Bristol brewery seeks £1 million in crowdfunding

Bristol Brewery Left Handed Giant is currently in the closing stages of an ambitious crowdfunding campaign, with the company looking to raise £1million to fund its Finzels Reach development.

The campaign launched at the beginning of May and hit the initial £400,000 target within 24 hours. Stepping up its ambitions, the brewery is now looking to raise up to £1 million to build the brewpub project, which will feature a taproom, brewery and a restaurant partnership with one of the city’s most exciting chefs.

Bruce Gray, Managing Director at Left Handed Giant, said: “The aim of this brewpub project is to create a world-class facility where communities of friends and investors can have a real input into the day-to-day of the business, as well as having the opportunity to drink locally brewed fresh beer.”

The funds raised will be spread across different projects with the bulk being put towards to development of the Brewpub at Finzels Reach, which will also feature a new dining offering.

Left Handed Giant have teamed up with Bristol Michelin-starred chef Pater Sanchez-Iglesias, who will be operating a restaurant from the first floor of the development as well as developing a separate offering for customers of the brewpub in the neighbouring kitchen.

Peter Sanchez-Iglesias adds: “Forming this partnership with such a well-respected force as Left Handed Giant and creating food to go with their beer is an awesome project to be involved with. The development kitchen will evolve and enhance everything we do at Casamia, with our hyper seasonal dishes on an ever-changing menu, using the best ingredients, cooking it to perfection and then finding out what it needs to make it better.”

Left Handed Giant, which gets its name from the old legend that the Avon Gorge was carved by hand by the original left handed giant, has been part of the Bristol brewing scene since 2015.
