Be part of our story
We are proud to have great loyal supporters and our dream has always been to share our journey and our beer with you. By signing up to our Crowdfunder, not only will you be getting A LOT of free ABYSS beer, your support will also help us to build our new ABYSS Brewery + Tap from the ground up.

See where your money goes
Pledge and receive some great rewards including amazing savings (for every £1 you pledge, we’ll give you £1.50 of beer in our tap room), merch and invites to exclusive events including tastings, tours, workshops (and whatever other harebrained events we come up with). In short, if you like our beer and sign up to support us, then you’ll get to have tons of it and somewhere excellent to drink it.

We don’t just want your money though. Beer has the power to bring people together, and we want to use that to reflect our local communities’ interests by creating a space that celebrates everything that’s cool and creative in and around Lewes. In 2019, we held our first ever psychedelic music festival - the SUPERFUZZ Weekender in association with Acid Box Promotions, a roaring success of noisy live bands from all the world, all washed down with SUPERFUZZ IPA. The ABYSS Tap will be home to regular events including creative workshops, live music, comedy and performance - some streaming live creating an archive of ABYSS events online.

The Brewery and Tap will also be home to the ABYSS Cycle Club, the perfect base from which to explore the South Downs National Park with regular guided cycles.

There’ll be different zones to the space - maybe you want get involved with something, or maybe just enjoy a quiet beer - the good news is that it’s all possible at our ABYSS Brewery + Tap.


How long will the Crowdfunder run?
4 weeks - launching on 20th November and finishing on 18th December.

How much do we want?
We’re aiming to initially raise £15k to build our bar and deck out the space, but the more we raise, the more we will be able to develop the space. More importantly, the more you help us with this Crowdfunder, the more free beer you get!

What’s in it for me?
Beer. For every £1 you pledge, we will give you back £1.50 in beer vouchers to use at our ABYSS Brewery + Tap. And that’s only the start. We’ll be offering a some great events and merch, too.

When will I get my voucher? What will it look like? Can I buy as a gift? When will it expire? Can I get cans or is it just for beer in the taproom? Is there a God?
Your voucher will arrive in the form of a printed voucher. We will be able to print the name of the recipient so let us know if you are buying into the Crowdfunder as a gift. The vouchers are good for a year from purchase and are for beer served in the taproom - we want to get you in!

Are we going to make more beer?
Yep. We’ll carry on with the current offerings in increased quantities but will look to expand our range too once the ABYSS Brewery + Tap is set up. Supporters will receive exclusive updates about our new products and we may even ask you in to test some of them.

I don’t like beer, but I do want somewhere excellent to go out in Lewes. Is this for me?
Oh yes. Our bar will not be limited to just beer. We will have some great low intervention English wines, spirits, soft drinks, and amazing food. We’ll be putting on regular events and in time you’ll be able to hire out our brilliant space for events too.

How can I keep updated?
Sign up to our mailing list, follow us on IG, email us and as soon as we open, please come and visit us.
