Founded in 1995, West Berkshire Brewery has produced a wide range of bottled, kegged and cask-conditioned beers and lagers that have won over 40 awards, including Champion Strong Beer of Britain. It currently has 19 employs and has continued to experience growth in sales.
“Our reputation is built on the quality of our product and the service that we offer to our customers. We also have a clear ethos concerning our impact on the environment and we strive to make our business as sustainable as possible; it’s more than just a brewing process, it’s the way we do business as well. With this in mind, the majority of our ingredients are sourced locally, supporting the local economy and caring for the environment. For example, our spent grains are taken by a local farmer as animal feed – recycling at its best!”
Sharing his thoughts about the brewery’s crowdfunding success, CEO of West Berkshire Brewery, Simon Lewis stated:
“We are delighted to have secured this funding which will enable us to set up and run our new brewery, as well as running the extremely popular Shillibeer’s pub. We have huge plans for West Berkshire Brewery and we want to give as many people as possible the chance to join us on our journey, so we have decided to extend our fundraising campaign for a limited time.”
The company’s new brewery will be situated just a few hundred yards from the current site. It will feature state-of-the-art equipment capable of creating a range of different beer styles. West Berkshire Brewery will then provide packaging facilities for other breweries with a shop, complete with bar and beer garden will be included, along with the provision of public brewery tours in the future.
West Berkshire Brewery’s campaign is now set to close on June 24th.
