Where beer and cupcakes unite!

We need your help [please]!

We’re nearing the finish line! The end (or, really, the beginning) is in sight.

Have you heard of kickstarter.com? Well, if you haven’t, it’s a platform people use to raise money for a wide variety of projects. Dylan and I have created a project for Sweet and Stout, and we’re hoping you’ll stop by our page and check it out. Sweet and Stout has become more than just a blog, and with your help, we’ll be off and running sooner than we would be able to do by ourselves.

At least stop by and check out the video we made. It took a lot longer than we thought it would to create. (and a lot more curse words than originally anticipated) When this is all said and done, I think we’ll post some of the video clips that were a little too “colorful” for the final cut. Sitting in front of the camera was one of the hardest things I’ve had to do in a while. I think Dylan does a lot better on screen. I’m definitely more comfortable behind the camera, but I’m hoping we got our message across.

Make sure you check out our donation rewards too, they’re pretty awesome. We’re going to be getting custom pint glasses made from Custom Printed Beer Glasses, a local company here in Spokane. Our friends, John and Angela Gordon, have helped us out and made us some really cool vinyl stickers to give away. Also, we’ll be getting t-shirts made by Blue Button, a local non-profit screen printing company. Oh, and probably the coolest prize (if I do say so myself), will be an invitation to our launch party! The invite also includes 2 free cupcakes while you’re there! Yum.

2 of the 63 vinyl stickers we created. Weeding each one out by hand! (Took us a while, our logo is pretty detailed)

We want to thank everyone we’ve met along this journey of beer-cupcake exploration. Without your support, we couldn’t have made it this far. Please consider helping us to the next phase of our plan. When someone asks “Where can I buy one of your cupcakes?”, I’d love to be able to tell them. We are so close, and you can help get us there.
