The Belgian Brewer originated in August 2014 when Nik Lemmens took on his family recipes and began creating wonderful Belgian Style beers in his home town of Bishop’s Stortford, Hertfordshire. Since February 2019 there has been a functioning tap room and brewery based in a quiet industrial estate with easy access routes.
With Nik’s hard work and family recipes, he has brewed over 110,000 pints of beer and with your help we are hoping to safely expand the tap room and to also create a welcoming, local and space for the community!
Prior to Covid we were able to host 30 people inside the brewery. With social distancing this is not possible. Although we can fit 20 people safely on our terrace, this is not feasible for colder days or winter time.
With Social Distancing being a permanent feature in our daily lives space has become essential to keep customers safe. Whilst we have a large terrace, our indoor space is so limited that it is not feasible to host anyone inside the brewery. In order to combat this we are creating extra floor space.
Currently every spare minute and any free cash is being pumped directly back into bettering the brewery and creating a space which we can offer out to the community. We are doing this by building the mezzanine to provide a platform for musicians, comedians and artists which our customers can experience.
So what exactly do we need the money for?
Whilst the basic infrastructure is built. We need to get Glass Separation Screens, Heating, Electrics, Furnishings, Lighting, Decorations and Exhibit spaces created.
We have some great rewards for you to choose from and we hope you can help us to become a fantastic community space and vibrant tap room.
Thank you for taking the time to read and for your generous pledges.
