Started a nano brewery (160 ltr) in 2014. Successfully crowdfunded in 2018 & moved to a bigger site in Kingston. Quadrupled the size of the brew-kit & now distribute nationally. Producing high quality, award winning beer. Expanding again, focusing on people, marketing & more tanks!
From small beginnings we have grown our business from scratch and created a loyal following along the way. Since our previous campaign in which we raised over £300k, we have managed to increase our sales from 100 pubs to 200. Now our beer is being distributed around the UK via eight wholesalers. The business model until this year had been for on-trade, selling to pubs, bars, restaurants and hotels including - The Hilton, Honest Burgers, Fullers and many more.
This year, due to the pandemic, the business model had to change dramatically. Our distribution channels dried up overnight. We managed to purchase a second-hand canning line, set up an e-commerce site and sell direct to customers through home deliveries within a week of lockdown. Since then we have completed around 2,000 home deliveries and gained over 1,700 new customers in 2020. And these numbers keep growing.
Although we had a significant increase in capacity and output we still feel that we are a bit of an undiscovered gem in the brewing world. This investment will help us develop our marketing strategy, increase direct sales, enhance our range, create more employment as well as purchase much needed additional tank space to meet demand.
