Where are they based?        




What do they do?     


Bring clean water to the neediest parts of the world using the beer market.


Why were they nominated? 


Brewgooder have made an incredible social and environmental impact through their innovative enterprise.


What have they achieved?   


After launching the venture on World Water Day in 2016 Brewgooder organised a #DrinkBeerGiveWater crowdfunder which closed after 3 weeks having raised £60,000, exceeding the £50,000 target. 


Brewgooder have sold more than 1.2 million cans of its beer and provided clean water to more than 64,000 people.


Brewgooder stockists now exceed 3,000 across the UK and has deals with Asda, Aldi and Tesco.  It also has a tie-in with the Co-op’s Well Dig across that supermarket’s 400-plus stores and aims to sell enough four-packs to exclusively fund clean water access for the villages of Matipa and Waluma in Malawi.


Income has grown from £160,000 in the first year to £540,000 in the second and is expected to hit £800,000 in the next 12 months.


It has also signed up high-profile names at Glenfiddich parent company William Grant & Sons and Skyscanner to join its board and help steer the brand, which has a modest head count of seven and looks likely to reach £2.5 million in annual sales by the cost of the financial year ending 2021.


Travel search engine giant Skyscanner is one of the firms to have signed up to Brewgooder’s Office Beer Club, a corporate subscription service for organisations who can use the beers for, say, drinks in the office on a Friday and count it towards their corporate social responsibility activity.


Amazon, Tesla, smoothie company Innocent and challenger bank Monzo are also on the list of about 100 organisations, ensuring the product is going into influential hands.


Brewgooder can also lay claim to being a Scottish EDGE winner and has received backing from Sir Tom Hunter’s The Hunter Foundation.
