Tim Chadwick, who began his fascination with the art of brewing beer whilst working for Linda and Stuart at the Prince of Wales, Foxfield, has taken his first steps in realising his dream to have his own brewery.
In a Unit in the new Goodacres Business Park, Tim has installed the 41/2 barrel brewing plant (together with empty casks,) that were previously owned by the Great Gable Brewery.
It is very early days yet and there is still much work to be done in fitting out the whole area but Tim has completed his first brews. There are four beers already underway and Tim is also planning to make a very hoppy beer using American hops called Castle Pale but has not brewed it yet (he will when his hops arrive).
Tim, who is also a part time teacher in Penrith, admits he is going to have a hectic few months to ensure that the Brewery takes off but we in Westmorland Branch wish him all the best in this exciting but demanding new venture.
It is thought that brewing is currently suspended.
