In the future, the site is also expected to offer a visitor centre with an events space for live music, parties, street food markets and corporate functions.
“The increased brewing and storage capabilities of the new site will give us the flexibility to produce and experiment further with flavour variation,” said Peter Mosley, Head brewer and director.
“We can create limited editions and seasonal brews, which will appeal to a wider audience of beer drinkers, while still meeting the demands for our core and already established beers.”
