Project Description

Look out everybody... Here comes the Bold Missy! (watch video above)

We're a brewery that creates well-loved styles of craft beer, each named in honor of the BOLD women that inspire us! In the typically male-dominated craft beer industry, we're blazing our own trail by celebrating women through our delicious brews!

The mission of Bold Missy Brewery is to have a diverse line-up of beloved beer styles. That means that anyone who walks in the door, whether they are just starting to drink craft beer or they're high-ranking members of Untappd, can find something to delight them.

 

We currently have five beers in our core line-up that are offered year-round:

In addition, we always have five rotating taps to play with. 

Some of our popular seasonal offerings so far:

...wait, glitter? Yes, you read that right, GLITTER! Before you ask, no it will not make your poop sparkly. But it did manage to make us go viral and get 200k+ views!

"But who is Missy? Are you Missy?"

No, I'm not Missy. There isn't an actual Missy. There's a Carol.

Back in the day, Carol had her first big corporate job with Tropicana. Every morning when she'd walk into the office, her boss would pop his head over the cubical and say "Look out everybody, here comes the Bold Missy!" Needless to say, the nickname stuck.

Carol cut her teeth in the beer biz as one of very few women working at Anheuser Busch. After spending a decade working for the "Evil Empire" it was time to move on to something new.

About five years ago, she had a revelation that she wanted to not only get back in the beer game, but start her own brewery that celebrates women and their accomplishments. 

We opened our doors to the public on May 13th, 2017 and just celebrated our two year anniversary! We started canning our first beer last October and now have two varieties on the shelves, our "Rocket Ride" IPA and "Find A Way" Tangerine Wheat. 

Our taproom is located in the NoDa neighborhood of Charlotte, and is one of the only breweries around with a funky mid-century/modern aesthetic. Next time you're in town, come cozy up to the bar and have a pint with us!

 

For our crowdfunding campaign, our goal is to raise $100K. We want to continue to grow our brand and distribution while still keeping up with our current demand. That means bigger stainless steel tanks, more kegs, many more dates with the mobile canning company, etc. We've got a good thing going right now with our set-up, but it definitely limits us from moving up to the next level.

We decided to Crowdfund with iFundWomen because we want to continue to inspire others. It's corny, we know, but this is such an important time for women. Every day we see firsthand how people are inspired by Carol's story and so excited to see a brewery that's not only female-owned, but that celebrates all the accomplishments and impact that so many women have had on all of us.

We could always go the usual route... you know, investors, banks, all that noise, but part of what makes our brewery so special is Carol and all her crazy ideas that have evolved into this amazing place. We'd much rather turn to the community who have already embraced and supported us and ask them to help us reach for the stars!

On that note...

If you love us and want to help us reach the next level, this is your special invitation to join the Bold Missy Booster Club! There are many levels to choose from (and some swanky swag along the way!). Take a look at our different tiers and rewards and see if anything jumps out at you.

We are so grateful for anything you can contribute, thank you so much for believing in the Bold Missy and helping us in any way you can!
