Alms for the Pour: Crowdfunding Breweries Is A Very Good Thing

I'm generally very much in favor of crowdfunding campaigns. They're an effective way to help support local breweries that might not yet have the facilities to increase production or distribution outside their city, let alone outside of their street.
