A bank that treats you like family

Operating and growing a craft brewery is a personal and professional adventure that takes an incredible amount of passion, quality beers and consistent innovation. While these attributes are essential, the foundation of any successful craft brewery business is a personal investment in the people and relationships that shape your brewery’s brand and culture – people that you likely consider family.

At Live Oak Bank, we are just as invested in your success as you are in the people and relationships that shape your brewery. As a bank that specializes in brewery loans nationwide, we work with craft brewers every day to help them reach their goals. Whether you’re seeking to expand your current facility or increase capacity by adding equipment, our financing expertise and industry knowledge will help your business thrive.
