The brewery was started in 2011 by Lee Byatt, owner/head brewer. His wife Shelley and co-director joined in 2014, to help with the increased work load. We haven’t looked back since. We work well together, as we have different skills to offer the business. We have grown the business and moved into new larger premises in 2016 to create a 12 barrel brewery and brewhouse bar. This was a huge undertaking, but being in our new home makes all the hard work worth it.
Our aim is to produce great tasting, great quality beer to pubs and clubs within the region. We want to be the brewer of choice where publicans’ have the freedom to use us. So as well as producing great, quaffable beer, our pricing must be competitive and our service levels have to be the best they possibly can. We believe in growth at a reasonable rate to make sure none of the above is compromised.
We have a 12 barrel brew length and brew three times per week. We continue to add to our customer base each week and have increased our capacity to suit. It is not just the production of beer that has to be considered, but also having a fermenting vessel available and the right number of casks to allow for turnaround time in trade and have enough to rack future brews, and so we find ourselves taking on more and more casks to cope with the growing demand.
