Help out a grassroot brewery - We’ve put together some great rewards to raise funds for a canning machine.

by Tapstone Brew Co in Chard, England, United Kingdom

We've been canning by hand for a year with our in-house set-up... now we've tested the waters, we want to dive in!

With your help we'll purchase an automated canning machine. It's made right here in the UK by MicroCan.

With this machine we'll launch an online shop & start supplying nationally.

We’ve been brewing hoppy hazy Vermont style ale since 2015 on a brewery built from the ground-up with our own hands.

The beers we make are saturated with hops & brimming with flavour.

We don't use any chemicals or finings; just barley, water, hops & yeast, & our brewery is run with 100% renewable energy.

All our beers are uplifting tonics for the soul.

We’ve been growing organically but Covid has hit our industry hard. 

Because of the lockdowns there’s no way we can save for a canning machine - so we’re asking for your help.

We’ve put together some great rewards for your support.

These pre-sales will allow us to keep our independence. By staying independent we can make the right decisions for our business & customers, like remaining sustainable & ethical, & never compromising on the quality of the beers.

We also breed our own hops.

This year will be our first full-scale harvest. 

The hops we've bred are packed full of juicy fruit-forward flavours - nothing like traditional UK hops. We’ve used fresh genetics from around the world including wild Somerset hops.

Our dream is to brew a permanent Pale & a permanent IPA from our homegrown hops - totally unique beers with a low environmental footprint.

Everyone who pledges will be at the front of the queue & offered the first cans from this year's harvest.

We're a 2 man team with a real passion for our craft.

With a canning machine we’ll be able to future-proof our business & let more people taste what we’re about.

Your support would mean the absolute world to us. It'll lift our grassroots brewery up to the next level.

Big love & Big thanks :)
