A SCOTTISH brewer is well on the way to building the largest major brewery in Edinburgh for over 150 years.

Innis & Gunn’s Beer Money crowdfunding campaign has passed the crucial £2 million mark, two-thirds of the way to their £3m target.

More than 1200 investors have pledged their support to the brand so far, with investments starting at £20.

The new brewery, the location of which is due to be announced shortly, will bring all production and packaging in house, simplifying the current outsourced model and reducing costs, while simultaneously reducing the company’s carbon footprint.

It will also create around 30 jobs and give Innis & Gunn the opportunity to offer brewing services to others for the first time, with doors set to open in 2021.

Dougal Gunn Sharp, Founder and Master Brewer at Innis & Gunn said: “Our ambition to put Edinburgh back on the brewing map is now well advanced and we have our amazing investors to thank for that.”
