by Love Lane Brewery in Liverpool, England, United Kingdom

Our journey so far…

The Love Lane story – like all great ones – has been an adventure full of ups and downs, good times and bad. But the one constant is the love of great beer and a passion to help people enjoy it over a conversation with friends and family.

From humble home brewing beginnings in 2010 to a railway arch on Love Lane, Liverpool. The beer flew out and we couldn’t keep up with demand on our kit, we knew we needed a new home.

We found it at 62-64 Bridgewater Street in the heart of Liverpool's Baltic Triangle – a place that immediately felt like it could become our home. The lease was signed and the next chapter began as we converted an old rubber warehouse into our vision for Love Lane, a new brewery, boutique distillery and a bar that could accommodate large events.

Sounds like we've got it made, right?

Not exactly – the pandemic has been a torrid time for everyone, that includes us and whilst we‘ve survived, we face a new challenge as we anticipate what freedom emerging from lockdown will bring.

As the world has opened up, we have been inundated with enquiries for events with from 40 up to 180 people – great news, right? Unfortunately not. When we take such a booking, the whole venue has to close to host a private function and we have to shut our doors to our locals. We need a way to offer our amazing home to both groups at the same time.

1628091992_screenshot_2021-08-04_at_16.45.48.png

So this brings us to you and our ask for help.

We want to raise £80,000 to fund the conversion of the top floor into event space with two multi-use rooms, converting the existing office and tasting room so we can take bookings for events while staying open downstairs for our community.

Your money will allow us to become a destination for events, while we continue to develop as the local bar for the growing Baltic Triangle community and visitors wanting a Liverpool taproom experience.

What will the money pay for?

  • Renovation of our existing office space to create a multi-event floor with two meeting rooms/ event spaces
  • Installation of an additional kitchen, new bar and a portable event bar
  • Audio visual equipment (for gigs, rehearsals, arts, films, weddings and corporate meetings)
  • Event furniture and seating 
  • Air conditioning, additional lighting and a new storage space for the extra seating and tables and a small office.

1628092015_screenshot_2021-08-04_at_16.45.48.png

But this is not just about us and making money.

As a local business we are committed to investing in people and our community. The new development upstairs will give us the much needed space for more events, meaning more jobs, allow us to grow our team.

Our brewery’s home is in the heart of Liverpool’s vibrant Baltic Triangle, a place full of doers, creators and makers – we want to take our building to its natural next step and do that in partnership with our local community.

We know the new rooms will be bustling with events in the evenings and weekends, but through the week we want to be able to accommodate local groups. They could be the best band you've never heard of (yet) looking to jam or a yoga group who needs a new home after a tough year of restrictions. We want to share our new space and we know they'd love it as much as we do.

We are committing our space to be available for:

  • Complementary weekday use for local groups and charities for meetings
  • Subsidised event use for 4-weekday evenings a month
  • Opportunities for local groups to have a space to write their next chapter

Ultimately, we want to ensure that whatever you use the Love Lane Brewery building for, it’s available for you at all times. Whether that's to have your first date, catch up with old friends over a beer, treat your mum to Sunday lunch or take a tour to learn more about our beer and gin.

We want to be here if you want to get married, or just connect with likeminded people. The bottom line is we believe Love Lane Brewery can be the perfect place for all these things with your help.

On the right of this page we’ve curated a collection of rewards to suit every budget and we’re sure you’ll find something you’ll love. Every pound will help us take our home to the next level. Literally.

These rewards will help us write the next chapter of the love story. But more importantly they will ensure Love Lane Brewery is a key destination in the heart of Baltic Triangle for locals, staycationers and international tourists whether for a pint or an event.

Please have a look through and click on any to find out more.

You can be part of the story and share the love.
