Martinis Story - "The Wedding Gift That Kept On Giving"
It all started back in 2012 with a late wedding gift that slowly became a passion. That wedding gift was a homebrewing starter kit complete with an easy to follow recipe for a wheat beer. We both love to cook and bake, so homebrewing felt very familiar. You put together a few ingredients and incorporate your yeast, then wait and hope everything works out, and if it does you share it with your friends.
Not long into our journey we discovered the world of brewing ciders and meads. We stumbled upon a recipe for cider that sounded interesting to try. However, we are not ones to go for subtle flavors and still made my own modifications to the recipe. What resulted was a big hit among our friends. A delicious and potent cider with a hint of cinnamon. We became legendary for bringing cider around to share at furry conventions and parties that was easy to drink and made you wonder what happened when you woke up the next day.
Slowly but surely over the years we learned more about the craft and began upgrading to better equipment and refining our recipes. All the while more and more people kept asking when we planned to start selling the ciders we were making. Once we began looking into how we could sell our cider, it seemed like it would be easy. We could run a brewery from the garage and sell some cider to justify the cost of all that beautiful equipment. After learning about some of the legal complications, it was clear to us that this had to be a much bigger project to be successful.
Last year I began to form the corporation and researching everything it would take to make Slightly Furry a reality. Within a few months I realized I couldn't pull it off alone and asked Spork (Ray) to join me in this adventure as a co-founder. Now we are getting ready to launch something very special and I am very excited for the future of Slightly Furry.
