Crowdfunding a neighborhood pub and microbrewery

A neighborhood microbrewery is a good indication that you’re living in a progressive area, but a crowdfunded one? Let’s just say if that were the case, there’d probably be a lot of reason to get together, hoist a beer and celebrate every milestone one could think of. BeerBankroll is planning to be the business model behind that brewery (but thank goodness not the name of the brewery). In the land of the neighborhood pub, it’s not surprising this is a UK joint.
