Overview

Monkey Wrench Brewing is a production microbrewery with a taproom and large outdoor beer garden. We offer a fun atmosphere, great craft beers and space for birthday parties, corporate events, weddings and rehearsal dinners. Monkey Wrench Brewing Company will handcraft our beers in small 20-barrel batches (630 gallons) under the close personal attention of our brewers. We will start by selling in our local county and the downtown Atlanta area. Later in the year we will expand statewide. Florida and Tennessee are the next target states.

We are raising $150,000, paid over a 60 month period at an interest rate of 9.00%.

 

We are looking to expand across Georgia, and then to other states!

 

The Project

Warehouse Drains - $22,500
Keg Washer - $14,985
Canning Line - $97,925

Expansion plans for 2021 include a 20-barrel fired brewing system with 7 fermentation tanks. Monkey Wrench Brewing has invested over $500,000 in the current set-up and will add $400,000 plus in its 20 Barrel System expansion in 2021.

 

This campaign brings the community into a larger investment project.

Business

History

Wayne's home brew friends from New London Brew Club helped him build a 10 gallon all-grain RIMS brewing system in 2009.

Fast forward to 2011: tennis hobby vs. home brewing! I did a backhand return of serve in the summer of 2011 and somehow tore ligaments in my right wrist. I played for a while & then gave into surgery and wore a cast for 3 months & discovered how to do a ton of things as a lefty :)

I went back to home brewing on Saturdays instead of playing tennis and made brewing my main hobby; then I used my college marketing degree experience to start Monkey Wrench Brewing! It was time to serve up some great IPA’s, Seasonal & Belgium Brews for our devoted craft friends!

 

A home brew hobby turned into a community space!

 

The Future

MWB will be very active in on-premise and off-premise account sales with tap take-over’s and promotions, as we tell our story and get the consumer excited about our beers. Expansion plans for MWB include local distribution to retail stores in GA 2021. When capacity increases late 2021 we will expand to TN and FL.

 

Our plans are to expand our retail capacity in addition to our on-premise offerings.

Your ongoing responsibilities from investing are very limited. Over the life of the loan, you will receive a yearly 1099-INT, which is a simple tax document similar to what you receive for most savings accounts.*Individual payments may vary slightly based on rounding. Potential repayments include principal and interest; they do not include the one-time fee which is assessed when you make your investment. These amounts are calculated as a hybrid interest-only + amortizing loan, which means that there is a specified interest-only period followed by a an amortization period. There are no prepayment penalties and Monkey Wrench Brewing Company LLC may pay down their loan early, which may impact your earnings potential. Please note: returns are not guaranteed and investors could lose some or all of their investment.

Monkey Wrench Brewing Company LLC pays as agreed. You will receive quarterly payments directly into your bank account. In the event of a default, you will be contacted by the administrative agent to manage the collections process on the investors' behalf.
