Powderkeg Brewery – Kegs, Fermentation equipment, and a forklift for their craft brewery
Awarded £14,089.41 (40% of the total project costs of £35,223.53) of LEADER funding from Making it Local to purchase Kegs, Fermentation equipment, and a forklift for their craft brewery.
John Magill, an experienced microbiologist, started Powderkeg Brewery in 2015. John produces modern British Keg Craft beers. They are Devon’s only dedicated keg micro-brewery. In October 2016 they won the ‘Best Lager’ award at the Beer awards.
Demand for the beers that John produces has doubled each year; he is now at the stage that he needed to expand to meet the demand. Therefore John applied to Making it Local for help to increase his fermentation equipment so that he can double production, 200 kegs, so that he can supply more customers and a fork lift so that he can increase the useable storage space in the unit. PowderKeg beers are currently distributed in South Devon, East Devon and Bristol.
The project will create 1 FTE over the next 2 years.
