Countdown to Crowdfunding

Admin, June 16, 2015

There’s less than 24 hours to go as Beehive Brae counts down to the close of its spring CrowdfunderUK project.

The unique Scottish meadery is looking to meet a target of £2,500 to help fund the expansion of the brewing facilities due to the growing mead demand. For those pledging money to the cause, there’s a number of gifts available from bottles of first edition mead to candles, honey and even adopting bees.

The project will close at 11.30am tomorrow (Tues 16th June, 2015).

“The world’s largest association of mead makers, the AMMA reported a 42% increase of mead sales in the United States last year and already in the UK sales are up 15%. The AMMA put that down to the Game of Thrones effect but meads resurgence is down to much more than the fantasy drama. Fine food buffs and sustainable shoppers are being drawn to mead because of its quality and the positive impact it has on the environment. We’re hoping that our mead production will also lead to an increase in beehives numbers to help support dwindling honeybee populations.

“When we decided to expand the meadery we looked to an ethical funding method. The global financial crisis has turned many people away from big bank loans. Instead the popularity of crowdfunding businesses such as CrowdfunderUK, that we are using, have grown beyond expectation, with the alternative lending industry due to double its revenue in 2015. It’s a platform we’ve used successfully before and one we hope works again this time round, but there’s only a few hours remaining for people kind enough to donate.”

Donating is easy, just a couple of clicks
