Here at Brew York the last two years have gone by in a flash!
We can’t quite believe we’re two years old already! We live for making weird and wonderful brews (literally it often feels like we do live in the brewery) and we make them for the many beer lovers who are looking for something a little different!
Just a few years ago when we were home brewing in our sheds and dreaming about opening a brewery, we never would have guessed there would be so much love out there for what we’re doing with Brew York!
We want to let our beer lovers know we love them back!
Now that the time is right for us to expand, we want the people who have supported us along the way to benefit from us growing. When the chance to extend into the building next door came up, we were excited and thought it was something you guys would be just as excited about!
We’ve always said we were very lucky to get space for our brewery within York’s city walls! And so, when the building next door to us became free we thought that some beer angels really were looking down on us! It's opened up a whole new world of possibilities for what Brew York could become!
We always thought that expansion would mean having to find another location and reluctantly move away from drinking the beer where it's brewed! But with this turn of events, it means we can create a super brewery in one place! It’s still about the beer and it always will be, but it’s now also about things that make drinking the beer even better!
Reaching our £40k target will help us open a Street Food Kitchen
We plan to serve up food that’s just as weird and wonderful as our brews! And we’d pair our beers to different dishes to create some taste sensations. We're even planning to have the biggest selection of keg beers in York! Here's our vision for what the Street Food Kitchen will look like...
Overfunding would mean we can do so much more!
Our plans don't stop at the Street Food Kitchen and overfunding would give us the opportunity to be more accessible and make even more experimental brews, as well as get more of our beers in cans!
As long as we have beer lovers who want to be rewarded and get more from Brew York then we have plans to offer more! Here's what we're thinking...
- Being inclusive has always been important to us and our taproom has been accessible since we opened! We've got plans to install a passenger lift to make our Street Food Kitchen accessible so that anyone and everyone who loves great brews receives a warm welcome at Brew York!
- We've set our sights on installing an advanced 'pilot' kit. It's essentially a small-scale brewing set up, which would give us all we need to offer brewing lessons and create more experimental brews.
- We'd love to open a Hoptail Lounge (that's beer + cocktails = hoptails) where our brews will be combined with a whole host of other ingredients to create some rather special tipples such as the Tonkoko White Russian!
- And we want to increase the range of beers we make by tripling production, as well as get more of our seasonal and one-off beers in cans! There are a lot of thirsty beer lovers out there!
We think of what we’re doing as the Brew York (R)evolution!
It's part evolution from our days as home brewers and part revolution of the York beer and street food scene! And we want brew lovers to be part of our beer loving community! We love that our beer drinkers range from 18 to 80 years old and also that you guys bring your little people and furry friends into the taproom too! And they're going to be just as welcome in the Street Food Kitchen.
For us, it's all about being as inclusive as we can be and of course it's always about the beer! And so, please join us in our mission to say NO to bland, boring beer and a big YES to weird and wonderful brews, which brighten up what at times can be a dull world!
We've got big plans, but the thing we want to do most is really reward our beer lovers for joining the Brew York (R)evolution!
Put simply, you can double your money in beer vouchers to use in our taproom and get involved with behind-the-scenes beer lover experiences - there's everything from joining us on a brew day or designing a beer, to beer tasting and hoptail making, as well as learning to cook street food or having our mobile bar come to party with you!
And what's more everyone who joins the Brew York (R)evolution and supports us through buying a reward package will be invited to the private launch party to celebrate our expansion plans becoming a reality!
We hope you love the rewards we've brewed up and that you might even think about teaming up with a group of your mates to do one of our beer lover experiences!
We know there's a bit of scrolling down to see all of the rewards, so we've pulled them together in a handy little menu below!
We've even thrown in some added extras with discounts and merch so that you're really rewarded for joining our beer lover community - details of these are in the individual reward boxes on the right!
And of course, we want to say a very big THANK YOU for all the support you've given us so far and for being interested in the Brew York (R)evolution!
As always a big cheers from us,
Wayne and Lee
Our Brew York (R)evolution reward packages!
