In late 2018 us four mates (Wes, Dan, Elliott and Adam) took over the Lyme Regis Brewery and saved the business from collapse.
Over the past 16 months we have worked tirelessly in our spare time to save the business, helping to create 4 full time permanent jobs and creating a viable little brewing business in our little corner of the world.
We've had a blast meeting folks from across the globe and over the winter of 2019/20 we have invested further in our business to create a tap room like no other.
We've invested almost £50,000 into a new pilot brew house and the taproom refit. Since reopening in February we have had a massively positive response to the Battery Room, with sales up by over 100% on 2019.
We were just kicking off the development of our new range of beers when the COVID-19 pandemic closed all bars across the UK.
This is a really worrying time for everyone, especially those now out of work and with sick relatives and friends. Our 4 staff have been guaranteed future employment after this crisis. We're sticking by our people.
In our period of lockdown, we wanted to ask for your support in Pledging a Pint to enjoy when we reopen. We are hoping to forward fund £5,000 to assist with fixed overheads and cashflow during this time to ensure we can pay our suppliers and bills.
We're creating some sweet new limited edition merch for anyone who helps us in our funding, and are launching the CREW. An exclusive group of 100 members that will receive a lifelong discount, exclusive t-shirt and ongoing annual benefits such as an invite to launches and parties.
We want to thank everyone for their support. Keep the faith, look out for each other and see you after this all blows over for a pint!
