Why should I invest in MiniBrew

MiniBrew is a lucrative company that fights for diversity of beers and easier global distribution with an all-in-one brewing and dispense solution.

What will the funds being used for?

The funds raised via the MiniBrew crowdfunding campaign will help us unlock important distribution & sales channels. The funds will also be invested in product development to lower the price of the machine, which will allow more beer lovers to become brewers and more breweries to distribute their beer globally. As we expand, we expect an increased spend on marketing and acquisition, and we plan to make the most of the current opportunities available to us in the craft beer and home brewing industry. As such, your investment will go towards investing in the brewers of tomorrow

Who can invest?

Anyone aged 18 or over, or companies or trust funds residing in the world, except resident of the US, Canada and Japan. If you’re resident from those countries please follow the steps to submit a non-standard investment form online -->

I don’t have a credit or debit card to invest. What now?

That’s not a problem. You can invest from as little as £10 if you have a credit card. For wire transfers the minimum investment is £1000. Please submit a non-standard investment form online --> and a Crowdcube employee will approve your pledge. Please note that Crowdcube will inform you when you transfer the funds from your account into the company bank account when the campaign has closed

Can I sell or give my share to anyone else?

Yes. We have a flexible exit strategy in place. We have identified multiple outcomes. Minibrew could be bought up by a bigger company, an IPO could happen or we could continue to grow naturally. As an investor, you are entitled to sell your shares to said a company or alternatively to existing shareholders (a secondary market offering ). As a company, we're fully focused on growth and achieving one of these milestones.

When do I get my shares?

After the full investment amount is paid to the company, Crowdcube will issues shares electronically to your Crowdcube account. This will be approximately 2-3 weeks from the date the payment is made.

What tax will I have to pay on this investment?

Investors are advised to take their own tax advice on the tax consequences of acquiring, holding and disposing shares. Soon we've more information to share if we are EIS pending

Why do you raise equity via Crowdcube?

Crowdcube is recognised as the UK’s most active investors base. Previous successful beer companies who have used the platform include Brewdog and Wild beer.

What are the benefits?

Good that you are asking. As Minibrew shareholder you receive discounts (starting from 5% up 33% on hardware and beer recipes. You also receive the option to claim a special founder edition. You also get the opportunity to get 1 free recipe of each beer that’s launched on the platform. That could mean unlimited beer.

Ok. I have invested. Now what?

That’s amazing. Welcome aboard the Minibrew community. All Crowdcube investors will receive details on how to claim shares and how to claim your discounts on after the campaign is complete and the cooling off period ends.

What are the risks of investing?

Investors capital is a risk. There is no guarantee that the business assumption will be made. Changes in circumstances may mean that the company fails to perform in line with its financials projections. Please make sure you read the disclaimer of the pitch deck carefully for further detail on the risks of investing.

What happens if I change my mind?

We’ll be sad to see you go, but we understand people’s circumstances sometimes change. If you would like to cancel your investment please let Crowdcube know by emailing When the Minibrew campaign is active you can cancel anytime, but as soon the cooling off period starts, which is generally seven days, you have a final 7 days time to cancel your investment. After the cooling period payment will be processed.

I’m a backer of Indiegogo. Can I invest in the equity crowdfunding campaign?

Of course you can. As crowdfunding for equity is different than crowdfunding for a product you can submit an investment to get discounts. Make sure your information is identical and we link up your accounts on after the CrowdCube campaign closes.

Do I have rights on dividend?

Yes. However, the board will discuss each year how to apply to funds in the bank. For the first years, assumption is that the money will be re-invested to grow the company further rather than paying out dividends.

What is Equity Crowdfunding

Equity crowdfunding is the process whereby people (i.e. the ‘crowd’) invest in an early-stage unlisted company in exchange for shares in that company. A shareholder has partial ownership of a company and is entitled to a share of its profits.

What's the difference between a private and public launch?

We are giving friends & colleagues from our community the chance to invest early before the campaign goes live. We could already fill up the full campaign before going public.

What is the minimum investment?

You can invest from as little as £10 if you have a credit card. For wire transfers the minimum investment is £1000.

How much do you want to raise?

Based on our £18 Million pre-money valuation we want to raise a minimal of £750K to a maximum of £2.25M.

We can share a deck for investments above £1000. Please send an email to Edwin, our CEO at to discuss the details of our deck
