BeerBods have one simple aim; to get more people drinking better beer. Since raising in 2014 subscriber numbers are up almost four-fold, revenue five-fold, and the team six-fold. Now they’re seeking further investment and aiming to become the leading independent online retailer of beer in the UK.
Launched in Matt's spare time in 2012, we believe BeerBods was the UK's first beer subscription service. We have one simple aim... to get more people drinking better beer.
After being named as “one of the one hundred most innovative small businesses in the UK” by Smarta and O2 in 2014, we raised some seed investment and broke crowdfunding records in the process, raising £150,000 in 36 hours on Crowdcube. Nearly all of the money came from our amazing customers. Since then we’ve grown our subscriber numbers almost four-fold, our revenue five-fold, and our team six-fold.
In the last two years, we’ve launched a range of new products on top of our subscription service, including an online shop (where we mainly sell themed mixed cases to existing subscribers), BeerBods for Business and BeerBods LIVE.
Today we have almost 4,000 active subscribers and another 14,000 members who buy mixed cases or gifts from us on a less frequent basis. Since launching we’ve sold over £1.4million of beer (Gross Merchandising Value). Our business has drawn praise from The Guardian, BBC and The Financial Times, amongst many others.
We think we’ve laid the foundations to become one of the leading independent online retailer of bottled beer in the UK. Now we want to grow our impact by bringing a tech team in-house, develop ideas for new products and invest in an ambitious marketing strategy.
