Raising the money necessary to start ModernTimes was, for me, the most daunting element of starting a brewery. I do not personally have anywhere near $1.25 million, and yet that is what I determined it would cost. So how to get that much money without resorting to felonious hijinks?
Well, now that fundraising is over, I can tell you all about it (the SEC requires private offerings to be just that, private). I wrote a blog post for Beerpulse detailing the ins-and-outs of raising this chunk of change, so you can head over there to give it a read.
