Introduction: Patrick's Gluten Free Brewery
Hello, My name is Patrick Mousaw. I was born November 10, 1976. By day, I am a chemical engineer who scales up pharmaceuticals. By night, I am a father of four who homebrews and dreams of scaling up my beer making process and owning my own brewery. I dream of freedom to do what I love: make beer!
What will make my brewery so different? It will be a gluten free brewery. Naysayers claim that gluten free beer cannot be brewed to taste as good as gluten filled beer. These critics are wrong, and I have the recipes and followers to prove it! The next step I need to do to make my brewery closer to reality is to start buying larger equipment that will help automate the beer making process. Additionally, I need to rent a commercial kitchen/store front so that I can start selling my beer commercially. This is what I will do with the $25,000 prize money – buy the larger equipment and set up this equipment in a commercial kitchen/store front and start brewing at a larger scale. The prize money would allow me to sell my beer on the side and earn extra money which would be put toward a bigger and better brewery down the road. Additionally, I would use the Jack Daniels barrel I would win too… I would age gluten free beer in it!
My family is 100% committed to making my dream a reality, building a brewery is an expensive endeavor, but I know I will be unstoppable if I start small and grow into my dream. The Jack Daniels Independence Project prize winnings would get me one step closer to giving me the freedom to do what I love. I will be able to live freely and brew sensibly.
I’m not the only one dreaming of owning my own brewery…some of my biggest fans wanted to voice their support as well…. here is their best rendition of “Take me out to Pat’s brewery” – (Sung to “Take me out to the ball game”)
Take me out to Pat’s brewery. Take me out to his pub. I like his gluten free beer the best. Tastes just like barley, put it to the test! For its root, root, root for Pat’s brewery, he brews the best that he can– for he’s one, two, three steps away from the freedom to live out my dream!
