A SMALL batch brewery team from Stroud are celebrating their move to a new premises.
The Fresh Standard Brew Company have the keys to their new site in Nailsworth, from where they plan to create a taproom, a bonded warehouse, and a shop.
The team have been creating small batch, seasonal beer, for their customers in Stroud since December 2020.
Starting out from a base near Minchinhampton, they firstly offered online delivery only, then scaled up distribution to hand-pumps in selected pubs.
Then, when a unit in Merretts Mill, Nailsworth became vacant, they decided to scale things up again.
“We are initially planning to create a bonded warehouse, taproom and shop with plans to bring full production on site as soon as possible,” said brewing director Richard Taylor.
“All things running to plan, we hope to open the taproom to the public on March 5, from 2pm – 9pm, but the usual hours will be Friday and Saturday 2pm till 9pm, depending on our market commitments.
“Throughout the week we will be open for off sales from 10am until 5pm.
“The address is unit 25 Merretts Mill estate, GL5 5EX, and is accessible from the 40, 63 and 165 bus routes as well as via a path straight in front of the unit onto the Nailsworth to Stonehouse cycle track.”
Richard added: “Our philosophy is to create simple, low intervention beers, using limited but best quality ingredients and get them to the drinker in as fresh a state possible.”
He previously brewed at Stroud Brewery and Cheltenham’s Battledown Brewing Co.
