As part of our planning, we knew that we needed a bigger building. Our converted mushroom shed wouldn’t be big enough to hold the new kit, let alone anything else. Fortunately, there was a derelict barn about 20 meters from our current building, and the land owner thought it would be a wonderful idea to bring new life to it with a new brewery. We did think about some other locations on the site, but this was our first choice from when we first started our planning. So in went the planning application, and our funding application, and the wait began.
