Looking for updates on start of construction and when we can sample the new beers on tap !!!!
Paul
Also late to the party, but am interested in a $10K-$25K investment. Other than randomly checking, how would I get a notification should anyone back out? BuffBrew interested in raising additional funds?
Martin
Any update on the construction and the completion date?
Catherine
I am late to the party, but would love to invest a full $1,000. Is there anyway anyone can help me? It says I can only invest $100. :/
Sarah
Can I be put on the waiting list for anyone that backs out?
Nathan
I’m not sure if my commenting here will trigger an email to you,but Someone just backed out who had put in a reservation for $10,000. I was able to put in the $500 I originally wanted to.
Dineth
Hi,apoligies if this has already been asked. I current live out of state and one of my best friends here is a Houston native. She’s about to move back to Houston, and I think the free beers for life would be a perfect going away present. Is there any ...

That is amazing to hear, thanks Randy! If it wasn’t for your good news we would have never found our test market for fermented horse milk stout and kumis cream ale!

My investment in Buffbrew Taproom is showing as "reserved" / "pending". How long do I need to wait to confirm my investment by making it go from a reserved investment to an active investment? Thank you!
Aimee
Ignore my previous comment. Vivian from NextSeed answered it on webchat. For those who have similar questions, here was Vivian's answer: "Cash is "reserved" while the business is still fundraising and you can change or cancel it at any time until 48 ...

2 questions: Have 100 $1000+ investors signed up at this point? And what happens if the business gets sold? Thanks!
Branden
I see the projected finiacial statement in the disclosure, but is there any way the company can disclose their past financial statements? The numbers will be very different in comparing the old tap room to the new obviously, but I’d like to see a his ...

Buffbrew Taproom
ISSUER
Branden, since the old taproom is a separate entity with different investors and privacy requirements, we are unable to disclose that information. Additionally, the taproom business is going to be significantly different than the brewery model in re ...

Branden
Ok, thank you for the response. I will likely invest, but was hoping the brewery could disclose a little more financial info so that I would feel more comfortable investing a little more. I understand that neither party is obligated to do so, thanks ...

When does the investment officially start (ie, when does the 6 month ramp-up period begin)? Is it at the end of the funding period (Currently 12/29/17 and 122 days remaining)? Looking forward to joining the Herd - had a blast at the 5th Anniversary ...

Thanks, Daniel. The startup period begins a month after the campaign closes, and it's meant to cover our expected construction timeline. There's a possibility that this could vary a bit, depending on when the campaign actually closes and when we open ...

Matthew, thanks for spotting that typo. Tre is actually the Volunteer Wrangling Ops Manager, no clue how we missed that. See you at Sawyer!
Trudie
ok getting really geeky here... I note that the offering is a contingent debt instrument for tax purposes. Can i assume that a projected payment schedule will be available for those calculations, once the multiplier is determined?

Christopher
I'm an out of towner. If I invest, can I delegate the free beer to one very beloved person? Thanks!
Buffbrew Taproom
ISSUER
Hey Christopher, unfortunately, the daily free beer for life can’t be delegated, but I appreciate you wanting to delegate your beer to me. Thanks, that really does mean a lot to me.
Andres
I apologize for the dumb question, but regarding the "free beer for life" Is it only valid when you visit? or can you accrue them? Prost!
Adrian
lol i have a feeling not, but this would be awesome.
Buffbrew Taproom
ISSUER
Andres, there is no such thing as a dumb question, only dumb sayings about dumb questions not being dumb. That being said, unused daily allotments do not accrue.
Benjamin
I have a question regarding the nextseed structure for bonus rewards. If my wife and I want to contribute an amount, say $2,000, can it be treated as $1,000 each (as to get free beer for life for each of us) or do we have to have 2 separate nextseed ...

Eric
Hey Benjamin, thanks for asking this! My wife and I had the exact same question and I had just came here to ask as well. Cheers!
Buffbrew Taproom
ISSUER
Hello Benjamin, you would have to make a $1,000 investment each as separate investors. You can definitely drink your free beers for life together, though.
Thomas
Excited to be a part of this next step for BuffBrew. Met you guys way back when you rolled out Sick in the Head at Sugar Land Saucer. I loved your beer and your community focus. This is gonna be fun!

Sherri and Tiffany, we can’t wait to see your names up there as well! We’ll keep rolling those wild brews out and as long as you keep drinking them! FYI, Thin Mint Stout is partial to y’all too!

Hey Jordan, we are actually over 300 feet from the closest elementary school. We have retained counsel on this to make sure that we are well within all legal requirements.

Just Invested, looking forward to this expansion and wanted to say thanks to BBBC for having this opportunity to have community support.
Michelle
I am really looking forward to this much deserved upgrade. I am excited to be a part of Buffalo Bayou's future. Congratulations you guys and I believe there is more success to come!

We are just as excited for you to join our herd, Michelle! Thanks, and we can’t wait to experience that success with you!

Just sent the total invested over the $250,000 minimum....looking forward to the beer for life!
Buffbrew Taproom
ISSUER
Sean, that is awesome. We really can’t express how amazing this is and how appreciative we are. We look forward to enjoying every one of those brews with you!
Mark
Does the 20 person party included with a $10,000 investment include any beer or food for those 20 people, or only the reservation of the space?
Buffbrew Taproom
ISSUER
Mark, the party includes beer from the brewery and food from our taproom kitchen for a party of 20!
Robert
If I invest $2,000 can I have the option of having 2 free beers a day? I would want the option to drop by with a friend and treat them to a beer.
Buffbrew Taproom
ISSUER
We appreciate your generosity, Robert, but we can only honor one free beer per investor. Maybe your friends would like to invest, too!
Darold
From Austin, but visit Houston a few times a year. Can you clarify how the virtual locker works? Are bombers held until you show? Is there a time limit? Alternatively, are they only avail in the month of issue? Thanks!
Logan
I'm also interested in Darold's question. Probably visit Houston once a month from Austin but it would be nice to be able to keep my bombers in the "virtual locker" in the event that I don't come to town one month
Buffbrew Taproom
ISSUER
Great question, Darold. To clarify, each month, you select two bombers from a pool of current bomber offerings to reserve for your “locker.” If you deplete your bomber locker to less than 2, you can purchase additional bombers to bring your locker ...

Hi, can you please confirm that the "Free beer for life. 1 beer per day in perpetuity" means the Investor can imbibe on any beer on tap (regardless of cost) for free for every day that the Investor (Invested $1,000 or more) is living? Thanks!
Buffbrew Taproom
ISSUER
Sean, your understanding is correct. One “unit” per day is the only stipulation, but if it is on the tap wall then it is up to you if it is in your mug. While the terms state free beer for "life," I am awaiting response from the legal team to see i ...
