Spanish brewery, La Brava Beer, has closed its equity crowdfunding campaign on Crowdcube. The company secured €264,600 from 114 investors.
La Brava describes its brews as Pilsen-style lager that has 100% natural ingredients, which means it contains no preservatives, additives or yeast enhancers, and the fermentation process is three times longer than that of many industrial brewers.
“La Brava is a tasty pilsner lager, with body and an intense golden colour, but adapted to Catalan tastes with a slightly higher alcohol content (5.1%) than most pilsner lagers. It is brewed with completely natural ingredients using the traditional method adopted from the Czech city of Pilsen.”
The company also noted:
“We defend our status as nomads or gypsy brewers, as do some of the world’s most prestigious master brewers. With our original recipe, our ingredients and under our own supervision, La Brava is brewed in a hundred-year-old brewery in the Czech Republic, the best possible site to remain faithful to the most popular style of beer in the world. Our entire process provides optimum conditions for maturation and a better flavour.”
La Brava is currently available in 33cl bottles and 30l barrels. The company reported in August 2016, it recorded a total of 700,000 beers sold and its beers is at 500 sales points throughout Catalonia. It already exports its product to Australia and is now negotiating export to France.
The Crowdcube campaign is La Brava’s second equity crowdfunding round. In February 2015, the company secured €117,650 during its first round.
