BrewStubs Expands into Minnesota with Community-Driven Able Seedhouse + Brewery


AUSTIN, Texas -- March 19, 2021-- BrewStubs® continues its expansion into the upper Midwest, with the signing of Able Seedhouse + Brewery to their platform.

Over the last 6 years Able has become known in Minneapolis for its clean, crisp, drinkable beers that include First Light IPA, SuperGiant golden ale, and Ol’ Trusty the super light beer that pays homage to domestic light lagers like those made in St Paul since 1865. Minnesotans flock to Able’s giant patio to have a Trusty, explore a sour or hazy limited release, and eat some of the award winning BBQ from the resident food truck Animales BBQ Co.

The goal of Able Seedhouse + Brewery is also to bring agriculture and the community together. With head brewer Matt Anhalt on board, their goal of brewing hyper-limited, hyper-local beers, incorporating locally grown grain in each brew is a reality.

“Signing Able Seedhouse + Brewery is yet another great step in the growth of our business. In addition, Able’s values and community involvement are as important to us as the exceptional beers that they bring to the local craft beer population,” said David Sher, Co-Founder, President & CEO of BrewStubs. “We're excited that BrewStubs will be a part of the incredible craft beer community in Minneapolis, MN.”

Focused on locally grown seed, grain, malting and brewing, Able Seedhouse + Brewery believes that doing is a matter of being. Pairing that beer with exceptional Barbeque meats is a match made in heaven.

“Partnering with BrewStubs is a great way to reach more craft beer lovers and provide them with access to our many limited and special release beers,” said Matt Johnson, CEO for Able Seedhouse + Brewery. “The timing could not be better as we announce a grand reopening, introduce our new head brewer Matt Anhalt, and release his first Able beers into the wild. We’re looking forward to sharing some of our special beers on the BrewStubs platform very soon”

BrewStubs®, an online marketplace for craft beer, and Stay22, a solution that offers accommodation & travel services, unite forces through a partnership that introduces a new way to experience craft beer. Both startups are taking the concept of a ‘bar crawl’ and transforming it into a new type of experience-based travel. Through their respective technologies people now have a way to plan their brewery adventures and bar crawls from the comfort of their own home by: discovering new breweries; browsing through a catalogue of unique craft beers; selecting and pre-purchasing said drinks; and booking a comfortable, convenient and budget-friendly accommodation.

Andrew Lockhead, CEO and Co-Founder of Stay22 had this to say about the partnership: ‘User experience has always been at the heart of Stay22, it’s the main catalyst behind every important decision we make.

AUSTIN, Texas -- March 12, 2020


BrewStubs® has joined Capital Factory's Startup in Residence program to leverage support and resources in the Texas startup ecosystem as it goes to market with its unique e-commerce platform for the craft beverage industry. Working with Capital Factory provides BrewStubs access to a strong network of like-minded founders, mentors and investors who have built, scaled and sold startups themselves, as well as co-working space, event space, media production facilities, and other exclusive benefits.

BrewStubs serves the growing craft beer and beverage industry by offering consumers a centralized source to discover local craft beverages, reserve limited releases in advance (no more standing in long lines for that new IPA!), and gift beverages to friends, all with cashless payments and rewards.

For breweries and event producers, in addition to a better customer experience, BrewStubs provides additional revenue, robust patron data, product pre-sales, event ticketing, conversion of social traffic directly into sales, and exposure to new patrons via BrewStubs marketing.

BrewStubs is riding the wave of the still-booming craft beer and beverage market, with over 8,000 craft breweries and over $27 billion in annual craft beer sales in the U.S. That rapid growth, though, hasn't been matched with technology adoption.

"The industry is ripe for disruption," says founder David Sher. Sher, who has two decades of experience in guest services, box office management, and ticketing, including Live Nation and Tickets.com, started BrewStubs® to bring the digital transformation he experienced in the live entertainment vertical to the craft beverage industry. "People are still standing in line for craft beer limited releases, often only to find out that they're sold out. Taprooms are a great social experience, but they can be made even better with the right technology."

Sher recently relocated BrewStubs to Austin to take advantage of the city's thriving startup community and craft beer scene. "It was the right move," says Sher. "Within just the first few months after the move, we've added top notch advisors, developed some key partnerships, augmented our core management team, and joined Capital Factory's Startup in Residence program. There's a reason Austin keeps being named as the best city in America for entrepreneurs. We're definitely in the right place at the right time."
