Theoretically Brewing's Neighbourhood Beer Garden

by Kelti Baird in Lethbridge

Business Plan

The Concept: 

Lethbridge lacks a year-round, accessible, out-door venue for small or medium-sized private and public events. Our pocket parking lot can provide! Surrounded on 3 sides by buildings, we are seeking to create an outdoor space to be enjoyed in the summer time, or year-round! The Patio will be a community-focussed initiative, and will be accessible to community groups, non-profits, and associations wanting to host fund-raisers, awareness campaigns, classes, and markets. Between events, it will provide a casual hang-out spot, and transform the neighborhood into an incredible place to relax with friends. 

The space will host events through multi-venue arts and music festivals in the summer, be available for private lease in the shoulder seasons, and even host mid-winter beer-related events! When not packed with concert-goers, the patio will be available for relaxed daily use, outdoor brewing classes, and so much more. 

The Partners: 

Theoretically Brewing is proud to partner with local concert and event planning committees to bring in a wide-range of entertainment for all audiences. We are proud to be a community-focussed brewery with many excellent partnerships already established! Of course, we also look forward to growing our partnerships and welcome every opportunity to do so!

The Timeline:

With your  help we can be up and running for the 2018 summer season! We are looking to purchase equipment and furniture for the outdoor space, perform minor renovations, and increase the accessibility of the space from our interior! As the weather warms up we will be able to make purchases for outdoor furniture from local producers, and provide a beautiful space for relaxing and hanging out! Evenings will be booked with local talent and encourage participation in local music, food, and culture.
