From Charles at Story Brewhouse LLC:
Beer and Creative Writing Project Seeks Backers

The following is a press release from Charles Stanley, founder of Story Brewhouse LLC, and best known to the craft beer world as the Strategic Projects Manager for Upland Brewing Co.:

I recently founded Story Brewhouse LLC to explore the creative combination of beer and literature. My first project, A Six Pack of Stories, will be a collection of short fiction and creative non-fiction in which beer plays an important role in the plot or theme.

Initial funds for the project are being raised via a Kickstarter campaign, and I’m asking that beer enthusiasts help spread the word about this campaign, which seeks to raise $9,077 between June 14th and July 14th. The campaign page is located at http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1522045241/a-six-pack-of-stories.

For those not familiar with Kickstarter, it is an online platform that allows creators to post projects to which benefactors contribute money in return for gifts related to the projects. Kickstarter uses an “All or Nothing” funding system: the creator sets a funding goal and a deadline, and if the project raises that money in the allotted amount of time, the creator keeps it. But if enough money isn’t raised, the creator gets nothing.

More about the project
The idea of A Six Pack of Stories came to me when I was combining two of my favorite activities: reading a novel and drinking a beer. (Don’t most good ideas seem to happen when a beer is involved?) It occurred to me that while the craft beer movement has integrated itself with visual art, music, and many other forms of creative expression, there has been little overlap with creative writing.

Once the project has been funded, I will solicit writers and beer enthusiasts to submit stories for consideration. I expect to receive wide range of story types, from the light-hearted and humorous to the thoughtful and heart breaking. The collection will reflect the wide variety of situations and feelings with which beer is associated in our lives.

The book will published for multiple e-reader platforms as well as in hard copy.
