Local Brewshop Seeks Goal

Local Brewshop on Center Street in downtown New Haven Luck and Levity is attempting to raise enough funding to purchase the equipment to build a Fermentation Center.  It's described as a social enterprise.  The project seems off to a healthy start on the fundraising platform known as Kickstarter.

"When you back this project, you'll help create a community-focused enterprise unlike anything New Haven or Connecticut has ever seen.  The fermentation center will include a commercial kitchen space that you and your friends and neighbors can use to work on DIY food products.  The kitchen space will also host classrooms and workshops by Luck and Levity staff, local culinary gurus, and community partners, such as CitySeed." (owner, Scott Vignola).

Scott also speaks of his experience in the Peace Corps.

The amount for the fundraiser to succeed is $20,000, and there are a number of incentives listed on the official fundraising page.  The shop is open Tuesday to Friday from 11am-8pm, Saturday: 11am-8pm, and Sunday 12-5pm.  See what all the commotion is about.
