The new Welbeck Abbey Brewery has been officially opened for real ale production. Bryan Jackson, Chairman of the East Midlands Development Agency, cut the red ribbon to open the newest addition to the rapidly growing Welbeck Project.
Directors Robin Brown and David Wickett said they were enthusiastic about the new venture, particularly as the real ale industry was booming.
Around 100 guests were given a tour of the micro brewery and invited to sample the first beer, aptly named First Brew,
Welbeck beers are made purely with Welbeck water, malted barley, hops, and their own fresh yeast and are designed by head brewer Claire Monk.
