spencer devonHe hopes to raise $70,000 toward the opening of the brewery and restaurant on George Street in downtown Fredericksburg. The campaign runs until Sept. 18.

In his message on the site, he writes that he completed nearly all the demolition of the nearly 6,000 -square-foot space nearly a month ago, hired a general contractor and is working through the permit process with the city.

“The only thing keeping us from opening, are funds.  With each turn we seem to face yet another fiscal obstacle.  Without your help, we will not be able to open on time,” he writes.

He expects to get the equipment in September and open doors in October.
