FanDraught Sports Brewery Receives Crowdfunding Green Light from State of Colorado
The Brewery Plans to Build a Collaborative Member-Owner Community
Residents can become a FanDraught Founding Member-Owner for as little as $1,000, and are invited to participate on one or more committees. Collaboration and involvement will be encouraged, not required, with special parties, t-shirts, and recognition for Founding Member-Owners. Learn more at FanDraught.com.
Consumers flock to a variety of sports and entertainment options in the Denver area - TopGolf, Dave & Buster's, Broncos, Rockies, Nuggets, Avalanche, Outlaws, Rapids, and more. FanDraught will complement these, while offering a full line of quality craft beer and a variety of interactive sports entertainment, including free fantasy sports leagues, a unique mobile app, sports trivia, and much more. The planned location is in Douglas County.
According to the Fantasy Sports Trade Association (FSTA), the North American fantasy sports market has grown from a few million to almost 60 million players in the last 25 years. FanDraught's founder, Jeff Thomas, has a unique perspective as a sports and craft beer entrepreneur. He launched one of the first fantasy sports companies, in 1993, and sold it in 1999. Thomas co-founded a cooperative brewery in 2012, was president of the FSTA for three years, and served on its Board of Directors for twelve years. He is a consultant and recognized expert on fantasy sports law, products, marketing, technology and business models.
"It's obvious that sports fans love beer. Did you know that fantasy sports fans love beer even more? My favorite research statistic is that 52% of sports fans said they bought beer in the 30 days before the survey, while 72% of fantasy sports fans said they did," says Thomas. "The difference is significant. Fantasy sports fans are very passionate consumers. Our games, promotions, website, mobile app, loyalty program, and every detail of the taproom will be designed with them in mind."
Thomas learned about State of Colorado crowdfunding programs at a seminar by Karl Dakin of Colorado Community Capital PBC. FanDraught chose a Colorado Limited Offering Registration, because it offered the flexibility to approach accredited and non-accredited Colorado residents and create a large community of involved member-owners. More information on becoming a member-owner can be found at FanDraught.com.
About FanDraught Sports Brewery
FanDraught Sports Brewery is under development and expected to open in mid-2017. The FanDraught brand name and Coach Beermeister mascot were selected to communicate the sports and beer focus. Fans are sports fans. Draught beer is a "chiefly British" version of draft beer, and pronounced exactly the same. The taproom will have an industrial, sports chill look and feel, and will use a 10bbl brew house with a smaller pilot system to produce sports seasonals, special releases, and barrel-aged beers.
