Full Circle Brewery, which offers entertainment along with its craft beers in downtown Fresno, will change ownership after 16 years with a farewell party for current operators Bill McCrory and Kenny Young.

Full Circle Brewing Co., one of Fresno’s leading craft beer makers, has raised more than $800,000 as part of crowdfunding equity campaign.

The craft brewery at 620 F St. is more than three-fourths of the way toward meeting their goal. With the additional funding, they will be able to increase their productivity tenfold.

Working with Breakaway Funding LLC, a Sausalito-based crowdfunding firm, and Fresno First Bank, the crowdfunding equity drive has proven effective for the Fresno brewer.

“We are humbled by the community’s response, happy to welcome our new investors, and ready to put the capital to work,” said Arthur Moye, chief executive officer for Full Circle Brewing. “We see a bright future for Full Circle, downtown Fresno, and Chinatown. Truthfully our success would not be possible without the support of the City of Fresno, our investors, and amazing staff.”

The funds will be used to buy new brewing equipment, make more room for customers, and to can and distribute craft beer to retailers throughout California. The brewery will also be adding more jobs.

Full Circle Brewing continues to welcome investment in the brewery. Those interested can learn more by visiting www.tapin.beer.
