Update 8th July

Happy Friday lovely backers (apologies to those of you that work weekends!)

We felt it was about time we gave you a bit of an update on progress towards Exmouth’s own brewery!

With regards to the brewery building itself, the floor has been sorted out with drainage and we’re in the process of getting the electrics in; the doors have been reinforced and general fixing and mending is going on to the premises. The brewery hardware itself is still in the process of being manufactured, we’re expecting delivery in late August to mid September.

In the meantime, we’ve been busy organising your lovely rewards!

The ‘bar blades’ for our £25 backers have arrived, and we will be distributing these very shortly by post. However, if you cannot wait and want to come in and pick yours up from the Grapevine, please feel free to do so during the pub's normal opening hours.

For those of you who backed us for bottled beer (at various levels of rewards) we have brewed it and will tomorrow be racking the ‘backers beer’ into two 1000 litre containers which will then be sent off to be bottled – 3,500 exclusive bottles of a beer never to be repeated! Further details to be revealed soon… but we are still aiming for an early to mid August date for getting this bottled beer to you along with the 10% Crossed Anchors @ Grapevine discount cards!

 Here’s a sneak peek at the beer being brewed a couple of weeks ago in a 'secret' location!

All those backers of £50 and upwards, free entry into the fantastic Grapevine annual beer festival was a part of your reward package and this is happening on August Bank Holiday weekend. A list of backers will be on the door, just give your name for free entry - please see http://www.thegrapevineexmouth.com/new-page/ for more information, and we hope to see you there!

If you have any feedback or questions, please let us know.

Cheers!
