A Leslieville man now has a bit more help to make his dream of opening up a brewery here in Rocky Mountain House a reality.

Paul Korolew was awarded the Startup Entrepreneur Award at the Success 4 Business Expo. This first place prize consisted of $1000 cash from Collins Barrow, program funding from Catapult Entrepreneurs, graphic design from Visual Resolve Graphics, Brand coaching from Dwayne Holland and Digital Advertising from Openhwy.
 
Korolew says he's very honoured to be recognized like this to help kick start his new business venture.

"It's pretty exciting" he said. "I think that people are really going to enjoy what I’m going to bring. Just the quality and freshness of beer, the unique atmosphere and small setting. I just feel that Rocky is missing that and a lot of people are looking for that little niche that is missing." 

Currently, Korolew is working with various coaches from RABC and Catapult Entrepreneurs to open the only craft brewery unique in the Rocky Mountain House area. He will be offering craft beers and ales for wholesale, as well as a tasting room experience for the end consumer.

According to a release, Korolew started as an amateur craft brewer 10 years ago, experimenting with beer kits. Seven years ago, he started to experiment with ‘all grain brewing’ for the challenge and to try to perfect a unique tasting experience.

The business is anticipated to be opened by May 2018.
