Fullsteam's mission is to change that. To develop and define a distinctly Southern brewing style, experimenting with seasonal farmed goods and heirloom grains in the brewing process.
What will result? We're not quite sure. All we know is this: it's our mission to figure it out. We're developing recipes, sourcing local ingredients, and testing batches. Along the way, we'll pay our respects to traditional brewing, crafting a line of easy-drinking session beers. But what we want to be known for -- in 2008 and decades beyond -- is our willingness to invent what doesn't yet exist. To answer "what if" questions. To grow into a Great Southern Brewery...and have an airshipload of fun in the process.
Welcome to our noble experiment. We'll see you at the tavern before too long.

Walmart Better Living Business Plan Challenge 2009
Walmart is committed to fostering innovation at all levels - in our stores and supply chain, in communities, and throughout the retail industry. In this spirit, the Walmart Better Living Business Plan Challenge provides a forum for students to showcase their best ideas and to help Walmart learn from some of the brightest minds in the world. The competition challenges students to invent sustainable products or develop sustainable business solutions and present them to a panel of Walmart executives, suppliers, and environmental organizations. In addition to gaining an audience with some of the top business and sustainability leaders in the United States, the winning school will receive $20,000 to invest in their business or product.
Walmart developed the Better Living Business Plan Challenge to encourage entrepreneurial expression and growth. The focus of business today must take into account not only the profit potential of a business venture or new product, but also the effect on the environment and on people. The Challenge provides students with a venue to develop confidence in presenting their ideas to world business leaders, to receive feedback and constructive coaching to be successful in selling their ideas, and to make seed money available to help young entrepreneurs make their ideas a reality.
If you have a great idea for a sustainable product, business or service, we invite you to participate in the 2009 Walmart Better Living Business Plan Challenge.
