Welsh brewer expands operation

31st July, 2012 by Martin Crummy

The Otley Brewing Company has purchased a new, larger unit for its brewery to match the surge in customer demand for its cask ales and bottled beers.

The new 5,500 sq ft unit is on the Albion Industrial Estate in Cilfynydd, on the site of the existing brewery.

The larger premises offers twice as much space as the previous one and will be home for more office space, a front of house shop and will also see the return of the brewery’s in-house bottling facility which will process around 1,500 bottles a week.

The new brewery will also open its doors to the public for tours and tasting sessions.

Managing director of the Otley Brewing Company, Nick Otley, said: “This is an exciting time for us at the brewery. We’ve grown so much since first setting up in 2005 and as the demand for our products has significantly grown, moving to larger premises was a natural step for us.

“The new front of house shop will house an extensive range of real ales from some of our favourite breweries across the UK and will certainly be the first point of call for real ale enthusiasts.

“The decision to introduce brewery tours will help us showcase what we have on offer to customers and those interested in beer. We think it’s important we make our brewing methods and processes visible to show how we brew quality ales and it’s a service we’ve been planning to do for a while as a response to customer feedback.”
