  1. Hello all To do our part during this emergency, we have updated the MicroFinder app to allow people to find micro-distilleries making hand sanitizer. Please drop us a line at info@microshiner.com and let us know whether you prefer to be listed in the app as a Distillery or for Hand Sanitizer (if you go with Hand Sanitizer, you can always sell them a bottle as well https://apps.apple.com/us/app/microfinder-by-microshiner/id1384291726 cheers ~ Brian & Cobey
  2. Want to get your spirits in front of people? Send Brian a bottle (or 2 or 10) to have your products featured in our next Shot in :60 video. Message us here or by email at info@microshiner.com to get started. stay safe, and cheers!
  3. @38° - we would be open to this if it was all traceable and all businesses were independently owned and participants in the certification system. The reason we include mash and fermentation is because we seek to incentivize shortened supply chains. Our goal is transparency and accountability that ensures capital is flowing to those businesses that are truly operating in a distributed and localized fashion and/or whatever value proposition that particular consumer is seeking to support. The scheme you are describing falls within those guidelines. Would love to discuss further!
  4. @JustAndy - we could not agree more. Without a means to validate, certification is worthless. Our system places the ability to instantaneously validate right into the hands of the consumer.
  5. @cornelius_b - we are in the process of doing just that. We have sought to partner on this initiative with both ADI and ACSA, to no avail, so we aim to move forward on our own. As demonstrated by this thread, there is a significant vested interest within both of those bodies to not pursue transparency, certification, and supply chain validation measures. Since we feel this is of critical import to the future of micro-distilling, we are working toward a certification program that will allow consumers to track and validate the supply chain, production method, and carbon footprint of their craft
  6. @LaChascona - visit us at Microshiner.com and let us know what you think. Cheers!
  7. Hello all I wanted to clear up a little confusion about our recent fundraising effort on Kickstarter that was brought to my attention by one of your fellow distillers. We are not charging distilleries to be in the app, which is why we did a Kickstarter. It was a fundraising campaign to enhance our ability to add distilleries that are not currently in the app, something we cannot currently do in a cost-effective way. Because, as this distiller told us in an email, the app is more valuable to any one distillery if it contains all of the other distilleries ("to be truly useful TO T
  8. @LuckyTiger We recently ran a Kickstarter campaign to fund the necessary enchancements to add new distilleries but unfortunately fell short of our goal. We are looking forward to revisiting it soon, so shoot us an email and get on the mailing list. We'd love to hear more about your distillery. cheers!
  9. We are excited to tell you how you can ensure your distillery and spirits are properly listed in the MicroFinder app. MicroFinder is the world's only location-based mobile app for discovering craft spirits and finding micro-distilleries. Make sure that your distillery and spirits are listed with a pledge to our Kickstarter campaign! https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/microshiner/microfinder-find-micro-distilleries-discover-craft?ref=project_build# Become a backer today!
  10. Thanks for the feedback @Thatch! Some of it has to do with map extent. It will only show distilleries within 100km of the user location (i.e. map center), and there is some nuance to that when you zoom out and/or move around from the default view. We will continue to investigate. Thanks again for helping us improve !
  11. Hello Thatch! Currently, we use the ADI/ACSA criterion to qualify the distilleries and spirits on our platform. We're not certain why you are only seeing two in the State of Ohio, as there are appears to be 5 or more, including Indian Creek, Buckeye, and Mill Street, but thanks for bringing it to our attention. Can you share a screenshot? We will look into it! Please note that not every distillery or spirit that meets the criteria has yet been added to our database. cheers!
  12.

  13. With Ezra's being acquired and the resulting hiatus, Binny's and Ace's Independent are the two largest online retailers still fulfilling to large portions of the US. There are numerous other smaller operations, depending on what market you are seeking to target. Once you have found one, please let us know so we can add it to your cart in our app (if you're on it). If you need some help, drop us a line. https://www.microshiner.com/download-mobile-app
  14. You've put your heart and soul into your spirits, and they are amazing. Let's make sure they look that way too. You never get a second chance to make a first impression, and in today's image and video focused world, having high quality images of your product is more important than ever. An investment in professional photographs of your core product line for your website, marketing materials, and online presence will pay dividends well beyond their cost. MicroShiner is a full service media production company dedicated to serving the craft spirit community. And where others can on
  15. Really impressed to see the Brewers Association come out and say this. Thought we would share. https://www.brewbound.com/news/brewers-association-new-brewers-set-realistic-growth-expectations Setting a ceiling for scale and reverse-engineering your business model from there is paramount to success in the craft space. As they say, micro is the growth engine of craft.
