A brewery with a difference is coming to Walthamstow, and this is your chance to be part of it while doubling your money!
In December Exale will open an E17 brewery taproom with the award-winning Victory London Distillery, putting an emphasis on local ingredients, sustainability and exciting modern beer. We’re already in construction, but you can help us put the finishing touches on it and for every £1 you put into our crowdfund, you'll get £2 to spend in the taproom via a loyalty card.
As the former brewers at Hale Brewing, we have made our name in experimental and sessional beer – from our house pale, to our Iron Brew Sour, to our watermelon radler. We’re expanding into a new 20hl brewhouse, taproom and distillery in Uplands Business Park in Walthamstow, where we will continue that tradition with more exciting brews and a focus on seasonal recipes, foraged ingredients and sustainability. We’ll be working with local roasters for our coffee ESB, using wild yeasts from our surroundings for our sour beers and of course brewing a variety of exciting IPAs. On top of that we already have collabs with Left Handed Giant and Almasty in the works.
As well as serving fresh beer and spirits from Victory’s on still distillery, we want to minimise our impact on the environment. That will start in the brewhouse but extend to our taproom, where we’ll offer a unique experience that goes well beyond the standard trestle tables and pallets. The walls will come alive with plants grown on our aquaponics system fed with waste water from brewing and distilling, which in turn will grow produce for local food banks, brewery snacks and botanicals for Victory. Our spent grain will be used for bio fuel and our waste beer turned into beer soap and shampoo bars to help our locals cut down on plastic.
We need your help to fund all these exciting plans and make sure our new site is buzzing when it opens. With that in mind, we're offering investors the chance to double their money when they donate – which means for every £1 you put into our crowdfund, you'll get £2 to spend in the taproom via a loyalty card. You can put as much as you like in, so whether you're looking to get a few rounds in or a massive bar tab for an event or Christmas party it's a great deal.
ABOUT EXALE BREWING
Dan & Mark started brewing together in a shipping container outside a warehouse club in Tottenham. We like to brew experimental one-offs but equally love to make sessionable, moreish beer using the best hops but also foraged and unusual ingredients. We've outgrown our makeshift home and our new 20hl brewery will give us more consistency, quality and control, as well as allowing us to can our beer for the first time.
