Asset Finance for the Brewing Industry

The brewing industry is constantly evolving

Our team of specialists have significant finance experience working with customers in the UK’s beer industry.

The UK’s beer industry is worth around £9 billion (Statista, 2022). Interest in craft beers has helped fuel this profit. However, for many small breweries, this is a double-edged sword.

An increase in interest in craft beers has resulted in a growth in micro-breweries, meaning an increasing number of companies are sharing the beer profits. Coupled with an uncertain market, this means existing businesses are finding it more difficult to access the finance they need to grow.

Why choose asset finance for your Brewery

At Charter Hall, we understand how crucial it is to have the equipment you need when starting or expanding your distillery or brewery.

Raising capital for conditioning and fermenting tanks and filtration systems can be difficult in an uncertain market where you have an array of other costs to consider, including licenses, waste management systems and meeting environmental regulations.

Brewery equipment financing through hire purchase, refinancing, or leasing removes the need for capital outlay and allows you to work with an expert to create a package that works for you.

Opting for machinery finance that leverages the equipment you already own helps you to stay ahead of the competition and meet changing tastes. Charter Hall can provide tailored, affordable funding that enables you to stay ahead of the curve.

Machinery finance is not a one size fits all approach to funding. Our experts discuss your needs, outlook, and current financial status to find the best option for you. Leases and hire purchase agreements allow you to access the equity locked in your assets. You get modern equipment that meets all food safety standards without breaking the bank.

We create a repayment plan that works for you and can account for seasonal changes in your income. We help you look towards the future and achieve your goals, whether by expanding on the same site, opening new breweries, or adding new beer lines.
