The Longmont Economic Development Partnership (EDP) awarded Brewmented a $7,000 grant as part of the Advance Longmont Target Industries Grant program to assist new and expanding businesses in target industries exemplifying strong economic clustering in Longmont, Colorado.
Brewmented, located at 900 S. Hover is a multifaceted brewing supply store. Supporting the entire spectrum of the brewing industry, their warehouse supports sales across the nation with a strong online presence. They have expanded their business with a more local presence and are engaging the community with not only the supply side, but the education and advocacy side of the craft brewing industry as well.
“The $7,000 grant that Brewmented was awarded by the Longmont Economic Development Partnership helped us to fund the buildout of the taproom, and leveraged our previous investments associated with construction of the retail storefront and brewery. The support of the Longmont Economic Development Partnership and the City of Longmont in general was key to our success in the opening of Brewmented,” noted Brewmented owner, Bill Campbell.
The Advance Longmont Target Industries Grant is designed to support Longmont’s primary and local businesses in their expansion efforts. Utilizing Envision Longmont and the Advance Longmont Target Industries, the Advance Longmont Target Industries Grant functions by attracting and supporting new and expanding businesses to the area, assisting business owners with building improvements, and assisting with the cost of permitting and licensing, regulatory compliance, equipment purchases or exterior and façade improvements. This program reimburses eligible expenses, up to the pre-approved grant amount, for projects that submit an application and meet all of the criteria of the grant program. Funded by the City of Longmont, the Advance Longmont Target Industries Grant awards up to $10,000 with a priority given to businesses already established in Longmont.
