Siren Craft Brew, one of Ratebeer’s Top 100 Breweries in the World, has launched their first crowdfunding campaign through Crowdcube.com.
The brewery, which picked up CAMRA’s Supreme Champion Beer of Britain award this year, is raising a minimum of £750,000 which will go towards a new canning line, increased capacity and lab & efficiency improvements. The brewery has also said if it reaches £1.5m in overfunding it will fastrack plans to open two city centre bars.
People will be investing for equity in the business, along with some ‘rewards’ including discounts, exclusive events, brewery tours and more.
Darron Anley, founder, said: “Following on from the momentum of an award-winning year and some hard work behind the scenes, we’re in a great position to start our next phase of expansion. Craft beer in cans is a huge opportunity and to get the best possible equipment, we needed to bring in some external investment.”
He added: “Crowdfunding is something we’ve been asked about a lot over the years. All being well, this round of funding will allow us to keep growing sustainably, while concentrating on what we do best – the beer.”
