Roughtail Brewing seeks your help to build canning line

Here’s the scoop: Roughtail Brewing wants to be build a canning line and they want $30,000 to do it.

As of this post, they have $1,170 raised and they have only 26 days to raise the rest. And, they want you to pay for it. Sort of.

Oklahoma’s newest brewers — they expect to be producing in January — are taking a novel approach to generate the funds to pay for a canning set-up.

Roughtail has started a Kickstarter campaign, which is essentially an Internet fund drive that offers swag in exchange for your donation to the cause. (And some of the swag, especially the hand-blown-glass beer stein, is pretty sweet.)

You can read all about it by clicking on this link.
