We currently have eight 2500 litre fermenting vessels with temperature and pressure control enabling perfect management of the fermenting process. 2016 also saw the installation of laboratory facilities. Every batch or beer is tested for alcohol content, bitterness and carbonation levels ensuring consistency and quality across our range.
