Three Tuns Brewery, reportedly the UK’s oldest brewer, is looking to secure about four more pubs within the next 18 months as it announces a c£500k brewery expansion, M&C Report has learnt.

Marketing and sales Manager Marc Brown told M&C Report​ that the Shropshire-based company is looking for “magnificent” freehold pubs that aren’t necessarily located near the Bishop’s Castle brewery.

“We are probably looking to get about four more pubs in the next 12 to 18 months,” Brown said. “We are fairly cash rich which is a good position to be in.”

The company currently operates one pub: the Bridge in Bishops Castle.

Three Tuns said it is running at 100% capacity and is set to increase its capacity from 26,000 to 40,000 pints per week by expanding into the foundations of the current site, which dates back to 1642.

Brown said: “Our beer is currently sold throughout the Welsh, Cheshire, Shropshire, Hereford, Worcestershire and Staffordshire areas. During 2013 this will almost certainly expand into much of England and parts of Scotland. Thereafter, we will be looking overseas.”
