The first image has been released of plans for the largest brewery in the capital for 150 years, due to open its doors in 2021.

Scottish craft beer company Innis & Gunn hopes to raise £3 million through its ‘Beer Money’ campaign to build the Edinburgh brewery.

The fundraising campaign is run by Seedrs, a London-based platform allowing members of the public to invest online in start-ups and businesses.

The brewery will bring all production and packaging in-house and allow Innis & Gunn to take on brewing services for other companies for the first time.

Innis & Gunn founder and Master Brewer Dougal Gunn Sharp said: “At this time of division, doom and gloom, the originality and inclusivity of the Innis & Gunn brand and business is a shining light of optimism that bring people together in celebration of great beer.

“This is the opportunity of a lifetime – to be part of the project to build Edinburgh’s first large-scale brewery in over 150 years.

“By investing in Innis & Gunn Beer Money, you will be helping to create a new legacy for our brand and for brewing in Edinburgh, and Scotland, that will last a lifetime.”

The company ran a similar crowdfunding campaign in 2015 to buy its first ever brewery in Perth.

Since then Innis & Gunn has grown to almost 21 million pints and increased turnover to over £25 million.

Those wishing to register to invest in the brewery can do so on their Seedrs page.
