There are over 48,000 public houses & bars in the UK. Recent times have been challenging for the brewery industry.

Getting the right brewery finance can be challenging as funding in this sector is few & far between, and those finance brokers who do offer financial support and advice lack the knowledge to help you make the best decisions for your business.

Here at Union Business Finance, our team of brokers include individuals who are knowledgeable in various sectors in which we offer financial loans. Whether you need to purchase brewery equipment, open a new premise or take over an existing one, we will guide you every step of the way, to help you choose the right financing solution for your needs.

What funding options are available for the brewing industry?

Asset finance

Many breweries often do not have the cash flow required to purchase the necessary equipment & machinery for brewing. Constantly hiring out barrels and parts that you don’t own can be exhausting and costly in the long run. Similarly, your brewery might be growing really well resulting in expanding your manufacturing facilities, opening a tasting bar, or perhaps even offering overnight accommodation so clientele don’t have to drive after a tasting session. Asset financing can help you do all these things.

We can provide your brewery business with the funding & support you need to help expand and grow. Our experts will support and guide you at every step of the way throughout your financial journey with Union Business Finance.

Van & Commercial Vehicle Finance

Essential workhorses of the brewery industry, vans and commercial vehicles play a vital role in the distribution network, providing timely deliveries and boosting brand awareness. Whether it be transit vans for smaller deliveries, fork-lift trucks, tankers, flat-bed lorries, or curtain-sided HGVs, the industry would fail to operate without them. Leveraging van and commercial vehicle finance empowers breweries to scale operations, reach new markets, and thrive in a competitive industry landscape.

Discover how our commercial vehicle and van financing can help you grow your business.

Business loans

Buying new equipment/premises outright might not be on the cards for you right now. You might want to trial out new equipment before you decide to purchase, just to see if it’s the right fit for your business.

A business loan with us can give you the funding you need to explore your needs and wants for the business. In addition a business loan can contribute towards employing a team of experts in the brewing industry and expand your workforce as your business expands.

Growth of a business derives with the aid of marketing, both digital & visual. Our business loans can be used to fund these essential investments as you wish.

Cash Flow Loans

Whilst COVID-19 is thankfully beginning to feel like a distant memory, it was easy to see just how rapidly the leisure industry was hit by a sudden change in circumstances. Thankfully, our lender’s cash flow loans provide a vital lifeline for breweries navigating uncertain times. These loans offer immediate financial relief, injecting liquidity to cover operational expenses, maintain inventory, and sustain growth initiatives. With flexible repayment terms, breweries can adapt to fluctuating demand and market conditions, accelerating recovery efforts.

If you need help with short term cash flow, don’t struggle; contact us to discover how cash flow financing can help you today.

Asset refinancing

If you already own a brewery, a pub/bar, or heavy & valuable machinery, you can refinance these assets to make them work more for you. You can take out loans on existing assets and use them to fund additional development.
