Purity Brewing Co., a UK-based independent brewery, received a £7.5m investment from BGF.
In conjunction with the funding, BGF’s Paul Oldham will join the board of Purity.
The company intends to use the funds to expand across the UK, grow export sales, and to develop new products.
Founded in 2005 by Paul Halsey and Jim Minkin, Purity makes high quality beers from its brewery in Great Alne, Warwickshire. The business, which was named as The Good Pub Guide’s Brewery of the Year in 2018, produces a range of international beers including:
– Pure Gold,
– Pure UBU,
– Mad Goose,
– Lawless Lager and
– Longhorn IPA.
With a commitment to brewing beer sustainably, the company uses heat-and-steam technology to reduce energy consumption at its 90,000 hectolitres brewery. A natural ‘wetland’ system cleanses the waste water and the spent hops are used as fertiliser on the local farm.
Purity has built a national network of customers – with a quarter of sales going to Midlands-based independent free trade pubs.
