Idea

Bedlam relaunched in 2015 with a simple business model - brew awesome beer, tell people about it, deliver it to them. Results over the last 12 months suggest we're doing something right: four Gold medals at the 2018 SIBA Beer Awards, significant social media engagement (over 7,000 followers) and sales of over 500,000 pints - the future is bright!

With expansion potential at our new brewery site, we're ready to take up the challenge of becoming the number one craft brewery in Sussex (with a population of over 1.6 million thirsty inhabitants), as well as a major player in Greater London, Surrey and Kent.

Highlights to date:

- Portfolio of brands covering traditional cask and modern craft

- All beer brewed in-house ensuring high-quality product and margins

- 58% annual revenue growth in the last period (y/e Mar 2019)

- 150% overfunded Crowdcube raise in late 2016 facilitated relocation of the brewery

- Sales of over £526k for the year to 31 March 2019 (- £204k P+L)

- Over 400 individual accounts currently (including Greene King and Ei Group).

Use of funds:

- Significantly increase site capacity

- New sales resources and marketing investment to drive the brand and increase distribution in the On / Off Trade and Export markets

- Pilot kit to enable the production of small batch and experimental brews

- A Brewery Tap in the heart of Brighton & Hove.
