A local brewery is hoping to get the drinks flowing as it looks to become the UK’s market-leading craft-beer network.

Delavals Ltd, based in Seaton Delaval, is aiming to raise £400,000 through crowdfunding to achieve its dream.

The company, which has the sole licence to run the National Trust Beer Club, will use part of the money to pay for marketing and publicity.

Bosses have launched the crowdfunding through InvestingZone and are looking for public support.

With a boom in craft-beer sales, Delavals chief executive John Gilfillan said: “The National Trust has a rich history with brewing as many of its old properties previously housed craft breweries.”

Delavals will use a large part of the money to pay for marketing and publicity, helping to generate business, as well as expanding its campaigns to the general public.
