Salthouse Bottles is soon to open in Brockley, offering a carefully selected range of beer and cider and wine, including seasonal specials and limited releases.
Shelves will be stacked with bottles, but we would also like to provide draught beer to take home - we are raising the additional funds needed for the required equipment and refillable bottles (growlers).
We will stock draught beers from the best brewers from the UK and from further afield. The focus will be on supplying you high quality, interesting beer to take home.
The Equipment We will purchase a device known as a Pegas CrafTap, which is able to select and dispense a chosen beer into a glass bottle. At any given time, we plan to offer up to four choices of quality beer for growler-fill.
The Growlers These have a 1 litre capacity, are made of amber glass and have an airtight swing-top seal. They are also printed with Salthouse Bottles branding. This is yours to keep, to fill, to use, to refill and to re-use. Once filled and sealed, your beer will stay fresh for weeks.
Risks and challenges
As a group of experienced shop owners and managers we feel we are well equipped to deal with the inevitable bumps in the road that any small business can expect. We believe we have planned a robust business for which there will be good level of demand in the local area.
This fundraising project is specifically for the growler-filling element of the business. We have planned this business both with and without a growler-fill element, although we believe that to offer draught beer via growler-fill will mean greater choice and a more interactive experience for our customers.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
