Investing in BIRCUS gives ownership in a brand that benefits you and the community.
Our goal is to make the Ludlow Theatre a one-of-a-kind tourist destination and make one of the most beloved, talked-about, tweeted and engaging brands of local beer. To date, over 50,000 people have attended our events, a number estimated to skyrocket to over 100,000 annually with the addition of BIRCUS. Establishments serving BIRCUS will have access to live circus acts like fire juggling, hula hooping and keg walking, increasing revenue and using guerrilla marketing for our brand.
“One for All!” reflects the communal experiences of a raising a glass, seeing a circus and toasting to all. This motto will be emphasized at the theatre year round on Tuesdays, bringing beer cheer near the start of the work week. Individuals who invest $5,000 choose one Tuesday in a calendar year when a 100% of the profits go towards a charity or community group of their choice. Proceeds from 26 Tuesdays a year will help fund the Circus Mojo Foundation, a nonprofit entity providing circus scholarships, job opportunities and free programming to improve individual lives and the community. At the $10,000 level, individuals choose one month in a calendar year for priority access to our VIP balcony and Brewer’s view areas for private events.
Investors also can take pride in creating local jobs and supporting local businesses. We hire neighborhood artisans whenever possible to customize our props and signs, using Steidle Fabricating in Bromley as well as Bluegrass Iron Works and Ideal Supply in Ludlow. As the brewery grows, we plan to restore the marquee to highlight upcoming events and talent. Restoring the marquee will invite travelers to visit the cafes and restaurants, retail shops and art studios, and distillery and brewery. Everyone wins.
