New stretch target

The support we have had so far has really blown our minds! We are so happy that others share our love of our little brewery! 

Our initial target helped us get back much of the money we lost when our supplier went into liquidation. Now we hope to be able to continue our efforts meaning we can recover the rest of the money we lost, and also help us redevelop our website into an e-commerce site that will help us sell our new canned craft beer range to beer lovers across the country. 

Thanks for everyone’s support so far. It really means so much to us.


About the West End Brewery

The West End Brewery is a small brewery based in the heart of Leicester’s West End. For the past five years, our regulars have been enjoying our brewed-on-the-premises craft beers in our welcoming taproom seven days a week, even on Christmas Day!

Our ambition to launch our craft beer in cans

During lockdown, when drinking at home became the ‘new normal’, we decided that our next step should be creating our own collection of canned beers, so that anyone, no matter where they live, could enjoy a taste of the West End Brewery. 

Of course, we’re back open now and it’s great to have people in our taproom, and the other pubs we supply locally, but we also know you want to enjoy your favourite beer at home too.

So, we rolled up our beer-brewing sleeves and sprang into action. We started working with a local design studio to create the can designs, and paid a substantial amount of money to a canning machine supplier. 

Just as we were getting excited about its delivery, we heard the devastating news that they’d gone bust, taking all our hard-earned money with them. Without our canning machine, we cannot can our beer, so our exciting plans have gone down the drain, but thankfully not our beer!

Why we're crowdfunding

We're hoping that the powers of crowdfunding can help us get our plans to can back on track!

Luckily, we've found a new canning machine supplier, and that’s where you can help us. We are hoping to raise enough money to get our cans of beautifully crafted beer rolling off the (admittedly, small) production line in time for the autumn. 

To do this, we need to raise £8,000 to cover the money we lost when the supplier went bust, and if we are lucky enough to achieve that, we’ll be able to develop our online store so that customers all over the UK will be able to order quickly and easily using the rest of the funding.
