Banded Horn Brewing Reaches Kickstarter Goal
Banded Horn Brewing Co., a new craft brewery at the Pepperell Mill Campus, has successfully reached their $20,000 goal with 2 days to spare of their Kickstarter fundraising campaign. Ian McConnell, founder of Banded Horn, started this crowd-funding campaign in order to build a tasting room for his brewery. Banded Horn will start brewing their first batches of beer within the next couple of days, and once the tasting room is built it will be open for the public to enjoy the beer at its source.
We did it!! Crossed the 20,000 mark on our @kickstarter with 3 days to spare!! Many thanks for all of the support. #bandtogether

Rewards included Banded Horn merchandise such a t-shirts, drinking glass, mugs, bottle-openers, an invitation to the grand opening, or even a private tour.
