indebtedness will depend on the capital markets and our financial condition at such time. We may not be able to engage in any of these activities or engage in these activities on desirable terms, which could result in a default on our debt obligations.

A change in control or fundamental change may adversely affect us or the Notes.

The Crowd Revenue Note Purchase Agreement and the Note provide that certain change in control events with respect to us will constitute a default. In addition, future debt we incur may limit our ability to repurchase the Notes upon a designated event or require us to offer to redeem that future debt upon specified events, including a designated event. Furthermore, the Company may believe it is in the best interests of its members and the Investors to engage in a line of business substantially different from the primary line of business carried on by the Company as of the date of this Form C, but the Crowd Revenue Note Purchase Agreement materially impairs the Company’s right to engage in such business. As a result, the Company’s operations are limited to the line of business set forth in the Form C, and any business reasonably complementary or ancillary thereto. Accordingly, we may lose opportunities to grow our business and, as a result, the value of and cash flow for the business may become impaired which increases the default risk under the Crowd Revenue Note Purchase Agreement and the Note.

If we sell additional equity or debt securities to fund our operations, restrictions may be imposed on our business.

In order to raise additional funds to support our operations, we may sell additional equity or debt securities, which may impose restrictive covenants that adversely impact our business. The incurrence of indebtedness would result in increased fixed payment obligations and could also result in restrictive covenants, such as limitations on our ability to incur additional debt, limitations on our ability to acquire, sell or license intellectual property rights and other operating restrictions that could adversely impact our ability to conduct our business. If we are unable to expand our operations or otherwise capitalize on our business opportunities as a result of such restrictions, our business, financial condition and results of operations could be materially adversely affected.

To service our indebtedness, we will require a significant amount of cash. Our ability to generate cash depends on many factors beyond our control, and any failure to meet our debt service obligations could have a material adverse effect on our business, prospects, results of operations and financial condition.

Our ability to pay interest on and principal of our debt obligations principally depends upon our operating performance. As a result, prevailing economic conditions and financial, business and other factors, many of which are beyond our control, will affect our ability to make these payments. If we do not generate sufficient cash flow from operations to satisfy our debt service obligations, we may have to undertake alternative financing plans, such as refinancing or restructuring our indebtedness, selling assets, reducing or delaying capital investments or capital expenditures or seeking to raise additional capital. Our ability to restructure or refinance our debt, if at all, will depend on the condition of the capital markets and our financial condition at such time. Any refinancing of our debt could be at higher interest rates and may require us to comply with more onerous covenants, which could further restrict our business operations. In addition, the terms of existing or future debt instruments may restrict us from adopting some of these alternatives. Our inability to generate sufficient cash flow to satisfy our debt service obligations, or to refinance.

If, after we make payments to Investors under the Note, we file a bankruptcy or insolvency petition or an involuntary bankruptcy or insolvency petition is filed against us that is not dismissed, a bankruptcy or insolvency court may seek to recover such proceeds from the Investors.

If, after we make payments to Investors under the Note, we file a bankruptcy or insolvency petition or an involuntary bankruptcy or insolvency petition is filed against us that is not dismissed, any payments received by Investors could be viewed under applicable debtor/creditor and/or bankruptcy laws as either a “preferential transfer” or a “fraudulent conveyance.” As a result, a bankruptcy or insolvency court could seek to recover some or all amounts received by you. In addition, our managing member may be viewed as having breached its fiduciary duty to creditors and/or having acted in bad faith, thereby exposing such member and the Company to claims of punitive damages.

Investors should consult their respective tax advisers with respect to the Crowd Revenue Note Purchase Agreement and the Note.

If you are considering the purchase of a debenture, you should consult your own tax advisors as to the particular tax consequences to you of acquiring, holding or otherwise disposing of the debentures, including the effect and applicability of state, local or foreign tax laws, or any U.S. estate and gift tax laws. The Company makes no representations or warranties about the tax treatment thereof.

If we generate income, we may make distributions sufficient to discharge our members’ federal, state and local tax obligations.

The Company is treated as a partnership for U.S. federal income tax purposes. As a partnership, the Company will generally not be subject to U.S. federal income tax. Instead, each member that is subject to U.S. tax will be required to take into account its distributive share, whether or not distributed, of each item of the Company’s income, gain, loss,deductionorcredit. Itispossiblethatinanyyear,theCompanymaydistributeassetstothememberstodischarge such member’s federal, state or local tax obligations arising solely from the net income of the business of the Company. As a result, the Company’s cash flow may be insufficient to satisfy its obligations under the Crowd Revenue Note Purchase Agreement and the Note.

A Crowd Revenue Note holder may lose their right to any appreciation or return on investment due to defaulting on certain notice and require action requirements in such Crowd Revenue Note; failure to claim cash set aside in this case may result in a total loss of principal.

The Crowd Revenue Note offered requires a holder to complete, execute and deliver any reasonable or necessary information and documentation requested by the Company or the Intermediary in order to effect the conversion or termination of the Crowd Revenue Note, in connection with an Equity Financing or Liquidity Event, within thirty (30) calendar days of receipt of notice (whether actual or constructive) from the Company. Failure to make a timely action may result in the Company declaring that the Investor is only eligible to receive a cash payment equal to their Purchase Amount (or a lesser amount in certain events). While the Company will set aside such payment for the investor, such payment may be subject to escheatment laws, resulting in a total loss of principal if the Investor never claims their payment.

There is no present market for the Securities and we have arbitrarily set the price.

The Offering price was not established in a competitive market. We have arbitrarily set the price of the Securities with reference to the general status of the securities market and other relevant factors. The Offering price for the Securities should not be considered an indication of the actual value of the Securities and is not based on our asset value, net worth, revenues or other established criteria of value. We cannot guarantee that the Securities can be resold at the Offering price or at any other price.

Debt Financing is inherently risky.

The Company’s debt service obligations may adversely affect cash flow. As a result of any future debt obligations, we may be subject to: (i) the risk that cash flow from operations will be insufficient to meet required payments of principal and interest, (ii) restrictive covenants, including covenants relating to certain financial ratios, and (iii) interest rate risk.

There is no guarantee of a return on an Investor’s investment.

There is no assurance that an Investor will realize a return on their investment or that they will not lose their entire investment. For this reason, each Investor should read this Form C and all exhibits carefully and should consult with their attorney and business advisor prior to making any investment decision.
