Left Handed Giant and Peter Sanchez-Iglesias extend £1m crowdfund
Craft beer brewery Left Handed Giant has extended its crowdfunding drive to open a Bristol brewpub in partnership with chef Peter Sanchez-Iglesias.

The team said in a Crowdcube update on 30 March that the campaign will run for an additional 14 days, or until it hits its £1m target, due to continued interest.

The riverside project in Bristol’s Finzel’s Reach development​ will feature a taproom, brewery and dining space.

Sanchez-Iglesias, who is behind the city's Michelin-starred Paco Tapas and Casamia, will run a development kitchen on the first floor of the site.

The space will have a small number of covers and focus on “experimental and innovative cooking” that will inform the menu at Casamia.

The chef will also create a separate menu for brewpub customers.

Left Handed Giant's campaign hit its initial £400,000 target within a day of going live and has so far raised £859,000 from 1246 investors.

The company, run by former BrewDog operations director Bruce Gray, has been brewing in Bristol since 2015.
