Most of you will have seen that we have planned (at least for the last few months) to substantially grow the brewery. The challenges we have faced are very similar to the likes of other business that have been fortunate enough to grow quickly. Put simply we cannot produce enough, and the good news is that (we have finally!) secured the necessary finance to grow in a meaningful way.
This means that we will be able to install a state of the art 24,000 litre capacity brewery in our new home in Capel, near Dorking. It also includes the less sexy things like advanced chillers, large cold rooms, an extra van, and a chunk of working capital. The nemesis of any growing business!! With this we can continue to supply our growing customer base across cask, keg and 330ml can. We also hope to install a tap room so our followers can come and enjoy a beer with us direct from the tanks 🙂
In addition, we are delighted to announce our new partnership with the Royal Navy and Royal Marines Charity for one of the first new Naval Beers in over 40 years; – “Defaulters Pale”. Over 5% of all sales will go directly to support servicemen and women and their families. “Defaulters Pale” is named after crimes or misdemeanours (like turning up late to work) conducted by sailors. We hope this will be a great opportunity to work together and inject a bit of humour into what can be a very hard job.
In the meantime we plan to have our first brew on October 1st on our nice shiny new kit in Oct! Please feel free to pop round to our existing site by Dorking West Station in the meantime. We are open Mon – Fri -0900 – 1600 and you can buy our cans or take away beer containers to enjoy at home. Just give us a call first!
