Troncoso, most recently of London’s Camden Town Brewery, has targeted July 2016 for the launch of Lost and Grounded Brewers in Bristol.
“We are really excited to have Made by HAND (MBH) on board as one of our shareholders,” he announced in a blog post this week.
“These guys were four of the original founders of Little Creatures Brewing in Australia back in 2000, and to have them with us feels like our lives have come full circle.
“Annie and I have put our life savings into this dream, but we knew we would need some help to get there in the end.
“MBH, along with a few other good folk, are investing on a passive basis and are prepared to offer advice if we need it, but likewise equally happy to sit back, have a pint and watch things unfold,” Troncoso said.
Made By HAND recently invested in Melbourne’s Boatrocker Brewery, assisting to fund its new Braeside barrel room.
