The pubco has taken on the lease at the Railway Hotel at Belper, making it its second leased site with Star Pubs & Bars.
A joint £275,000 refurbishment will include a revamped garden space featuring beach huts and heating for all-year use and the installation of a new kitchen.
The pub will focus on cask and craft ales, with eight Lincoln Green beers available from a bar that can serve up to 20 products on tap.
Lincoln Green Brewing Company founder Anthony Hughes said a pub operation was an asset in a competitive brewing market.
He added: “As well as providing an outlet for our ales, they enable us to control quality and showcase our products to customers in the best possible condition.
The company estimates it could open 10 more pubs over the next decade.
“As a brewer, the leased model is ideal; it ties up minimum capital and leaves us free to invest in our brewery operations. Our partnership with Star works well. Their focus on investment and their flexibility on stocking are key.”
Brands give confidence
He said that Heineken’s product range complemented Lincoln Green.
“While we want to stock our own craft and cask ales, we also like to serve a couple of great nationally recognised brands alongside; they give credibility to the bar and confidence to less adventurous drinkers,” he added.
Star Pubs & Bars North Midlands operations director Alun Johnson spoke of his excitement of the new project.
He said: “Lincoln Green are first-class pub operators. Their brewing background gives each pub a USP and point of difference with customers. And their focus on product quality extends to every area of their pubs.”
