4 months have passed since our last blog, Christmas is a distant memory and a new year has arrived…. what’s 2017 going to be like at Stannary……..
What happened to 2016?
The end to 2016 was super busy for us at Stannary, you guys have been drinking our beers in ever greater quantities, last summer we were brewing once or twice a week but come December we had to brew 3 times a week just to keep up with the demand from our thirsty craft beer fans. “Tap Thursdays” have been a great success they have become the highlight of our Stannary week, there’s always great banter and beer chat for those brave enough to stick around in the winter temperatures at the brewery. The Christmas party was an awesome night, crazy busy and the atmosphere in the courtyard was buzzing, the support you guys have shown never fails to amaze us. Cheers guys!
2017 so far
And onto 2017…… the brewing hasn’t stopped, you almost drank us dry during the festive season and January has been one mad brew fest. So far we’ve brewed #8 Pale (twice), Kolsch, Saison, Blonde and Sorachi Sunrise the tanks haven’t been empty! Since Christmas we’ve joined forces with 2 more local pubs, The Whitchurch Inn and The Trout & Tipple who have both taken ‘Batch #8 Pale Ale’ and we are told it’s proving rather popular, if you drink at these pubs and have another favourite Stannary beer, don’t forget to mention it to the Landlord.
New Beers in the pipeline
New Beers coming your way….. Over the next few months we are going to add a new range of beers to the Stannary Family, the old favourites will stick around and become our core range but we will gradually introduce bigger, bolder and hoppier beers than we have produced before as part of our ‘Hop Forward’ range… We are talking IPA’s, Black IPA’s, American Brown & Amber Ales and if you’re very lucky Double IPA’s!!…… These are the beers we love to drink and the beers that inspired us to start Stannary…. We’ll release trial versions of each beer direct from the taproom in order to get the very best feedback so make sure you visit us regularly to keep up with progress.
Events, event, events!
We are currently looking at dates for our weekender events during January, February and into Spring….. We can’t wait to get another event up and running and we are looking at a few possibilities to make our events bigger and better so make sure you are signed up to the mailing list and keep an eye out on our Facebook page for any news.
We’re getting bigger
And finally some super exciting news for us brewers…… We are just about to scale up our brewing kit!! Halleluiah – Our current kit produces between 250-300litres of fresh beer per brew and the new kit that is due to arrive over the next couple of months has the potential to produce over 800 litres – 800 litres of beer!!… who’s not excited by that?!!
All the best for 2017 craft beer fans!!
