A microbrewery located beside Botley Hill Farmhouse, near Tatsfield, is launching a crowdfunding campaign to secure a beer-flavoured future for its corner of the Surrey Hills.
The Titsey Brewing Co is looking to raise £30,000 in just one month to help finance new equipment and reach more beer lovers in the area.
The campaign, which encourages members of the public to invest their money in return for a range of exciting rewards, will launch this coming Monday, October 1.
“We’ve had such amazing feedback from the pubs, events and shops we’ve supplied in our first year, as well as the people who have enjoyed our beers, but at times it has been really difficult keeping up with the demand,” explains owner and brewer, Craig Vroom
“It’s a great problem to have, of course, but as I set up Titsey Brewing Co as a one man band it does have its challenges.
“I spend most days working in an old, cramped farm shed and hand delivering beers as fast as I can brew them.
“To move up to the next level, I need people to join me on the adventure. As Surrey’s highest brewery, I have a feeling it’s going to be quite a journey too.”
By way of temptation, Titsey Brewing Co’s crowdfunding rewards range from claiming a gift pack of beers to having Craig run a Titsey bar for an event. These will be available to claim at crowdfunder.co.uk/titseybrewingco from the launch date.
Founded in 2017, this microbrewery’s beers celebrate the history and heritage of the Titsey Estate, near Oxted.
Craig’s beers are all named after families associated with the estate and the current range of ales includes Gower Wolf, a best bitter; Gresham Hopper, a pale ale; and Leveson Buck, a session IPA that’s available in cask and keg.
He also produces a craft Innes Lager, which is his most recent release and only hit taps at the end of August.
Titsey Brewing Co’s crowdfunding campaign will go live on Monday at crowdfunder.co.uk/titseybrewingco
