St. Benjamin Brewing is getting closer to opening in Kensington - the brewery and pub will be housed in the former carriage house of 1800s brewery Theo Finkenauer on North Fifth Street. However, the partners aren’t interested in tearing the old building apart. Instead, they want to rebuild the facade with historic features, and to do that, they’ve launched a crowdfunding campaign on LuckyAnt.
A goal of $20,000 has been set, and you can kick in as little as $10 to help get there. That pledge will score you a branded pint glass plus 25% off your first beer at the finished bar, and the rewards just get better from there. If you like beer and you you’re a fan of restoring historic buildings, head over to throw in a few bucks.
