Hare Brewery was officially opened by Tarquin McDonald chief executive of Bath Rugby. To mark the occasion a bronze hare statue, crafted by Cornish artist Hamish Mackie, was unveiled. The existing Bath Ales headquarters and distribution centre (Hare House) was converted to accommodate the new four vessel brewery. The multi-million-pound investment project will enable Bath Ales to produce 50,000 brewers’ barrels of beer – close to 14.5m pints a year.
After a very busy year and the prospect of an even busier one ahead we took time to relax with our friends at Smith Maloney Architects; Studio Lime and RPA at Bristol Old Vic.
