St Austell: demand for Tribute on the rise

Cornish brewer and pub operator St Austell is to brew for 24 hours a day for the first time in its 160-year history.

 

An investment of £550,000 has been made to raise brewing capacity from 100,000 to 150,000 pints a day and facilitate round-the-clock brewing, 80% of which will be for flagship brand Tribute. The cash injection involved the installation of bespoke new equipment including a malt mill, grist case and mash tun.

 

It was the final stage of a multi-million pound investment over recent years.

 

Head brewer Roger Ryman said: "This latest investment assures our future as an independent brewer of cask ales for another generation. Walter Hicks, who built our brewery in 1893, would be proud to see how we have progressed and innovated."
