A Milwaukee brewery known for crowdsourcing recipes has plans to open three new taprooms in the coming years.
MobCraft Beer, which has its flagship brewery and taproom in Walker's Point, is raising up to $2.25 million in an equity crowdfunding campaign to expand the business, the company announced in a news release.
As of Tuesday afternoon, the campaign had raised more than $316,000.
MobCraft said it plans to open another taproom in Wisconsin in Waterford and in Denver and Woodstock, Ill. The plan is to open those three new taprooms in the next three years.
“The COVID pandemic really made us dig into our business and explore the direction we wanted to expand in the future," said MobCraft Founder Henry Schwartz. "Pilot breweries in communities that vibe with our crowdsourced mentality are what we want to build, and customers who appreciate the variety of beers we brew are who we want to serve.”
The new taproom in Denver is expected to be the first to open in the expansion, MobCraft said. The spot in the Curtis Park neighborhood near the River North Arts District and Coors Field should open in the winter of 2021. The taproom is a joint venture with Colorado-based Mexican restaurant Dee Tacko.
Mobcraft said the Waterford location will open in spring of 2022. The Woodstock taproom is set to open in spring of 2023.
MobCraft said it would also like to open locations in Chicago, Madison and the Fox Valley.
The brewery will continue to crowdsource its beer recipes, as it has since 2013.
