Dead Cowboy Brewing, one of the emerging breweries in the Dallas-Fort Worth area, is canceling their Kickstarter funding campaign this week after hitting a snag with their future location.
The location Dead Cowboy has planned to lease and renovate was unexpectedly sold by the owner in a deal that was “too good to be true,” stifling Dead Cowboy’s dreams of opening their brewery in the heart of Royse City on Main Street, at least for the moment.
Joining the Kickstarter trend started by other up-and-coming breweries in the area like Rabbit Hole Brewing and Armadillo Ale Works, Dead Cowboy was using Kickstarter to raise the necessary funds to renovate the building and install their brewery in Royse City. Without a building, they’ve reigned in their Kickstarter movement for now.
There will be another Dead Cowboy Kickstarter in the near future, but this one will only be to run an order of shirts for Dead Cowboy’s fans, since no one will be receiving rewards now that the Kickstarter has been cancelled.
But don’t worry about the Dead Cowboy crew. They recently won BrewRiot’s People’s Choice Award, and they will continue to do events around DFW while they look for a new location to keep people talking about their brews.
Until they find a new place to call home, check out their free tastings on June 16 at Jack Mac’s Swill & Grill, June 20 at Craft and Growler, and July 27 at Zola’s in Bishop Arts.
