Freedom Brewery’s crowdfunding campaign is set to hit it’s target as it goes live to the public today (14.06.22) with £497k of its target already raised by current and pre-registered investors. The campaign target is £500k to expand the brewery’s production capacity and marketing spend to take advantage of the opportunity in the craft lager category. Over the last five years Freedom’s current private equity investors, including Oakfield Capital, have invested in the production infrastructure to grow the business to a projected £6m turnover this year and £10m by 2025.

This morning as the campaign went live to the public on Crowdcube, James Coyle executive Chairman said: “We are absolutely delighted and humbled by the backing of our fans and current investors who have shown their commitment to Freedom even before this campaign opens to the wider public.  The more we are able to raise the more we will be able to achieve, this is an incredibly exciting time for the business.”

Freedom’s vision is to become one the UK’s largest independent craft lager brewers. Its customer base in independent and influential outlets has developed the brand in recent years with award winning on trade customers including Nandos, Daisy Green, Flat Iron, Cubitt House, Cirrus Inns and the Alchemist. Off trade growth has come from supermarkets and e-commerce sites including Ocado, Aldi, Lidl, Flavourly and Moonpig.

It has 66k subscribed followers and 30k loyal social media followers in an increasingly competitive market.

The crowdfunding campaign opens to the public on 14 June 2022 and runs for 2 weeks.
