We have a new brewery arriving in three weeks and nowhere to set it up.
The dust settled pretty quickly after we were left out in the rain by that last guy and we started throwing out the feelers searching desperately for a new place in which to build our home.
Our first port of call was to call our brewery suppliers and beg them to delay our delivery. They came back and agreed not till ship it until March, giving us until April to find a place. We haven’t been in this game too long but that sure is a hell of a short time to do all of this; but hey, it's much MUCH longer than we had.
Right off the bat we started finding diamonds in the dust and falling in love with location after location. We entered into talks with landlords, met with the council and developers and all the while the clock was audibly ticking. Following the pattern of our current run of luck, everything adds up to diddly squat. We sit and deliberate our options at length, and come to the conclusion that we just don’t have the time to waste and have to get this show back on the road.
After this the clouds parted the angels sung and the sun shone down on us. A miracle presented itself! It came in the form of our current landlord, she’s decided to offer us the whole premises! Cue fist pumping, smiles and relief!
She's decided that she wants to help us out and had already been toying with the idea of moving her own business to a larger more truck friendly site anyway. Everyone is winning!
The game is back on! and now it's also a race against the clock. Time to start paperwork all over again… bollocks!
This Saturday, May 19th, we will officially be opening our brewery!! Our kitchen will be producing some scrumptious food, all 24 taps on our shiny new draft system will be pouring a multitude of beers and ciders and the sun will be shining down on us (hopefully). We hope you can come down and join for what is to be a memorable day, and just the first of many more to come as TRBC steps on down the road we began on so long ago. With that aside lets have a small rundown of our story so far:
As many of you may know we're always hard at work putting in upgrades down at the brewery. We’ve also got another big one on the way so we thought we’d fill you in on all the hard work that has been going on behind the scenes.
Noticed anything different recently? Yea, we didn’t think we’d fool you that easily! We’ve gone and gotten ourselves a new website.
What’s the difference? Well, it’s rather swanky for one! Everything is still pretty much the same behind the makeover, however, one major difference is that we now have a new online shop available for you to use, and it’s live right now!
