Valley man fundraising to open Phoenix brewery
PHOENIX -- The Valley could soon be home to another brewery if one resident can raise enough money online.
Phoenix resident Jared Dubina is trying to collect enough online donations through a Kickstarter campaign to open Dubina Brewing Company.
In a video, Dubina said he and his father came up for the idea of opening their own brewery after his grandfather passed away. The family traveled to the Czech Republic to get in touch with their heritage and became inspired to make their own beer.
One year later, Dubina said his family has the business plan and recipes needed to launch a brewery. He said he launched the Kickstarter so he doesn't begin his business in debt and can instead focus on the brewing process.
If he raises enough money, Dubina said he plans to open the brewery in the north Phoenix area.
