To all our mates, Grant Smith and Andrew Newton, the founders and directors of Two Mates Brewing, are setting up a Go Fund Me page to assist in the rebuild of their community-based Craft Brewery In South Lismore.
Born from a love of family and friendship, Two Mates had the vision to create a space to gather and grow friendships and nurture families while appreciating the things that the Northern Rivers Region is renowned for, great food, good music and cold brews.
The devastation both financially and emotionally of the unprecedented events of the recent floods in Lismore has our families in complete shock. However, our business and our families are resilient and determined to rebuild our brewery for the community now more than ever.
Unfortunately, our insurance company has notified us that our policy (like 90% of business's in Lismore) does not cover flood damage if the floods exceed the Levy wall, unless we had paid the enormous premium to activate this clause. This has added to our devastation, having already funded the start-up phase of the business solely between our two families.
Two Mates will direct all funds associated with this appeal into the re establishment of all the Brewery and Taphouse operations, ensuring that we will return to delivering the same quality product and service as we did before this catastrophic natural disaster.
We thank you in advance
Grant & Andrew
