Let's Catch Up

Joe Getz

It’s been over 2 years since our last blog post!  Two years!  We’re making a promise right here and right now to keep everybody way more updated on what’s up at Kurant.  In this post, we’ll run down some of the big things that have happened since our last post.  We moved!

Our humble beginnings started with renting space inside Round Guys Brewing Co in Lansdale.  That worked out great for us for about the first 6 months.  If anybody has ever been to Round Guys it’s a very small brewpub.  Our equipment jammed in with theirs was a very tight fit and we quickly outgrew the space.  It didn’t take us long to find a new home renting space in Perkasie PA from Free Will Brewing Co.  They occupy a huge building which they’re slowly growing into, but they carved out a space just for us.  The additional space has let us start to do fun things like barrel age cider and make enough cider to can!  The move to Perkasie was great for production, but it didn’t give us any space for a taproom still.  We wanted a taproom very badly so we started searching for the perfect space.

Our search for taproom space took us all over southeastern PA.  We looked in Montgomery, Bucks, and Philadelphia counties.  Ultimately we knew we wanted to be in Philadelphia.  That left us to pick a neighborhood.  Philadelphia is full of neighborhoods that would be a great home for Kurant.  We looked at properties in Brewerytown, East Passyunk, Fishtown, Kensington, and Northern Liberties.  Ultimately we purchased a property in Fishtown and joined the rest of the cool kids making fermented craft beverages such as Philadelphia Distilling, Evil Genius, Fishtown Brewpub, St Benjamin’s Brewing, Fermentary Form, Red Brick Distilling, Rowhouse Spirits, and a few we’re sure we’re forgetting.  To say it’s a booze destination is an understatement.  We started construction on our Fishtown taproom back in January and plan to be open by the end of August this year.  We’ve been posting updates of the process on Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter so make sure to follow us on all our social media.  By the end of the year we’ll have a Fishtown taproom and it’s going to be awesome.

We started canning!  That was a huge step for us and a very big deal.   Back in November of last year we launched our first cans.  We started canning Bees, our dry cider with local honey first, and have since started canning Earth which is our dry-hopped cider.  Both of those ciders are now available in cans.  In conjunction with canning we needed somebody to sell all this cider we were making.  We signed with Muller Inc, a great wholesale partner last year to cover Philadelphia and the surrounding five counties, and then very recently we’ve signed with Nevulis Beverage to sell our products in the Lehigh Valley, Harrisburg, and all the counties in between!  We’re now distributed in 34 counties across eastern PA and we are currently looking into our first areas in other states.  We’re growing rapidly and it’s all thanks to our amazing customers!

We get asked a lot about where customers can buy Kurant Cider.  Unfortunately we don’t have a specific answer usually.  We have some great accounts who pretty consistently stock at least one of our products.  Both of Free Will Brewing Co’s taprooms almost always have cans of Bees and Earth available so we suggest stopping there first.  If you’re looking for a Kurant product in your area you can contact us through our website via email or direct message us on any of our social media accounts and we’ll do our best to direct you to the nearest location with Kurant in stock.  

So all in all its been a really crazy 2 years.  We’re extremely excited about opening in Fishtown soon.  We’ll be sure to post more info about that process as construction continues right up to the grand opening.  We have lots of great events coming up this summer and we promise we’ll keep our events calendar loaded up so you can plan to attend as many events as possible.  The next event coming up will be a special tasting with our friends at Boardroom Spirits in Lansdale Thursday 5/4 at 7pm in their tasting room.  We’ll be sampling a special cocktail made with their spirits and Kurant cider as well as sampling both Bees and Earth ciders.

Our New Home + Update

Joe Getz

Finally, we have a home. Kurant proudly announces that it will be joining forces with those crazy gorillas over at Round Guys Brewing Company to offer the best craft ciders alongside RGBC’s brilliantly crafted beers! Located and produced at the brewpub in Lansdale, Kurant Cider plans to offer multiple draft lines of our flagship and specialty ciders along with bottles for immediate take out. In addition, don’t have be a square –grab one of our awesome t-shirts, stickers, or anything else we slap a logo on while stopping in at the brewpub!  Take note, we plan to be distributing in Philadelphia 5 county area as soon as possible. So tell your friends and empower your barkeeps!

On a more serious note, we couldn't be more excited about joining forces with Round Guys. They have been a tremendous help in our process since the very beginning.  With their support and our technical knowledge, we  intend to create a collaborative environment to inspire the Kurant cidermakers and the Round Guys brewers to push the very limits of their respective beverages. Check your emails and keep an eye on our social media as we shall be announcing a date for previewing delicous Kurant ciders at the Round Guys Brewpub. Stay tuned, we'll have a number of ciders on draft for the first time ever.  To aid in your life scheduling, we plan to conquer the region starting January of 2015. Tell your friends! Tell your barkeeps! Kurant is coming!

It's been a long road for us to get to this point and we appreciate all the help and motivation we've received over the last few months. Without the gracious support of all of our friends, family, and most importantly, you, our loyal Kurant fans, we wouldn't have been able to make any of this possible. A huge thanks to everybody who's followed us on our journey so far. The wait is over...

 

An Update

Joe Getz

We've been extremely busy over the last few weeks getting everything in line for our big jump into the marketplace.  We've experienced some setbacks including losing our location, that was fun, but we bounced back and are charging forward again.  As the summer comes to an end and the fall starts to move in, we're more excited than ever to bring our ciders to your local stores, bars, and ultimately your homes.

We wanted to take a minute to update all our new friends on when and where you'll find Kurant soon.  The location of our production facility and tasting room is still under wraps.  We don't like to get ahead of ourselves and until the ink is completely dry on that deal the location will remain a bit of a mystery.  We're hoping to announce our location very soon.  We couldn't be more excited.  We think you're going to love it.

Once we have our location locked down we'll start full scale production.  You can expect to see Kurant cider on draught first and then on store shelves.  If you want Kurant in your local bar, tell the bar or restaurant about us and how excited you are for our ciders.  For now, you can try all of our ciders at a few of the local festivals we'll be attending over the next few weeks.  Check our events page for more details.  We're rolling out some of our fall line-up starting at Pour The Core next weekend.

We'd like to take a minute to thank everybody for the amazing reception and feedback at all of the events we've attended so far.  As a new brand we love to hear feedback from everybody.  We appreciate all the check-ins on your favorite apps, communication on our social media, and especially the face to face conversations we've had with so many people over the last two months.  If you haven't already, sign up for our newsletter on the homepage for the latest Kurant news.  

Thanks!
