A small investment in an up-and-coming project is a great thing to do for a gift or just to give back to your community. It’s great to support a local businesses, so we investigate some of the best current campaigns to give you the low-down on food & drink projects.
This Bristol brewery have some large-scale plans to open a new ‘brewpub’ in 2018 overlooking the new Finzels Reach development.
Above the brewpub will be a waited restaurant where the kitchen will also provide lighter snacks to the brewpub below. The existing tap room in St Philip’s will transform into a barrel store and production facility.
The share offer is looking to raise £450,000 to buy equipment and pay for the installation & fit-out.
They are a craft brewery and community space which provides training and employment to people currently serving or recently released from prison sentences.
They specialise in bold and flavourful keg beer and are the first brewery to bring sour beer to Oxford, their core range includes an exciting mixture of hoppy pales, dark, Belgian, gluten free and sour styles.
First specialist beer bar: there won’t be any tellies, loud music or gambling machines but there will be plenty of good beer. They plan to specialise in beer from Mancunian brewers and to also have a wide choice of bottles from elsewhere in the UK and from other great brewing countries such as Belgium, Germany and America.
Taylor’s Pie and Ale House, Sittingbourne, Kent
Michael Taylor felt that Sittingbourne is missing something… a place where people can go and get quality great British food at a reasonable price. With the building of hundreds of new homes in the Sittingbourne and Milton region, now is a better time than ever!
He’s already putting everything he has into this project, he just needs a bit of help to push him across the finish line and get the funding he needs. The £10,000 raised will go into renovation of the restaurant, making it the vibrant and exciting restaurant that Sittingbourne deserves.
Cafe Mor is a much loved street food outlet situated, for half of the year, in one of the most beautiful spots in the UK, Freshwater West beach, Pembrokeshire. Over the course of our latest season it has sadly become apparent that our beloved catering trailer has fallen into disrepair and needs to retire. We began a project to create a replacement, we just need a some help getting her seaworthy, or should I say kitchen ready in time for 2018!
The Josie June is an old fishing boat, which, after many months of hard work, and with much help from our good friend Will, has successfully been transformed into a trailer ready to tow to and from sunny Freshwater West. However before the magic can happen, we’re in need of some essential finishing touches. These come in the shape of cooking equipment, fixtures and fittings, a surprise ice-cream related adjustment to the cabin and finally some much needed signage and prettying up! This is where we need you. One last push and the magnificent Josie June will set sail in March 2018.
