Fans of "The Bachelorette" call themselves Bachelor Nation and they love to support past contestants from the show. On Friday, Examiner got the chance to talk on the phone to Richard Mathy from season four about what he is up to now. Richard recently started a Kickstarter Campaign trying to get his Fulton Chain Craft Brewery going.

This brewery is something that he is starting with his high school friend Justin Staskiewicz. They have big plans for it to open up in Old Forge, New York and quickly become a place everyone wants to visit. It will be a brewery, but will also have a tasting room for guests.

Richard explained a bit more about how they can have a tasting room. They are using as many ingredients from New York State as possible to make it happen. Here is what the Kickstarter page says:

"Help us bring our dream to life of owning a brewery in the Old Forge region of the Adirondacks. With your support we can brew NYS beer made with NYS ingredients that everyone will love. Our beer selection will vary to suit everyones taste buds with style from IPA & Scotch ales to summer wheat beers & winter porters. Once open our brewery will bring you the Adirondack feel and satisfied taste buds. The funding that you donate will be used to purchase new brewing equipment that will allow us to brew on an appropriate scale to meet demand. We appreciate your support and can't wait for your visit to our tasting room."

If you back them on Kickstarter, you can even get great items from the Fulton Chain Craft Brewery. They will be giving backers koozies, logo stickers, t-shirts and more. Make sure you check out Richard Mathy's Kickstarter campaign.
