*Last week actor Anthony Macky and Kainon Jasper Co-founders of Brewing BrothersLLC have announced their commitment to invest in Crowns & Hops Brewing Co. – 1st black-owned craft beer brand in Inglewood, California. The announcement was made at the Crowns & Hops Investor event held at the Miracle Theater in Inglewood, CA.
In August, Crowns & Hops Brewing Co. invited the community to own shares of the brand, and to date they have over 980 investors and have raised over $700,000 towards their $1 million goal. During the event, they were able to raise over $15,000 in just a few hours. On January 17, their capital increase will be closed, so time is running out to hold equity in this historic brand. Crowns & Hops is on track to become one of the first black, women, and veteran-owned breweries to raise $1 million through crowdfunding.
At the investor event, hosted by co-founders Beny Ashburn and Teo Hunter, guests were briefed on the development of their new restaurant and brewery Crowns Inglewood as well as plans on their 2022 staple beers, ‘BPLB’ Hazy IPA, “Freestyle Verses” West Coast IPA and “8 Trill Pils” Pilsner.
