The brewery is still a small family business, which has created jobs for ten people since our start-up in 2007. The business was set up by Shane and Alison Parr, with lots of help from Iain and Anne Reid (Alison’s parents) and Innes Reid (Alison’s brother).
Our brewing plant capacity has been upgraded over the years and now is now 100 brewer’s barrels (28,800 pints) per week, which allows us to meet demand during peak periods. It consists of second hand vessels customised to form our liquor tanks and copper. Our open top fermenters and mash tun were custom built by Fabdec in Ellesmere. Most of the brewery parts and accessories, such as the sparge-arm condenser and automated cask-washer, were designed and built by our very own on-site engineer, Iain.
In 2013 we constructed a purpose built, energy efficient brew house, and although we have seen a lot of interest in our products since winning a national gold award at SIBA, we are firmly committed to not taking over the world. Our bottles are available further afield, but if you want to try our beer in cask, you should pop into our on-site bar and shop, or visit some of the many great pubs in the area.
