Steve from Tee Time in Blackpool had chartered a coach and visited the brewery, I showed them round the brewery and explained what we do and why we do what we do. They also made sure to try most if not everyone of our beers on the bar.


Desperate times this week, I had misplaced our tippy skip doofers, these are super important as we use these to transport the spent grains to the cows, rather than opting for the wheel barrow approach to shift 628kg of spent grains we drafted in the big guns. It’s pretty handy having the odd JCB about.  


I’ve mostly retired from driving, however I do the odd night here and there just to keep my eye in, this was tonight’s little mission collecting milk from Lesmahagow then a shuffle truffle to Skelmersdale. Guess what year the tank on the back of the Volvo was manufactured and you can have a free beer on me 🍻


This week we ordered a further four DPV’s (Dual Purpose Vessels) for the brewery, after the addition of the previous four tanks at the beginning of March we are brewing at full capacity (again). We hope to take delivery of these tanks in the middle of August, these tanks will be installed up to the Tap Room to sit alongside these three dudes... 


Have a cracking week and I hope to see you down at the Tap Room 🤘🏼🤙🏼

Cheers Steve 🍻
