UPDATE: Brewnuts Advances in National Small Business Competition

Posted By on Mon, Nov 24, 2014 at 2:16 PM

We wrote earlier this month that Brewnuts was in the running for a huge small business competition. 

Today, the organizers announced that Brewnuts joins five other finalists in a trip to New York City next month. The local company received the most votes from the public in a wild-card video bid. Cleveland is in!

Originally published Nov. 13.

Entrepreneur and Sam Adams teamed up to organize "Brewing the American Dream," a nationwide contest that will grant one winner a $10,000 small business grant and mentoring from top execs in the food industry. Cleveland's own Brewnuts is in the running for a wild card spot to travel to New York City and compete against other winners from Boston, Chicago, Denver and New York in December. 

Check out their video below.

From now through Nov. 19, fans of brew-related awesomeness can vote for Brewnuts to advance to the next stage in this game-changing contest. Cast your vote at

From owners Shelley Fasulko and John Pippin: "Tell everyone to vote for Brewnuts and put Cleveland in the national spotlight pitching what's so amazing about the small businesses like Brewnuts that we're brewing up here in the 2-1-6!"

"[Cleveland] breweries serve as the foundation for our recipes — a base ingredient in every donut that we make. We also use them in our glazes to give it that little extra special something that make it unlike any other donut you've had," Fasulko says.
