One of the hardest things to do in the world today is own and operate your own small business. The daily challenges don't even factor in what's happened in the last 2.5 years either. The biggest of those factors has been rising costs.

I didnt open this business to become rich, but instead wanted to share my passion with the world. I hear all of your kind words, and absolutely love meeting you, and sharing many laughs!

2019 was one hell of a year, where we saw big growth, and it felt like the sky was our limit. Enter Covid. You all surprised me. I've poured my life, and almost every bit of free time I get back into this business, and your support during the toughest of times did not go unnoticed. You literally gave all that you could to keep my doors open, and allowed us to survive through the toughest spot we've ever witnessed.

The ever changing landscape of small business ownership hasn't been an easy one lately. My last delivery was about 70% higher than others of the same size. 70%!!! Couple that with rising food cost on the food trailer, and bam. Conundrum.

I always wanted to keep my products affordable, and not hold back the quality that I try to achieve with what I put out. Sadly, due to the giant raise in costs, we will have to go through a complete pricing overhaul starting next week.

This doesn't come down to a personal decision. I have sat back and watched our bank account sit at about the same value for the last 2 years. I hate that this is what has to happen, as I love you all. Our pints/mugs will increase by .50 cents each, with all other sizes increasing as well. Food prices will be evaluated over the next few weeks, and adjusted appropriately.

We know that Craft Beer isn't a necessity, and hope that you see where we are coming from.

We still hope to see your smiling faces, and continue to share all of the funny stories and laughs!

From our family to yours. Cheers

Honestly I'm just relieved it wasn't a post about closing your doors. Certainly a price increase is difficult but understandable right now.

As several people thought, I was afraid you were going to close. Very minimal increase, understand that your costs are going up, not under your control. See you soon

Well said and completely understandable. We can completely relate and support you and the biz 1000% Keep up the good work! We love our fellow local business owners 💜 Studio 8 Fitness team

Your price increase isn't going to kill us. We will still be back multiple times a week as usual. We love not only Rustic Leaf Brewing Company for their beer, food, and atmosphere but also Doug, Tiffany, (Lilly), Jared, and Janice as people...okay, and sometimes Jim 🤣 Thank you for all you've done for us and our community over the years. We will continue to love and support you...and spread the word. Keep doing what you're doing because you're doing it well. Can't wait to celebrate your upcoming anniversary in September. Screw 2020! Upward and onward!

IMO, your prices have always been reasonable! A .50 increase is completely understandable!!! Rustic Leaf Brewing Company has always been and will remain one of my favorite post ride stops for proper hydration! No matter the cost.

I'm surprised you could keep it so low! We will still be there just as often to support our favorite small busines.

You dont need to apologize, in almost 5 years you have not increased the cost of anything. I will gladly pay more for that quality nectar of the gods! Love the leaf!!

Please don’t apologize for this. It’s amazing you haven’t raised prices before. Your beer is still priced very reasonable especially since it’s great and you’ve got an awesome environment there to boot. If anyone actually complains, it says more about them.

Of course we will still come! I really thought at the beginning, and was worried, you were closing. Mike and I love it there and will absolutely keep coming! Most especially when you have Port 59 🤣🤪

You scared us all for a second! You do whatcha gotta do. We will still support you 🍻

No worries here....it's a modest increase, and well deserved. Thank you for the professional decency of letting your public know! Well done!

We are always happy to pay more for your great product. Your favorite lawyers need to drop in to see you soon!

Totally understand your decision. One of my favorite places to go and will still go!!🍻

We completely understand and support you! The world today has been challenging and ever changing. One Night Stans ♥️

A hard decision to make…but a necessary one. We will always support a local business that works so hard to maintain quality.

We love You, Rustic, beer and food truck! Your community has your back friend.💙🍻

The price of all things has increased. You have to increase as well to stay alive. It is understandable. Please don't feel you need to apologize or justify your prices. You are worth it. ❤️ 🍻

Absolutely support the decision and you! One of our favorite places!!

Understood, in this economy it must be tuff keeping your head above the water. Hopefully this will all shake out in the near future.

Very reasonable!! Completely understand 💙

I'd pay more than $ .50 extra

I am glad I didn't hear that u will be closing!!! Although I don't visit a lot the price increase is understandable. You guys will always be family to me. See ya soon!!!!!!!

Doug, the fact that you’ve held off doing this for so long is amazing. The slight increase in price is more than understandable. Can’t wait to stop by again next time I’m up there.

Will not keep us from coming in we support no matter and thank you for having such a great place to go and hang even with the kids sometimes ♥️

.50 is inconsequential. If it makes a difference to the consumer, you're already too broke to go out.
