Loch Lomond Brewery has made an impressive start to a crowdfunding campaign to double production, bring packaging in house and open a combined brewery / taproom on the shores of the loch.
The company is seeking £350,000 in return for 10.36% of equity and has already raised more than £124,000 with 26 days of the campaign remaining.
In their pitch, award-winning owners, Fiona and Euan MacEachern, say: “We are stocked by retailers M&S, Co-Op, Morrisons, Aldi and Lidl. We have on-boarded Brakes as a wholesales partner and we’re successfully exporting 20% of production to Europe, Asia and the Nordics. We expect to be exporting to North America in the future.
“Due to the increasing popularity of our beers, we are near production capacity. We also currently outsource our packaging, adding extra mileage to our beers before they reach our customers. Your investment will enable us to purchase state-of-the-art production equipment to double production and bring our packaging operation in house, enabling us to meet demand.
“We are in the planning stage with developers to open our very first combined brewery / tap room on the shores of Loch Lomond, aiming to open by 2020. The footprint of the building will be 1200 square metres, with a third of that space dedicated to a restaurant, visitor centre and store. We want this to become a key attraction to the loch’s four million annual visitors.”
