STORM FORGE BREWING COMPANY, Coming soon to Iwip Rd., Smithfield Storm Forge Brewing Company is the dream of a couple of advanced homebrewers who desire to take their experience to the next level and open a Craft Brewery.
As our funding campaign ends, we are struggling with the realization that our goal of $30K was not achieved. In hindsight, it was a pretty lofty goal, but without a goal what is there to strive for? Perhaps many of you have tried fundraising for various reasons and understand it is not an easy task. We were continually amazed who donated/contributed and who didn’t. It is completely unpredictable. We wish to extend a sincere thank you to those that did contribute and thanks for believing in us. For those who didn’t contribute but are liking our page and posts on Facebook and following us on Twitter, thanks for your interest and support. Not achieving our goal in the Indiegogo campaign does not deter us but only strengthens our resolve to keep striving towards our goal of opening a craft brewery in the Hampton Roads area. For us, it’s about community involvement and collaboration and we can’t do it without you.
