Crowdfunding

While most companies use a Crowdfunding website or platform to to track their project, we are opting for the DIY method (mainly so we can ensure all the money goes directly into improving the brewery). We know it may seem a little “different” but we also believe it is the best option.

The basic premise is this: You invest your chosen amount before the end of 2017. We use all the invested money to expand the brewery in 2018. You will be invited for a tour / possible launch party. In 2019 (and for the next 4 years until 2023) you will be entitled to goods in return equalling 20% plus 10% of your investment. For example, £100 investment means you would receive £30 worth of goods each year for 5 years (a total of £150). All goods must be claimed during the calendar year they are due (i.e you can’t accrue them or roll them over). Goods include: bottles, casks, mini casks, polypins of beer and also t-shirts, key-ring bottle openers and any other available merchandise. Prices are expected to vary from year to year.

Examples

Investment amount Return in goods each year Total value of returned goods (over 5 years)
£100 £20 + £10 Extra £150
£250 £50 + £25 Extra £375
£1,000 £200 + £100 Extra £1,500
£10,000 £2000 + £1000 Extra £15,000

We must also point out that this is an investment and, as such, in the unlikely situation that the brewery folds, you would lose your investment.
