Thank you all – Diolch Pawb

It’s been a funny old time for everyone but at last we are hoppy to announce we have opened our craft microbrewery!

We’d like to say a HUGE thank you to Dan and his fantastic crew at Gwilyn J Morris & Son, a local family building contractor who worked their magic at restoring the Old Farmhouse back to its former glory – it was a mammoth task but they completed it in under a year which was a huge achievement! Your sympathetic renovation has brought this beautiful building back to life, with thanks also to Ian Bartlett Planning and Architectural Services for making our restoration vision a reality – respecting this historic building and giving us the plans to regenerate it and to John Price our specialist local joiner who re-created all of the beautiful windows and doors which completed this renovation project.

Our thanks also must go to David and Rob Smith at Brewing Services Ltd, a father and son team of brewing specialists who have held our hands through the design and construction of the microbrewery and who have made sure we got everything right for our first brews! Thank you also to Mark Ruston and his team @PureweldStainless a British company specialising in the design and manufacture of brewing equipment, for putting together our brewery and installing it, and to @M&STransport, our local haulage business (who also happen to be family!) who delivered it safe and sound to us! Our thanks also must go to the local expertise of Brian Price (BP) Electrics, Jack Johnson and his team @The Little Green Planet, Paul Williams @Pumpaul Ltd and Phill Lamb Plumbing. We are blessed to be surrounded by such great specialists who have worked tirelessly to get our brewery ready for its first brews.

Our final thanks must go to the Welsh Government and Pembrokeshire Coast National Park Authority for supporting us financially in our vision. The National Park Authority through their Sustainable Development Fund supported us in setting up our initial trial pilot brewery in 2019 for the trialling of recipes, and gave us conservation advice to support us in our sustainable dream, including getting barn owl boxes and of course getting our bee hives up and running! The Welsh Government then supported us further to make our vision a reality by supporting the set-up of our full-scale microbrewery through The European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development – Food Business Investment Scheme. Without these grant this project would not have been possible – they have supported us in our bid to sustainably diversify our family farm, following the principles of circular economics which in turn will support our local economy.

Our vision was to sustainably diversify our family farm, to share with you our knowledge of sustainable farming and food production, and to give you ales inspired and infused with flavours from our beautiful St Davids peninsula. We could not have done this without the expertise and support of so many, those named above and many more but not least our family – we are eternally grateful to you all, Diolch!

 

THANK YOU
