Christmas gift with a difference – crowd fund a brewery…

So this one is a bit of a Christmas gift with a difference. For starters, it won’t be delivered to you in time for Christmas. This is a chance to get your hands on some beer from a newish brewery in Huddersfield, in exchange for helping them with their expansion ideas.

Lord’s Brewing Co is expanding and they need a new home. Their dream is a larger brewery & tap room. Your backing can make that dream come true.

They aim to transform newly acquired premises at Heath House Mill, Golcar into an exciting new brewing facility with a tap room and function space. An injection of funding will allow then to increase output, rejuvenate the complex and help them to break into larger markets. The intent is that expansion will create jobs for local people. Here is some of that space.


The company was founded in September 2015 by three brothers-in-law; a former library assistant, a mechanic and a boxer (who merely masquerades as a desk jockey). It sounds like the start of a bad joke, but they are serious about what they do and say they are here to stay. They love crafting beer that is high quality, full of flavour, interesting and accessible. Their core values are family, friends, the local community, tradition, innovation and quality.

Some of the rewards on offer are as follows:-

£25 reward – a gift pack of 5 bottles, a tote bag, 4 beer mats and a big thank you!

£50 reward – a mixed case of 12 bottles, a tote bag, 4 beer mats and a t-shirt.
