We have all heard the folklore of a man attaching helium balloons to a lawn chair and floating into the sunset. This is the attitude that the founders of Aeronaut Brewing Company had in order to start their adventure of owning a brewery. As a tribute to those that don't just dream but DO, we launched a mini lawn chair over the city of Somerville.
We asked the engineers / owners of Aeronaut: How many balloons does it take to float a lawn chair? The calculated and we planned the event. On opening day we would launch the chair above the brewery. Throughout the day visitors filled roughly 350 helium balloons and tied to a mini lawn chair. As the sun was setting the crowd gathered and counted down to lift off and more importantly, the beginning of the Aeronaut Brewing Companies adventures.
