Miami, FL (PRWEB) September 24, 2013
The J Wakefield Brewing crowdfunding campaign has been known to offer some very special perks to its funders. Perks that have been so desirable that they have enabled the campaign to smash previous craft beer crowdfunding records, such as raising over $55,000 within the first 24 hours. The latest “limited” perk is sure to get the attention of craft beer enthusiasts everywhere.
As part of a special collaboration reward, a craft beer lover is going to be given the opportunity to participate and create their own beer brand. Working side-by-side with a few of the industry's best known names, a very special few will be working with J Wakefield Brewing and Cigar City Brewing’s Head Brewer, Wayne Wambles, to create their very own American craft beer.
The perk will allow a group (the donor and up to three friends) to be involved from start to finish, in the creation and execution of a collaboration beer between Cigar City Brewing and J Wakefield Brewing. This is a once in a lifetime offer to be a part of something unique, as you, Johnathan Wakefield and Wayne Wambles will work together on this epic project, which will be brewed at the JWB facility in Miami. At the end of the day, and after working with the old Pro and the new Pro, someone will have had the opportunity to create and place their name on the next great American craft beer! This epic project is a craft beer enthusiasts' dream come true.
In 2013 RateBeer.com, an independent website for craft beer enthusiasts, that is widely recognized as the most accurate and most visited source for beer information, voted Cigar City Brewing the “Top Brewer” and the brewery's “Hunahpu’s Imperial Stout - Brandy Barrel Aged”, the “Top Beer” in the state of Florida.
BeerAdvocate.com has given the brewery a “BA” score of 100 (World-class).
In February of 2013, an article on Craft Brewing Business asked brewmaster, Wayne Wambles, to name a few awards his Porters have won. Wambles quickly replied, “the 2012 U.S. Beer Open Championships, Gold Medal Kalevipoeg, Baltic porter category; 2011 World Beer Championships, Jose Marti, 90 points, 'Exceptional'; 2011 Best Florida Beer Competition, Gold Medal, Jose Marti, Imperial Porter; and the 2012 Best Florida Beer Competition, Gold Medal, Jose Marti, Imperial Porter.”
Johnathan Wakefield has been in Florida making unique craft beers since 2007, when it began with a simple home-brewing kit that was purchased and installed in a garage. There was no formal training, just culinary instincts and passion for the art of brew. For three years recipes were designed, fermented, and enjoyed by friends and family. Finally came a day of reckoning when this small garage brewer was invited to Tampa, Florida to brew his concoctions in a professional environment and on a large scale. The results speak for themselves. Johnathan's brews quickly began to garner the attention of craft beer aficionados and earned two of the top five spots in the 2013 World Rankings. Now Johnathan is going to share his passion for great beer and bring professional craft beer to a new level in Miami.
