Stony Beer Bear is a craft beer bottle shop and micro pub, opening in North West Milton Keynes in April 2017. We currently anticipate to stock bottles from about 20 local and further 40 national breweries with a heavy emphasis on beers from London and Bristol. The shop will also have five taps and 20 seats, so you can drink in and take away. 

As waves of brilliant craft beer places are sweeping the nation, we feel that despite the excellent quality of the beer, many bars forget the community  aspect of the best of pubs. We want to build a place which you can visit on your own, with family or friends but where you will always find community and a friendly environment.

While we have the basic funds to open the shop, we would like to make the best use of our beautiful Victorian building and restore as much of it as possible to its original splendour. After 50 years of being first a butcher and then a pet shop, you can imagine that we have got quite a task on our hands! We have to run a new water supply into the shop and will also have to rework some of the electrics. Unfortunately these restorations and moderations cost more than we had anticipated and we are looking for your help to make the dream become a reality. 

Stony Beer Bear will be a communal, friendly pub and for our investors there are plenty of rewards on offer! Do you fancy your own Beer Bear glass or bottle opener? Maybe a shared or private tasting? Or top prize even features your own beer- and lots of your friends at your own private party in the shop. Please also let all your friends know and pass the page on!

Please note that all rewards must be picked up from the shop. That way we can make the most of your investment, rather than investing it in postage. 

If you have any questions about Beer Bear or our campaign, don't hesitate to get in touch via twitter (@stonybeerbear) or email (  We can't wait to share the shop with you!
