    Default New Breweries

    There seems to be an infinate number of microbreweries springing up everywhere including some in the unlikeliest of places that I thought it would be useful to have a thread for people to add any new ones that come to light.

    I have just received notification of a new Brewery called Redemption based in the real ale desert of Tottenham - the area doesn't have a decent pub for miles around! Looks like they have just managed their first brew - this is the link http://urbanbrewer.blogspot.com/


    For you Kentish people (like myself), Moodleys based in Tunbridge Wells is another new one to watch out for http://www.moodleys.co.uk/

    As one of the 3 brews is an Original Mild, maybe Soup Dragon will be visiting?

    Not a brewery as such, not yet anyhow, but my 'spiritual' local is experimenting with home-brews. The landlord and his mate have just produced their second, to be known as 'Gussage Gold'. I tried it after the first drop, a dark amber ale, 6.4, clear, but clearly unfinished, I could, would have, happily have drunk it then. The finished product goes on sale tomorrow,at 4.9 coinciding with Burn Night, which I will be attending.
    The first brew was on sale just before Christmas, a good effort at a middle-of-the-road porter. Known as Gussage Porter it was either 4.5 or 4.9, memory fails me as to which, and well-drinkable. I should know as I probably shifted half a gallon of the stuff.
    For sure, a long way to go, but the intent is there. Here's to Burns Night, Drambuie cream pancakes, Gussage Gold and all......The choice now is ESB, Old Peculiar or the Beast...Oh happy day..........

    This years (2010) Good Beer Guide has a handy list of 25 breweries that were going to start up from Sept09 onwards. The only one I've come across so far is the Liverpool Organic Brewery which makes a very pleasant easy drinking Golden Ale style Pale Ale (4%). Their website is here but it's very unilluminating, there are a few details on this site.

    I'll post the full GBG list if anyone thinks it may be useful to them.

    that strike people's kneeses,
    Covid19! is one by name
    It comes from the East
    Packed in bladders of yeast
    So the Chinese must take half the blame.

    The new Joules Brewery in Market Drayton is well underway , they are just waiting for a change in the weather so they can get on with the build . They are aiming for 300 barrels a week . They also own 15 pubs in Shropshire/Staffs which they are restoring to original plans where possible . Sounds good .

    Now that does sound exciting Oggwyn ( takes alot to do that these days ) Not only real ale but the original plans sounds great.To many of our pubs now have that openplan, all inclusive great barn of a place feel about them. Must do some checking up on that.
    Looked at their web page ,I wish they would buy a few pubs in my area. I know the Bricklayer Arms ,Salop I lived at the opposite end of the street when a teenager.Last visited about 4 years ago when it appeared to be in the doldrums.

    Hey Roger, great thread! However, it does sound rather familiar. The last brewery that I discovered was the Ilkley Brewery http:// www.ilkleybrewery.co.uk They've only been brewing since June, but won their first regional SIBA award in November for their 'Mary Jane' brew. I've enjoyed all of their beers I've tried so far. One to watch out for.

    I found a beer from a brewery I hadnít heard of before over the weekend, Wild Hop Brewery O.P.A. I canít find out much about this other than a suggestion on Stonchís Beer Blog that the brewery may have closed in 2007 and that Daleside are now brewing under that name.
