The total anticipated project cost for Fair Isle Brewery is $1,350,000, including production equipment, build out for the brewery and tasting room, working capital and a contingency buffer. The owners have committed $496,000 in equity to date.
Proceeds from the NextSeed raise, if the minimum is hit, will be used for production equipment and building out the brewery and tasting room. This includes purchasing the brewhouse, fermenters, cellar equipment, malt handling equipment, barrels and foeders. Construction in the production space includes water and electric improvements along with trench drains and a new floor. The tasting room build out consists of demoing existing walls and structures, adding a cold-room, bar and finishes, improving the bathrooms and purchasing furnishings and fixtures. Working capital will be used to pay for inventory, supplies, rent and salaries. This is particularly important for breweries making farmhouse beer, as the quickest turnaround beers take 90 days from brew to customer. This means Fair Isle will be brewing for four to five months prior to opening its doors to customers.
Funds raised above the $200,000 minimum will be put towards increasing the number of seats in the tasting room as well as refining and finishing out the space to achieve the desired environment and feel. The brewery will also use the funds to purchase additional oak vessels such as barrels and foeders. This additional oak capacity will allow for ample beer aging, increasing the selection of mature farmhouse ales that Fair Isle will offer when it opens.

Once the Issuer commences operations, the Issuer will share a percentage of each month’s gross revenue with the investors as a group until they are paid in full.
Monthly Revenue Sharing Percentage
Each investor will receive its proportionate share of the monthly payments made to the investors as a group.
The issuer anticipates a 6-month startup period for renovation and construction. If the 11th month after the fundraise falls within the first 6 months of revenue, the issuer will share 4.5% of revenue that month.
If the issuer generates $100,000 in revenue during this month, the issuer will make a $4,500 payment ($100,000 x 4.5% = $4,500) to investors. Since you invested with 1% of the total amount raised ($3,000 / $300,000 = 1.0%), you would receive a $45.00 payment in Month 11.
*The calculations above are mathematical illustration only and may not reflect actual performance. They do not take into account NextSeed fees of 1% on each payment made to investors. The exact length of time that it will take the Issuer to pay each investor in full cannot be known in advance since the Issuer's actual revenues may differ from its reasonable forecasts. If any balance remains outstanding on the maturity date, the Issuer is contractually required to promptly pay the entire outstanding balance due to each investor. Payment is not guaranteed or insured and investors may lose some or all of the principal invested if the Issuer cannot make its payments.
