Accidental Brewery Expansion.

As many of you know, we are fast approaching our 2nd Accidental Birthday.
What a journey it has been so far!

The past two years have been scary, exciting, joyous, fun, musical, hard-work, frightening and, most recently, damn right devastating. However, we have kept up the momentum of this journey, through these crazy last few months. This is because of our wonderful customers and great fanbase, who have spurred us on to continue brewing, delivering during lockdown and selling our beer from the car park!

Last Friday, we picked up the keys 🗝 for our NEW Brewery in MORECAMBE!

The building dates back to the late 1800s and has a history steeped in the Morecambe fishing industry. It is old and quirky and will make a great partner to our micro-pub in Lancaster.

WE WILL BE EXPANDING OUR BREWING CAPACITY!

Our current output is simply not enough for our craft-beer fans in Lancaster and the surrounding areas, so we have decided to increase this by investing £140K into an already successful Accidental Brewery.

We are well into the process of designing and building a brand new brewhouse with a larger capacity output than our current system, which will be housed in Morecambe. This will help us on our way to try to meet the demand for Accidental Brewery’s beer.

Currently, we brew 120 litres per batch. Our new brewery will produce around 650 litres. That’s over 5 times more.

Having a larger capacity will enable us to meet more of the demand for our beer, have more taps pouring Accidental beer in our bar in Lancaster as well as enabling other micro-pubs to serve to their customers locally and nationally.

The new brewery is a whopping 163 square metres compared to our current size of 57 square metres in Lancaster (and that includes the seating area). It feels huge and we are so excited.

Our new brewery will not only house the new brewhouse but will also allow us the space to brew more styles of beer such as barrel aged stouts, sour beers and of course lots more hazy brews.

However, due to the impact of COVID-19, we have forecasted short by around £15,000 to complete the purchase of our shiny new brewery equipment.

Therefore, we are asking for your help and support, launching a campaign to try to raise the money through our Accidental Brewery customer base.🙏🏻

'Pay it forward’ is a new way of crowdfunding in which you actually receive something and more for your donation. Once you have pledged an amount, from the list below, you will automatically receive a receipt and your gift-card plus other perks, will be sent in the coming weeks.

The gift card is redeemable against Accidental Brewery beers at our bar in Lancaster or online and only once our new brewery is producing beer. (hopefully first quarter of 2021)
