Stoker’s Brewing LLC re- ceived a $50,000 loan through the NEPA Alliance Tri-District loan fund, which includes funds from the Economic De- velopment Administration (EDA) as part of a total project costing $140,000. The total project included the purchase of land, building and equip- ment. NEPA’s loan helped the company purchase new equipment necessary to begin their operations. Other project funds consisted of $50,000 from Mauch Chunk Trust Company and a $40,000 equi- ty injection from the borrower.

The company fills a niche in the Schuylkill County beer market by producing their own beer on- site in small batches using only the highest quality ingredients and abiding by world class brew- ing standards. NEPA’s loan helped Stoker’s purchase new microbrewery equipment that allows the busi- ness to keep up with the demand from customers.
