Two weeks to go

It's only two weeks to go until the Welbeck Abbey Brewery equiment is installed, which means the day that our new beer reaches you is getting very close indeed!

In the middle of The Welbeck Abbey Estate we are setting up a traditional microbrewery - read the info on the right bar to find out a little about your new local brewery. The building project started in the winter, and after a few months of dealing with rather a lot of snow and a rotten roof, it’s almost complete.

Here are a few pictures of the building now it’s recognisable!

There are two halves to the brewery, at the back of one is the cold store where all our beer will be stored in casks until we whisk it off to your pub in our van. This picture shows the cold store from the front, my office will be in the front space and we’ll use that big area for all the deliveries.

The other half is the brew house and conditioning tanks where we’ll be making the beer and putting it in to casks. You can see the fermenting room taking shape here, and the mezzanine floor which we’ll use to store our hops and malt.

This is the view from the back of the brewery looking out. You can see the floor of the mezzanine has been built, and the hand rail has been put on.

Lots more building to do, and all the equipment to put in. Keep an eye on the Facebook site for updates.
