Leading Welsh craft brewer to increase capacity sevenfold

Newport-based craft brewer Tiny Rebel has revealed major expansion plans that will see it increase its production capacity by seven times to brew over 12 million litres of beer annually.

As reported by Wales Online, Tiny Rebel has announced plans to build a new distribution centre which will both increase its production capacity and create 25 new jobs in the area.

The brewer secured funding amounting to £175,000 from Lloyds Commercial banking as part of a total £18 billion the bank is lending to UK businesses this year.

It has now submitted plans to redevelop land opposite its current brewing headquarters on the Wern Industrial Estate.

The 30,000sqft structure will be used for storage and distribution, allowing Tiny Rebel to create room and expand production at its brewery. It is aiming to boost volumes sevenfold to reach 12 million litres a year.

This, the company predicts, will generate £10 million in turnover and increase its global reach. Tiny Rebel already exports its beers to 36 countries globally and has recently began selling to markets including Korea and Japan.

The brewery was founded in 2012 by Brad Cummings and Gaz Williams, initially operating out of a garage. Back in 2016, the brewery secured funding of £2.6m to relocate its brewery to the current site.

Tiny Rebel operates two bars in Wales as well as one at its brewery, and in July last year, teamed up with west Walian distillery Dà Mhìle to release three gins based on the flavours found in its beers.

Co-founder Brad Cummings commented: “The British craft brewing industry has exploded in recent years thanks to growing demand in both local and overseas markets.
