J. Wakefield Brewing breaks fundraising record

Miami- Brewer Johnathan Wakefield just finished one of the most successful online fundraising campaigns for a brewery, closing his Crowdbrewed.com campaign this week.

In the end, Mr. Wakefield raised $111,990 to start J. Wakefield Brewing.

Thanks to the help from some industry friends like Cigar City Brewing, Evil Twin Brewing, along with several Miami chefs, and a promised reserve society, Wakefield broke his initial fundraising goal of $55,000 just 26 hours after beginning his push for funds.

Congratulations to Johnathan Wakefield, the Where’s Waldo of Florida craft beer.
