Wild Card brewery is offering keen beer drinkers the opportunity to become shareholders
There is going to be some amazing time for beer enthusiasts as a leading independently-owned brewery has lot on cards.
Wild Card Brewery has decided to go for crowd funding and it is the keen beer fan that stands to gain because of the attractive proposals from the leading brewery. Beer drinkers are going to have a great time by participating in the brewery’s expansion plans.
Under the proposal, beer drinkers will have the opportunity to own a share in brewery. They will be able to contribute to Wild Card Brewery’s expansion and have a real stake in its future as the company proposes to buy more brewing equipment for its two sites. The shareholders will be offered invites to exclusive events and beer merchandise.
The company’s directors are hoping to raise £250,000 to fund refurbishments for its expansion plans which will mean more beer for keen drinkers. One of the directors of the company, William Harris, is expecting as little as £10 from investors.
However, there is no upper limit to the amount investors can contribute to the campaign.
Mr Harris said:
“We have not been able to make enough beer to meet our demands for a while now.
“It’s make or break time. Now is the time to grow the company.
“We started on a credit card and it’s been quite a shoestring operation so far.
“Ever since we started we have had great support from the people of Walthamstow and Waltham Forest in general coming in and buying the beer and recommending us.
“This is a great opportunity for people to own a stake in their local brewery.”
This step by the brewery is expected to create more job opportunities for brewers.
The brewery launched Walthamstow’s first locally-made lager last year. It scooped the award for London’s top brew at the Urban Food Awards.
