Help save Stroud Brewery by raising £100K in forward sales so that we can keep brewing outstanding organic beer without damaging the planet

by Stroud Brewery in Stroud, England, United Kingdom

 New stretch target

An extra £25,000 gives us a bit more comfort to ensure we get to the end of April so that we can open our doors for a sunny May Bank Holiday!

And if we go beyond this we will support our "Field Lab". Together with Charles Faram, our hop merchant and 2 organic farms, and this could be something RC supports with "Food to inspire change"...

We're Stroud Brewery, an organic brewery in the heart of the Cotswolds. Due to the impact of Covid-19, we desperately need to raise £100,000 to help pay ongoing costs, and kick start some new projects to see our beer sold across the nation.

Please donate, pledge on our ridiculously amazing rewards or simply share this campaign far and wide amongst your friends. Together we can get through this and keep brewing delicious organic beer, doing business the right way, for our incredible and growing community.

Change is brewing!


Stroud Brewery has been a part of Stroud for over 200 years, we’ve looked after this important local institution for 15 years, and now employ an equivalent of 25 full time staff. The Brewery is a destination not only for our community but for those from further afield. It models a new way of doing business and is something for us all to be proud of.

Stroud Brewery Crowdfunder

We are a brewery dedicated to brewing organic beer, and a certified B Corps - a business that prioritises People and Planet as much as we do Profit. Take a look at our Impact Report to see some of the good things we do.


Our mission is nothing less than to make outstanding organic beer without damaging the planet and bring people together to drink good beer, share dreams and ideas, and inspire positive change.

ALL THIS IS AT RISK without community funding to support Stroud Brewery through this current relentless trading storm.


Covid-19 has stopped hospitality in its tracks, and restrictions look set to stay for the coming months. The Brewery business is facing the biggest challenge it has ever faced and without support from the community, we may  have to close our doors.

Stroud Brewery Community Crowdfunder

Put simply we are struggling to pay all of our bills for the coming few months whilst the brewery tap and our brilliant pub customers cannot open. 

“I want to say that you have been fantastic over the years at making your enterprise support the local community. I am sure the local community would love a way of supporting you through your difficult times. So please do find a way of asking before it gets too dire at your end” Mark Russell, Stroud resident.

We have a great vision for the next 15 years as a forward thinking green business adapting to our shared social and environmental demands. But we need your help to make this happen.

But we aren’t resting on our laurels - while our bar doors are closed we’re building new trading partnerships, and exploring new ways of working - but they are not happening quickly enough.

So while we focus on our development and new trade - such as utilising our newly installed canning machine to package fresh beer on site to demand, and work with partners such as River Cottage to grow our UK and new export sales, we’re asking you to invest in Stroud Brewery’s future - by purchasing one (or more!) of our incredible Crowdfunding rewards.

Your kind investment will help us cover our running costs and see us through this difficult time.

Become a Survival Supporter, a Brilliant Beer Backer - and we will have a 2021 party to remember, to celebrate our survival. And you can be there to celebrate, as our guests of honour.

We hope that in a few months Covid-19 restrictions will start to ease, and with your generous support, we will begin to thrive again. We can't wait to throw open our  doors and let everyone in.

Stroud Brewery Team - Crowdfunder


There are LOADS of ways you can support us, by treating yourself or someone close to you to our new Crowdfunder rewards and help keep Stroud Brewery going through this tricky time.

Through these “Buy Forward” options, we hope to raise the £100K we need to service our ongoing fixed costs - rent, insurance etc until April 2021.

Every single person who donates will receive tickets to our exclusive Survival Supporters & Brilliant Beer Backers Party*. It’s going to be an incredible event, with some of our FAVOURITE musicians, performers and entertainers, the party to end (or is that start) all parties! 1610568991_bud.jpg*As and when COVID rules allow
