Refurbishment of Hare House to provide a new brewery for Bath Ales
Reconfiguration of an existing two storey distribution warehouse to provide a new brewery; visitor experience and brewery support accommodation.
The state-of-the-art new brewery – which is set to double the available brewing capacity – will produce up to 50,000 brewers’ barrels which equates to more than 14.5 million pints.
The new-look brewery will be versatile and provide the most sophisticated and technologically advanced brewing and packaging facilities in the Southwest; giving Bath Ales the opportunity to create new beer styles in cask, keg, and bottles. The plans include a lauter tun, which for the first time will give Bath Ales the capability to brew traditional continental style lagers alongside its much-loved range of premium ales.
Internationally renowned Musk Engineering Ltd has been selected to build the new brewery at the existing headquarters in Warmley, between Bath and Bristol. The leading British company will be tasked with the fitting and installation of the new four-vessel brew house at the newly titled ‘Hare Brewery.’
In addition to converting existing office accommodation to provide a new two double-height Brewhouse; visitor facilities including a tasting bar; a laboratory and brewery staff facilities will be created.
New bottling and canning facilities will also form part of future expansion plans.
