Tucson's Burgeoning Brewing and Coffee Scenes Might Have a New Addition—If They Can Get Funding

Posted By on Thu, Nov 1, 2012 at 1:44 PM

I generally thought that Kickstarter was reserved for interesting art projects and awesome pens — but apparently, there are those out there who use Kickstarter to fund private business ideas. I mean, who better to act as angel investors than denizens of the internet, who consume copious quantities of both?

Thus, we have this pitch from Public Brew House and Coffee:

Tucson's Beau Hintz, a former barista with Cartel Coffee Lab, and Mike Gura, a home-brewing enthusiast, are behind the project, which they plan to open along Broadway Blvd., in the heart of downtown.

I plan on throwing some money at it, personally — after all, I'm of the opinion that downtown can never have too much good coffee or too much good beer.

But for them to get off the ground, they're going to need quite a bit of funding, and fast. The funding period ends on Nov. 14, and as of this writing they've secured only 14% of their $37,000 goal. Worth a look, folks: After all, they're offering glasses, mugs, growlers and demitasses for donors, as well as half-off espresso for life if you donate up to a certain level.

If you're interested in having a new coffee spot joining the good folks at Sparkroot and Brewd downtown, and new artisan local brews joining the likes of Borderlands and Thunder Canyon's new digs.

Check out their Kickstarter here, and their Facebook page (which features videos and regular updates) here for more info.
