A Farsley brewery and bar which launched during the pandemic has launched a £15,000 crowdfunding appeal to help expand its offering.
Amity Brew Co is asking people to support its bid to take over additional mill space in Sunny Bank Mills for oak barrel storage.
This will enable the owners to age their beer in port, rum or whisky barrels and produce new and bold flavours bottled in premium glass bottles to sell online or in the taproom.
The funds will also go towards new brewery equipment, including an additional 1,000-litre tank to create more beer as part of their Spinning Mill Barrel Project.
The crowdfunder has so far raised more than £5,600 and Amity co-founder and director Russ Clarke says he was inspired by the US model of a brewpub, making limited batch beer on-site and getting it into the hands of the community fresh and fast. He added:
“We are beer geeks at heart and have been involved in the UK craft beer scene since it exploded, so we produce a blend of core classics and exciting boundary pushing beer that we would want to drink ourselves.”

The 2,500 sq ft brewery and bar, is based in the mills’ Festoon Rooms with a paved outdoor beer garden overlooking the recently developed £2million Weavers Yard, a 5,000 sq ft outdoor space with 96 car parking spaces.
