Happy Birthday

Posted on 05/14/13 No Comments

This June will see us celebrating our 5th Birthday.  It seems like only five minutes ago that we sat around the kitchen table trying to decide whether it would be a viable shot to start our own brewery.  That was mid 2007; 12 months later, on 20th June 2008, The Backyard Brewhouse launched on the world with our first beer, Nipin, at the Stafford Beer Festival.

Since then the brewery has gone from strength to strength, seeing an average annual increase in production over 60% year on year; Producing in  our first week 7.6 brewers barrels or 2,100 pints, to an average today of 40 brewers barrels or 11,500 pints a week.

To celebrate our birthday, we will be holding a party at our 1st pub, The Fountain, on 22nd June where you will be met by the Landlord, John, and his warm hospitality, enjoy some of our great ale and some of Johns wonderful home cooked food.  From the pub will be running a number of mini bus trips to the brewery for a short tour to see how we have grown and get a sample of one of our beers that may not be available at the Fountain.

We will release further details of the event plans in the coming week, but, in the meam time be sure to get the 22nd June 2013 booked in your diary.
