It all started in January when we ripped out our old 10bbl brewhouse, we loved that kit and have the old dear to thank for so much. I’m pleased to say it has gone to a great home with a great future, Theo at Deya Brewing in Cheltenham has her up and running and is turning out some great beers. Anyway, throughout January and for most of February we were installing and commissioning our new 30bbl, 4 vessel ABE brewhouse. The upscaling also meant we needed to upgrade the incoming electricity, gas, and water, plus install a new chiller and steam boiler. Oh, and get new drains and floors laid. So, basically, we built a brewery in four and a half weeks. It was a lot more difficult than setting up the brewery in the first place as this time we had customers and staff to keep happy and any major delays would have put the business at serious risk. So, January and February were something of a stressful blur but we got through that and set about getting to grips with our new toy.
We received a Grant from the BIG2 Project funded from the ERDF as part of the European Structural and Investment Funds Growth Programme 2014-2020 which partly funded a new Centrifuge which we commissioned in Dec 2017. Since then, the machine has helped process over 175,000ltrs of beer, enabling us to employ new members of staff and break into new national and European markets.
