Bradford Brewery, the fledgling Yorkshire-based venture, has secured £300k of new funding to support its growth plans, which include the launch of a brewpub.

The  company said that the new investment from Envestors North will enable Bradford Brewery to launch from its own fully refurbished brewpub in Bradford city centre on Westgate and support its marketing drive to attract further expansion capital.

The deal follows a recent announcement of a new £50,000 loan facility agreed by Bradford-based loan provider Business Enterprise Fund.

The business will use the investment secured through Envestors to complete the property renovation, purchase their first brewplant, with a brewing capacity of 16,000 pints per week and bolster its cash balance.

Managing director Matthew Halliday said: “Bradford Brewery is a new business with big ambitions. We want to be as synonymous with the city as David Hockney, Bradford Bulls and Bradford City Football Club. This investment, coupled with our own funds and the recently approved loan facility from Business Enterprise Fund will allow us to enter the market from a very strong financial position. We’ll be working to make sure there’s a Bradford beer on the bar of every pub across the district.”
