We brewed more than a million litres of beer in 2016.
We clocked up a total of 10,169 hectolitres (1,016,900 litres) - an increase of 8% over 2015, made possible by a £175,000 investment in extra fermentation capacity, in spring last year.
65% of our 2016 production was cask conditioned beer. “Cask led the British brewing revolution. It is unique to Britain. Cask is this country’s craft” said owner Alex Brodie, “we believe in cask and we are investing in it”.
As part of our 'Cask Session Series' we’re planning a new cask beer a month throughout 2017, starting with January’s 'Session IPA' at 4.7%, which builds on the beer of the same name brewed in collaboration with a dozen craft brewers at our July beer festival – Northern Craft.
We put on Northern Craft twice a year, in March and July, at The Beer Hall – to celebrate innovative craft brewing in the north of Britain.
