Kickstarter-Funded Book Store Bar to Open in Indianapolis

books&brewsAfter raising $17,264 using Kickstarter, Jason Wuerfel is getting ready to open a bar/ used bookstore in Indianapolis.

The microbrewery will sell used books, and will also serve beer in order to supplement its income. The store will brew its own beer inspired by books. Check it out:

Books & Brews will brew on a three 55-gallon pot brewing system that will net approximately one barrel of beer per batch. Keeping with the literary theme of the business, all of Books & Brews’ beers will be named after classic literary works, characters or authors, such as Alice’s Adventures in Witbier, The Canterbury Tales Pale Ale, Charlie and the Chocolate Stout, and Clifford the Big Red Ale.

Readers can even trade in old books for beer. (Via IndyStar).
