Hi I'm Carl Ankers and I set up West Coast Brewery back in 2020 at our base in Bispham near Blackpool. Since then we've opened our brewery Covid hit and financially crippled us.
But now the future of our little local brewery is at risk of grinding to a halt. We've lost about 95% of our business because Covid-19 has forced all pubs to close - and that means we are really struggling to pay our fixed costs including rent and salaries. We're a small independent microbrewery.
We bottle, cap and label our own bottle conditioned ales by hand, with artwork designed by yours truly! All bottled, labelled, packed and delivered our beers just to keep afloat.
It's been so tough since the Covid-19 pandemic began. We're hanging in there, and we've done our very best to make the most of what cash is coming in, but the truth is we're struggling and we need your help. We need you to get involved right now and we want to sell directly to you - our friends, customers and supporters. So that's why we've launched this crowdfunder, to ask you to help give us the cash flow that will keep us afloat!
HOW CAN YOU HELP?
We've put together a few offers and rewards for you.
You'll get 10% off on the web shop.
Get 6 Personalised bottles beers.
Get involved with planning a new Fylde Coast Ale Trail.
Our offers start from as little as £10 (or you can just donate if you want to support us), and you are in effect ‘paying ahead’ for a future benefit which will improve our cash flow and enable us to continue to run the company.
Your kind investment will help us cover our running costs and help 'Save West Coast Brewery UK'. We can't wait till Covid-19 restrictions have eased, and for what will no doubt be an epic Summer.
Thank you in advance,
Founder, West Coast Brewery
