Expansion of brewery as it celebrates its third birthday
Towcester Mill Brewery has a double celebration this week as it expands its brewing capability at the same time as celebrating its third anniversary.
Recent successes across its business in the tap room, shop, pub and free trade has meant that many more people are drinking a lot more beer! And, as a result, to ensure the brewery keeps on top of customer demand, it has this week installed an additional fermenting vessel.
“It’s incredibly exciting,” explained director, John Evans. “In exactly the same week as the tap room opened three years ago, we find ourselves having to install this additional fermenting vessel which will help us increase the volumes of beer produced, thus fulfilling demand in the shop and tap room. A fermenting vessel is the container where the sweet liquid called wort is fermented with yeast to make the beer. We’re delighted that everyone seems to be enjoying our beer so much to enable us to expand in this way.”
And, on Saturday 20 May, the brewery will be celebrating its third anniversary with a BBQ, live music and brewery tours.
“We can’t believe how fast time has flown,” added director, David Williams. “We have brewed around 500 brews in those three years, opened our new shop at Bell Plantation Garden Centre and our new pub The Royal Oak at Naseby. Our customers have become part of our extended family so we will be having a BBQ from 3pm and live music from the Neggly Gents from 4pm on Saturday 20 May to celebrate.”
There are also a few spaces still available on a brewery tour at 3pm that afternoon for anyone who wants to hear from director, Ray Hunt, on how the perfect pint is brewed. All tours cost £10 a head and include a free pint or beer tapas board which holds three thirds of a pint. To book tickets please visit www.ticketsource.co.uk/towcester-mill-brewery.
Come along and see us on Saturday 20 May and join in the celebrations!
