Little Deep Beer Co in Minot Crowdfunding – Updated 11/10/14

UPDATE per Facebook on 11/10/2014:
As you may know, we didn’t reach our goal on our IndieGoGo campaign which means nobody should receive a charge from them as we did not receive any funds.

But don’t worry, we have been hard at work the last few weeks ripping apart our business plan and starting to rebuild it with a new audience, location(s) and a few new ideas inside.

It will be a few more weeks until it is ready and distributed to those that have expressed interest in helping us build in Minot.

Thanks to everyone that contributed to our project! We sincerely appreciate the gesture.


Little Deep Beer Company was founded in 2011 (then called Little Deep Brewing Company*) on the mission to bring craft beer to Minot. Since their inception, they have encountered numerous set-backs to our plans mostly from location related issues.

LittleDeepBeerAfter years of trying to establish their own brewery; they made a decision to switch gears and try another method, contract brewing with their beer being produced by another ND brewery and then building their own brewery once they are established.

They are trying to raise an additional $35,000 beyond their current financing to make this project happen to it’s full potential.

They are working through IndieGoGo to raise these finds giving several awards in addition to beer karma in return.  Depending on the amount you pledge, you can receive beer coasters, bottle openers, SiliPints, t-shirts, invitations to the Lauch Party and more.  At the $750 level, Little Deep founder Jon Lakoduk will come to your party with some swag and talk about beer.  At the top $1000 level, you can work it out with Little Deep what you want in return.

This crowdfunding campaign to get more beer made in Minot will run through October 20th, 2014.

*For legal reasons, they must call themselves Little Deep Beer Company…for now.

About Dean

I drank my share of pale lagers back in college in the 80's but I always wanted to try more, often drinking the 'dark' versions of beer as that was the only interesting thing on tap. I got into homebrewing in the early 90's meeting a lot of great people and then really started learning about beer and how to judge it. Then into the 00's I started branching out with beer and started to deal with beer education and paring beer with food which I did with some restaurants, even beating out wine in a beer vs. wine dinner. I don't try and push beer on people but if they ask questions and really want to listen, I can talk for hours about the subject. Now we come to today, and beer scene in the Fargo / Moorhead area and North Dakota is starting to boom. FMBeer was created with the help of MNBeer.com so people in the F/M area have a single place where they can find out more about good beer, from a calendar of events to lists of local breweries and bars. FMBeer is also a place to learn more about craft beer for those just branching out and a resource to come back to.
