Wild Beer Co plan

An artist’s impression of how the new brewery and visitor centre will look


With 17 days left to run, Wild Beer Co has smashed through its £1 million crowdfunding target — however, the campaign will continue into an overfunding period.

Co-founders Andrew Cooper and Brett Ellis said: “We have had hundreds of requests for our business plan and financials, it’s apparent from ongoing investor discussions, that there are still a lot of people that would like to invest.

“Every pound we raise is going to grow our business, and the capital raised, during this finite overfunding period, will allow us to expedite our plans, and move us closer to our goal.

“We cannot wait to make rapid progress towards building the new brewery. With all of your continued support and investment, we will achieve this objective in no time.”

At the time of writing the amount raised was just under £1.2m, from 1,181 investors.
