Seeking to expand its already successful business, Crowdcube success Camden Town Brewery announced this week that it has appointed Ian Jones as Director of Brewing and hiring two new sales reps.
The brewing company shared:
“Overseeing all this will be our new Director of Brewing, Ian Jones, who joins us this week. He’s not the only new face though. Two new sales reps started with us this week too and throughout the year we’ll be expanding in Sales, Marketing and Brewing as well as staffing up ready for the new site in Enfield.
“A bigger Camden family means we need a bigger bar for our after work beers – the plans are in place to give our Brewery Bar a little refresh this spring too. Yep, our beloved in-house tap room is due for a much needed update, which will mean bigger fridges for take-away beer, more space to sit, more toilets (!!!) and a few licks of paint.”
Camden Town Brewery also revealed plans for the new year:
“More beers in cans, a new website with an online store, our Bring Me Beer service to deliver fresh beer straight to you, bigger parties, more illustrator collaborations and lastly and most importantly…Our new Brewery. Throughout the year this will be our biggest project – and is our biggest project yet. Work has now started and we should be brewing at our new site by early 2017.
“We couldn’t have done it without you guys and we can only get the new brewery up and running with your continued help and support. Keep drinking Camden and telling us how we can make our beer better.”
Camden Town Brewery ran a successful crowdfunding round on Crowdcube raising £2.8 million from over 2200 investors recently. The initial pitch was to raise £1.5 million for a 3% equity stake.Last month, the company announced it has been acquired by mega brewer AB InBev. This made the small business the equity crowdfunding platform’s second exit.
