When we started the business back in 2019 things were looking good: great products, a growing customer base and increase of wholesale demand...but soon the dark cloud of 2020 approached and we all know what happened after that.
The first ray of light came back in April 2021, when we won a clutch of awards at the London Beer Competition. This has put us firmly back on the map and our growth has returned. Unfortunately, cardboard prices have shot up and glass is more expensive and hard to come by.
We have invested in an industrial bottle washer but more needs to be done to combat glass wastage (we have to reject about 32% of returned bottles).
Would it not be great if we had easy-to-clean bottles and Stainless Steel mini kegs so you can enjoy our great beers at home and help save the environment at the same time?
This crowdfunder will not only help our brewery expand (in more ways than one) but also ensures that we are doing our bit to become a more eco-friendly business.
With the extra unit space we will also be able to start barrel ageing. If you are into aged or sour beers, this is your chance to help us make this a reality.
What will the funds be used for?
Building the growler infrastructure, purchase filler and procure all reusable vessels is not easy, your support will help us to become more green and additionally create more space by taking on a new unit.
We. will update this page regularly.
