We won! So what now?
Wow! What an honor!
In case you missed it, Mystery was recently featured as a contestant on CNBC’s new show Crowd Rules. In it, we competed against two other companies for a $50,000 prize, voted on by a studio audience. We were lucky enough to take that prize home.
So what happens now?
Well, we’re happy to report that our taproom is open. It’s called the Mystery Brewing Public House and we’ve already gotten at great shoutout in Durham Magazine. This weekend we celebrate its Grand Opening with a full Saturday of live music, new beers, and great pizza (yeah, Pie Pushers!), but that’s not it – we’re hosting the incomparable Scott Barkan and Kira Velella on Friday night, and we’re releasing beer Friday, Saturday, Sunday, AND Monday.
We’re also happy to report that we’ve already invested in more kegs. Our first batch arrived just this last week and we’ve been busy filling them with beer since then. What’s more, you can expect to see Mystery Brewing Company beer in bottles (no – not stubbies, yet – probably bombers) by the end of the summer.
Finally, we’re looking at growing! Over the course of the next year we’re planning on adding way more fermentation, putting way more kegs on the market, and getting smaller and smaller (and maybe someday even smaller) bottles. In addition, we’re looking at the possibility of a new seasonal brand, which means 5 offerings every season, and – of course – a lot more experiementals and one-offs.
We hope you can join us, it’s going to be a lot of fun.
