Innis & Gunn go crowdfunding

Independent craft brewer, Innis & Gunn, has gone to great new heights to create its latest beer, Sky PA – made from water taken from the Scottish clouds!

The new pale ale marks the launch of Innis & Gunn’s first-ever equity crowdfunding campaign, which encourages the investor community to get involved in exciting new innovations.

To harvest water from the clouds, Innis & Gunn created a bespoke airborne device fitted with a turbine and condenser that sucked moisture directly from the cloud and cooled it into water. The fresh tasting beer is made from a number of uniquely sourced ingredients, showing the sky is the limit in the Innis & Gunn pursuit of high-quality beer flavours.

The brewer, known for its oak maturation processes, as well as creating innovations such as the world’s first beer marmalade, is launching its first equity crowdfunding round AdventureCapital in a bid to build a community of like-minded individuals, who are both passionate about great beer and keen to shake up the industry.

Aiming to raise £1 million via Crowdcube with investments starting at £10, the money will fund the brewer’s continued experimentation with beers, increase capacity at its newly acquired brewery and support the roll-out of The Beer Kitchen, Innis & Gunn’s award-winning bar and restaurant specialising in food and beer pairings.

Dougal Gunn Sharp, founder and master brewer at Innis & Gunn, said: “Through AdventureCapital we’re inviting people to own a piece of Innis & Gunn. Experimentation is in our blood and we’re incredibly excited to invite beer lovers and investors everywhere to join us on our quest to push the boundaries of beer.

“We’ve never made shares available before, and I couldn’t think of anyone better to offer them to than the people who want to help us discover where we can take the beer of tomorrow. Through AdventureCapital , we’re hoping we can invent more brews like Sky.P.A. with a group of people as passionate as we are about beer.”
