Reasons to Invest

The craft beer market is maturing quickly offering a greater growth opportunity to competitors who have shown they know how to constantly innovate.
The ability to adapt strategy instead of continuing to do the same thing everyone is doing offers an opportunity for competitors to carve out sustained market share growth.
Craft beer remains a growing market that includes new segments of craft beer drinkers interested in a great craft beer experience

A family-run brewery dedicated to being local and offering a great craft beer experience

Our family built the Brewery and Tasting Room to be a comfortable place where you can enjoy a glass of beer while talking or playing games with family and friends. With our team of innovators, we are also always working to improve our process and bring fresh, full-flavored beers to craft beer aficionados. Ultimately, we aim to provide reliable, flavorful craft beer and be an integral part of our community through efforts such as supporting local businesses and hosting fundraisers for local charities. 

The craft beer market is highly competitive and overly saturated

The competition among craft breweries at every level is intense. Most small breweries are stagnant and don’t know what changes will bring about growth. In order to survive, they must quickly and constantly release new beer, avoid overproduction, sustain high quality packaged beer, maintain strong branding and sales, and offer high value to retailers while constantly reducing the time it takes for beer drinkers to obtain a brewery’s beer. It’s a tall order.

Using additional taprooms in a booming SF beer market to effectively project our brand 

In order to survive, craft breweries must quickly and constantly release new beer, avoid overproduction, sustain high quality packaged beer, maintain strong branding and sales, and offer high value to retailers while constantly reducing the time it takes for beer drinkers to obtain a brewery’s beer. It’s a tall order.

With our extensive knowledge of beer design and brewing, we are able to release a steady stream of beers for existing and emerging new segments of the craft beer market.  Our lean business concepts and partnerships will allow us to finish implementing a flexible new sales channel system capable of driving strong loyalty to our brand through a high level of service to retail accounts and substantially reduced time for fans to find and obtain our beer.

The emerging-market segment demanding healthier alternatives without compromising flavor and aroma is likely to be a significant growth opportunity. We’ve developed and tested single IPA’s and pale ales that are as flavorful and aromatic as typical IPA’s but with 4 or fewer carbs per glass, have less impact on insulin levels, and are gluten-reduced.

We plan to add at least 5 new taprooms throughout the bay area imbedded in local markets of craft beer enthusiasts in a way that drives our fans to local retail establishments.

The craft beer market favors innovation, consistency, quality, and speed

  • According to data from the Craft Brewers’ Association, craft beer sales grew 7% last year while production grew at a rate of 4%

  • By year-end, 2018, there were 7,346 breweries in the United States, having grown from 3,814 as of year-end 2014 - over 25% average growth per year

  • The total output of beer has grown steadily from 22.1 million in 2014 to 25.9 million barrels by year-end 2018

There are unique opportunities for those breweries seeking to constantly innovate and differentiate. Our dedication to creating full flavors across a range of traditional and healthy beer options while developing new methods and strategies to increase speed and efficiency in bringing our product to customers through sales channel partners, puts us in a position to take advantage of all the market offers.

Our milestones showcase a history of innovation and a dedication to flavor

Since we scribbled some notes on paper in 2012, we have come a long way:

  • Opened our 5,000sqft brewery and taproom ahead of schedule and under budget

  • In our first 5 years our innovative team produced over 80 different beers encompassing more than 30 different styles

  • Developed our own carbonating system that reduces the time and labor necessary to ensure consistent beer quality

  • Designed and built a system to accurately keg beer carbonated with nitrogen

  • Quickly innovated to create healthier beers for completely new, emerging markets (lower carbs, less impact on insulin levels, reduced gluten)

Our 5,000 sq ft taproom is already a hit

With our local Brew Dog celebrities 

But we might still need another lesson for Kurt on how to tap the keg...

Eight Bridges Brewing, Inc. plans to leverage our ability to design, brew, and purvey craft beer for local craft beer drinkers. The focus will be on a fast pace of new beer introductions while making it continually easier to find and obtain our beer brands by customers who want to travel less and less to obtain their favorite beer.  

We make really good fresh craft beer and a great  experience- no compromises!!!!

At Eight Bridges Brewing, we manufacture and package consistent, multidimensional fresh craft beer. We sell to local craft beer drinkers through the Eight Bridges Brewing taproom and licensed retail outlets such as restaurants, brewpubs, taprooms, and other beverage retailers. Our team brings a level of expertise to all aspects of running a craft brewery that ensures we are innovating for the latest in flavor development and bringing our beers to customers in the quickest, most efficient methods possible.

Just a few of our unique local favorites in the list of over 80 different  beers including brown ales, red ales, Belgian styles, sours and 46 IPA's:

Brewno Marzen

Our Festbier, this amber lager is malty with a touch of hops

Barrel Aged Russian Imperial Stout

Vanilla aromas, semi-sweet chocolate flavor and a warming 11% ABV.

Golden Nektar

Crystal clear, crisp German pilsner

Get faster, be closer to our fans, and drive sales channel partner success to produce growth

By carefully adding taprooms, building and nurturing strong partnerships with newly emerging sales channel partners and retailers committed to a strong craft beer experience , we ensure craft beer enthusiasts are gaining access to our full lineup of products as soon as they are available. This strategy means our beer is always fresh by the time it reaches a customer's lips. Our team’s commitment to flavor and it's background in the sciences of beer design and brewing technology and engineering means we are constantly improving our competitiveness while providing the ability to rapidly address emerging segments of new beer consumers. Dedication to our retail partnerships and innovation has built us a reputation flavor, freshness and consistency that keeps craft beer enthusiasts coming back for more.

Driving innovation while maintaining a focus on being a great craft beer company

We work to develop strong partnerships with our retailers by:

  • Requiring no minimum order quantities

  • Using software to help rapid keg recovery so we avoid cluttering retail customer precious space

  • Managing retailers’ inventory of our beer to ensure they do not run out of beer or carry too much inventory

  • Offer beer training to our retail customers so that their servers deliver a better craft beer experience

No compromise - anywhere, any time

  • Everything we package is done best practice
  • We focus on improved profitability without compromising process and materials

Focus on running a great business without loosing the creative focus that is craft beer

Through all of our progress, we are most proud of the impact we have had on our community

Rapid growth to maximum sales in the SF Bay area while preparing for growth beyond

Eight Bridges Brewing plans to accomplish this objective by adding as much as 5 new taprooms  in the Bay Area  that provide the ability to project our brands into defined geographies of strong craft beer drinkers through a sales channel that minimizes the time it takes to find and obtain the desired beer in the least amount of time for both our retail partners and beer fans. This same model will be used to achieve a steady sales growth beyond 2025 by adding brewery/taproom systems to adjacent geographies, allowing each new brewery/taproom system to offer even more variety by cross-marketing their respective beers each of the other systems.

Eight Bridges intends to accomplish this in three steps using crowdfunding to raise needed capital. Step 1 includes raising approximately $100,000 to fund our ability to add the capacity to package our beer in cans while funding the preparation for Step 2.  This first step will allow the brewery to reach positive cash flow while contributing to the attraction of key new team members.


  • Step 2 will focus on adding up to 2 additional taprooms and implementing the ability to project brand into well-defined pockets of craft beer 
  • Step 3 will focus on adding up to 2 additional taprooms with the intent of reaching peak brewery capacity while documenting the process in order to apply it to the implementation of additional brewery/taproom systems in adjacent geographies in order to drive balanced growth beyond 2025

A multi-disciplinary team dedicated to achieving the innovation needed to thrive in the future craft beer industry

The team at Eight Bridges Brewing is made up of people with strong expertise in their respective fields. Our brewer has a background in engineering and biology/chemistry, and others on the team have years of experience in consulting business development, and social media. While everyone at Eight Bridges brings a unique background to the company, the entire team is dedicated to innovating in the craft beer industry and bringing reliable, flavorful products to fellow enthusiasts. 

It is an exciting time to be involved in the next phase of the craft beer industry.

We need you to help fund step1 which is the cornerstone for our growth over the next 5 years and beyond. Adding the capacity to produce high quality cans will drive incremental revenue at the taproom and at key wholesale customers needed to reach positive cash flow and fund branding related graphics capability. It will set the stage for attracting top sales reps and tap room managers core to step 2.  We are looking for craft beer enthusiasts that want to get involved and be our ambassadors.

Invest in your own name, and then after the campaign has concluded, transfer ownership to the person receiving the gift.  The StartEngine team will help.

Our campaign is moving along quite nicely but our Christmas wish is to be over 60% of our goal by Christmas.   To do this we’re adding a little holiday gift to the fun.  Anyone who invests $400 or more between December 16 and December 24 will get a $50 gift card to the brewery!  

Thank you for wanting to be a part of our growth and future.  It's going to be exciting and we’re glad to have you along for the ride!

Amazing Progress: Almost at 50% of funding goal in just the first week!

about 1 month ago

Initial response to the start of our Crowd Funding Project has been fantastic.  We are nearly 50% of the way to our goal in just one week.  Wow!!! This is very exciting. 

With the progress so far, we have decided to begin the process of ordering our canning system and have held an initial meeting with our branding and creative partner, Craft Brew Creative.  Our team is exploring the alternatives available to kick off our branding project that will lead to initial canning labels.   

Feels good to be moving toward planned goals.  It will feel even better when we place the order, start the branding projct,  and initiate hiring a top sales rep.  

Cheers to continued strong progress toward our goal of $100,000.

George Beardsley
