A Fierce expansion

ABERDEEN-based craft brewer Fierce Beer is set to expand production after securing funding from Barclays bank.

The £120,000 funding package will go towards the cost of new production equipment that will replace the firm’s current hand bottling machine; production capacity will increase from 300 to 2000 units per hour.

The funding will also provide working capital to support future growth for the brewery, which was founded in 2015 by directors Dave Grant and David McHardy.
