The Brewtography Project Kickstarter Launches with Host of Events

The Brewtography Project Kickstarter Launches with Host of Events

Colorado breweries are joining together this month to support Discovering Colorado Breweries, a photographic essay about the craft beer industry captured through the lens of one man’s camera, The Brewtography Project.

So far, nine breweries have announced events with several others expected to join. Each brewery has volunteered their time and resources to help raise money to fund the Brewtography Project’s Kickstarter, which launches on May 13, 2016. The goal of the Kickstarter is to raise enough money to print a 100-page coffee table book measuring 11 x 13 inches. The book will contain select work from the Brewtography Project, a three-year collection of photographs from breweries, distilleries, and special events photographed by Dustin Hall. Dustin hopes to successfully fund the campaign quickly to allow for stretch goals that would increase the book to 200 pages. To get started, the Brewtography Project is hosting a month of events with the help of some friends from the craft beer industry. Dustin and his team have worked closely with breweries and partners to offer a unique experience that he believes will highlight Colorado’s incredible brewery culture.
