Tiny Rebel brewery reveals new site plans to support growth

Award-winning brewery, Tiny Rebel, have announced plans for a new brewery and community space in Newport, Wales.

The new premises is set to mark the start of a significant expansion that will increase their capacity more than five-fold.

Since the Welsh brewery was started four years ago by co-founders Brad Cummings and Gazz Williams, Tiny Rebel has rapidly grown in popularity and acclaim.

As well as opening two Urban Tap House pubs in Cardiff and Newport, the brewery has released an extensive list of limited edition beers alongside a strong-performing core range which includes their Welsh red ale, Cwtch – the Champion Beer of Britain 2015.

Due to the popularity of its beers, Tiny Rebel has found itself at full capacity, spurring on plans for larger brewing facilities to meet in increasing demand. Designed by architects Powell Dobson, and managed by WPM Planning and Development, the new site will cover nearly 30,000 square feet and will include a bar and event space as well capacity for bottling and canning lines. It will also have significantly increased storage which will allow for a large increase in production.

In total, the new site allows for the business to expand capacity to 5 million litres annually – nearly 9 million pints.

Commenting on developments, Brad Cummings, co-founder, said: “Tiny Rebel Brewery started life in a garage, born out of our passion for flavoursome, drinkable beers. Four years later, the business is making dramatic progress. We’ve established ourselves with award-winning brews like Cwtch and built a growing community of Tiny Rebel fans.

“This £2.6m relocation and expansion is a project that we’ve been looking at for the past 24 months and one that all of the Tiny Rebel team have put their heart and soul in to making it happen.  As we were desperate for additional capacity in both brewing and packaging this will enable us to do even more to support the growing demand for Tiny Rebel beer both at home and abroad.”

Chris Jefford, of Powell Dobson, added: “It is incredibly exciting to be working with such a passionate brewer. Tiny Rebel’s commitment to achieving a high quality piece of design and an exciting place for staff to work and for the public to visit is extremely rare.”
