Founder of the UK’s best three beer festivals, We Are Beer are fundraising to launch Bigfoot – a national festival where music meets craft beer and world-class food, as well as to accelerate growth of their current events, which attracted over 16k visitors and turned over more than £780k in 2018
We Are Beer are the founders of the London, Bristol and Edinburgh Craft Beer Festivals. By championing innovative, independent breweries and bringing them together with incredible food and music, we have revolutionised the beer event market and grown more than 50% year-on-year since 2016.
We began in London in 2013 but we now have four festivals with 100s of breweries, and in 2018 had over 20 sponsors,16,000 visitors and a gross turnover of £781k (EBITDA £102k). We have been featured in The Guardian, The FT Weekend, The Telegraph,BBC News, and countless local titles.
We're now looking to accelerate the growth of our audience and our brand. To achieve that we are launching Bigfoot - the first national camping festival to show equal love for amazing live music, artisan beer and world-class food. We think it's the festival beer lovers and foodies have been waiting for.
We are raising £300,000 to get this festival off the ground, book the headline music acts and secure our gorgeous, escapist location for 2020. Once in overfunding we’ll be able to expand our growth plans for our current events as well as the new Beer Central festival in Birmingham, which will tap into the burgeoning but under-represented Midlands beer scene when it opens in July 2019.
