Tatton Brewery to close due to ‘unprecedented increases’

Cheshire’s Tatton Brewery will close this week due to “unprecedented increases in the cost of living, fuel prices and raw materials”.

The family-owned brewery, which is near to Tatton Park in Knutsford, announced that it would be closing its doors after 14 years on 29 February because remaining open was “no longer viable”.

Speaking candidly about its demise on social media, a spokesperson for the brewery explained how it had “come to the end of the road” and noted that its owner Gregg Sawyer would also take a step back due to “family responsibilities”.

The Tatton Brewery spokesperson revealed “After 14 years of brewing, we’ve come to the end of the road. With unprecedented increases in the cost of living, fuel prices, raw materials, and many other factors, coupled with Gregg wishing to take a step back from the business due to family responsibilities, it is no longer viable for us to carry on. With a heavy heart we’re sad to announce that Tatton Brewery will cease trading on Thursday 29th February.”

The spokesperson added: “We’ve had a good run, with great times, great staff, great customers – and of course great beer. We’re truly saddened to be sending out this statement, making us part of the current decline in the industry – but we’ve got to call it a day. Thanks to everyone who has supported us on our journey; we hope you’ve had some good times doing so. Get out there and get your last pints of Tatton Beer, raise a glass, and remember us fondly.”

Deliveries will continue to go out on 26 February through to 29 February and customers can still buy stock via the brewery webshop to collect from the brewery until it closes its doors on Thursday.
