Update 9th August


Dear Backers,

We’re happy to say your rewards are coming in – yippee!

Our wonderful £25 Backers have now been sent their lovely exclusive bar blades, so these should be arriving soon (although Royal Mail do seem to have been struggling to tell the difference between a ‘to’ and ‘from’ label!). Please let us know if you haven't had these by next week.

The backers beer, called ‘345 Backers’ has been bottled and has landed in the brewery! We’re sorting out logistics for delivery of gift packs and cases within the agreed local radius, but if you cannot wait, feel free to pop down to the Grapevine during opening hours and pick your beer up and say hello!

Pledges of £50 upwards included a free entry to the Grapevine beer festival 2016 on August Bank Holiday (Sat 27th & Sun 28th), so if you are coming, turn up and give your name and they'll tick you off the list. These pledges of £50 and above also have a 12 month 10% discount card for Crossed Anchors beers bought at the Grapevine, and these will be ready to distribute from Friday.

I've attached a couple pictures of the brewery works. We're expecting delivery of the brewery in early September and we're hoping to be up and brewing by the end of the month or early October. Any pledges that included firkins, pins, brewery tours or brewing with us will follow after that.

Oh, and we'll let you know about a grand opening party - Whew!

We're proceeding as planned, but thanks for being patient with us. Enjoy the beer blades and/or the beer, and if you have any questions, queries etc. let us know.

Cheers
Paddy & Ollie

p.s. Some folks have let us know about changes of address since pledging, if there are any more, please tell us!
