A crane lifts heavy vessels into Greene King as part of the Bury St Edmunds £750,000 investment in a new ‘innovation’ brewhouse.
Greene King says the new brewhouse, which will open on November 20, will allow it to draw on more than 200 years brewing experience, while experimenting with a range of new ingredients, yeasts, styles and flavours to enable more exploration into craft beer styles.
A small packaging area for both the on-trade and off-trade, wil also form part of the new brewhouse.
Chris Houlton, Managing Director of Greene King Brewing & Brands, said: “This is an incredibly exciting time for the business; the new brewery is a perfect opportunity for us to experiment and to showcase our brewing expertise.
“We are listening to our customers and investing in innovation.
“It is also a real chance to put into practice some of the ideas we have had before but until now have not been able to turn into reality.
“It is the start of an exciting new chapter for our business.
“We have some exciting plans and brews ready for the opening of the new brewhouse, so watch this space.”
The first beers crafted at the new ‘innovation’ brewhouse are expected to be available from early next year.
