In five years, Tiny Rebel has gone from home brewing in a garage to a purpose-built £2.6m facility in Newport.
The 30,000 sq ft site, opening at the start of next month, will have the capacity to produce five million litres of beer annually – that’s almost nine million pints.
The team has been quick to monopolise on the unquenchable thirst for beer that has gripped the nation, increasing its capacity to cater to its 30 export markets and grow its global presence. The fully operational bar and kitchen on site will serve a range of menus including Sunday lunch as well as catering for private functions, beer festivals (why, of course), pop-ups and live music
‘As our beers grew in popularity, we were desperate for additional capacity in both brewing and packaging,’ co-founder, Gazz Williams, said. ‘The new site is going to enable us to do even more to support the growing demand for Tiny Rebel beer, both at home and abroad.’
‘When it comes to the location of the site, Newport is our home and where Tiny Rebel all began – so it is only right that we invest in the city as we grow our business,’ fellow co-founder Brad Cummings added.
‘What was most important to us was to create a space for people to enjoy what Tiny Rebel represents. But we’ll also be able to increase the breadth of what we can produce and support continued growth from our new home.’
Craig Charles of Red Dwarf fame will be on hand to help the guys open the brewery in style with a DJ set on 1 July.
