Founder Darron Anley with the Siren Craft Brew team
The brewery, which picked up CAMRA’s 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 and efficiency improvements. If it reaches £1.5m in overfunding, it will fast-track plans to open two city centre bars.
People will be investing for equity in the business, along with some rewards, including discounts, exclusive events and brewery tours.
Founder, Darron Anley, 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.
“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.”
