What have we been up to?

The new Welbeck Brewery has been going from strength to strength, now supplying around 60 pubs as a regular guest beer. We’re now on the SIBA DDS scheme which has opened the doors to many more pubs and we hope to step up production to supply to those pubs in our area which can use the SIBA list.

The Welbeck Farm Shop are now a superb destination for real ale drinkers, selling around 80 bottles of our bottle conditioned beers every week. They also have a cask on at the weekend which visitors can fill their 4-pint carry kegs with. There are always at least 4 different bottle conditioned ales available, giving you a great variety to choose from. Also available in the Farm Shop is a *NEW* Welbeck Abbey Brewery Real Ale Chutney. This is produced by ‘Poachers Preserves’ using seasonal apples and ‘Ernest George’ (4.2%), our deep ruby ale.

Now that we’re in full swing, brewery tours will be available for groups of 8 or more.

· When: Tues/Fri evenings 7:30pm – 9:00pm

· How much: £5/head (includes a free pint)

· How: Call Claire 01909 512539/email: (pre-booking is essential)

October sees not only the superb Steel City Festival, but also the Robin Hood beer festival in Nottingham. We’ve brewed ‘Spyke’s Gold’ especially for the week of the festival - a 4.0% English Pale Ale brewed with all English ingredients for a refreshingly British pint. Thanks to those CAMRA members who helped us brew it, and I hope it’s enjoyed at the festival.

Forthcoming events:

November: 26th-27th Christmas market at Welbeck where you’ll be able to buy some crafty Christmas gifts as well as sample the ware of Welbeck’s team of brewer, baker, cheesemaker, and chocolatier!

December: 4th 2-4pm Cheese and Beer tasting at the School of Artisan Food with Claire (brewer) and Lee-Anna (cheesemaker) To book, call the School of Artisan Food on 01909 523171.
