Introduction to the team
We are Husk Brewery - a community focused brewery and taproom in the Royal Docks, East London that has been around since 2015. We are a small team but love what we do and are growing from strength to strength. We supply a number of pubs and venues in the local area and have regular lines at the Angel of Bow (Bow) and The Oiler Bar (Royal Victoria) to name just a couple. Our taproom is open to the public on Friday and Saturday nights from 5-11pm and we have regular events on such as our famous gig nights, comedy evenings and more!
The weekly taproom space is in the same area as where we brew so, as you can imagine, this currently disrupts our brewing schedule and requires a lot of planning and manual effort!
Our vision is to have a permanent place for our bar and kitchen in the brewery, be open for longer during the week and minimise disruption to our brewing schedule. We are also working with an experienced chef to help introduce a simple but delicious gourmet burger menu that will be available in the taproom or for at-home delivery through Deliveroo and Uber Eats - alongside our delicious fresh beer!
How we plan to use the money
The money will be used for the following:
- Tools and installation costs for the new kitchen
- New tables, chairs and bar space
- Licensing, all the necessary certificates and fire safety equipment
- Initial costs of new staff & training
Once you've found us the first time, you'll realise that we're really easily accessible - only a 4 minute walk from West Silvertown DLR and 8-10 mins from Royal Victoria DLR. With the Royal Wharf development popping up, and huge regeneration plans for the Royal Docks area, there hasn't been a more exciting time to be in the area - and we are looking forward to this journey!
Our ambition is to then hit our stretch target which will enable us to purchase a two more fermenters for the Brewery to keep up with demand. With this, we would be be able to brew and ship out more beer and allow us to make a wider selection of beers to serve up to you lovely people!
Thanks so much for your support!
