Fund 2015: Recipient Updates – Byrne the Cake Brewery


This March we launched our first ever funding scheme with a pot of £15,000 that was shared between nine projects from Levenshulme residents who were chomping at the bit to do something new that coincided with our social aims – exploring new ideas for our high street or creating or growing their own retail enterprises. All our winners have now received their funding and have been beavering away getting their projects off the ground over the last six months and have agreed to share their progress with us…and you! So over the next eight weeks we will share updates from each of our winning projects on what they have been up to since March and how they have spent their funding so far.

Last week we heard from Woolly Mammoth, and this time it’s the turn of Byrne the Cake Brewery – the brainchild of David Foulger who received £610 to begin the process of launching Levenshulme’s own artisan brewery and helping to gain more attention for Levenshulme’s independent traders and producers. David gave us this update:

Byrne the cake is moving along nicely. I have recently finished my third brew since purchasing the equipment that the fund paid for and the results are improving every time. I have started bottling the beer and have been studying the effects storing the beer has on the product. Design is under way for my labelling and I am now working on the aesthetics of design for my stall.
The fund went a long way in helping me to purchase the equipment I needed to get off the ground and now is the hard part in creating a product that I’m 100% happy with.
