Welsh brewer and operator Tiny Rebel has announced it will be moving part of the business into a new site to accommodate its growing team and equipment.

In a post on its website, the company claimed that since its launch in 2012, Tiny Rebel had been organically growing at no less than 50% year on year.

Tiny Rebel said it purchased a 60,000sq ft site directly opposite its existing brewery in Rogerstone, south Wales, in September 2017 to ensure it had space to grow into.

Future plans

It plans to move the whole of its back office and the entire warehouse into the new site in a bid to give the brewers more space.

The new four-storey office will have a games room and rooftop bar with terrace. All finished beer will be stored in its fully refrigerated warehouse, meaning its whole stock is 100% chilled.

The brewer operator also said: “Back over in the brewery, we will be reclaiming the whole of the warehouse and, if you’ve ever been on one of the tours we provide, you know how much space that takes up.

“With all this extra room going straight to brewing and packaging, we are upping our capacity again and purchasing a new canning line capable of packaging 15,000 cans per hour into multiple-pack types. The end result will give us the capacity to brew 21,120,000 pints of beer in the coming years.”

Capital injection

The business also said it had reinvested every pound it could spare to grow. However, Tiny Rebel has also had a capital injection from Lloyds Bank for the past three years, lending the company the capital it needed for its headquarters, taproom, brewing kit, packaging lines and fermenters.

Tiny Rebel outlined its wish list and called for more investment. It said: “This backing has supported the core of our business but there’s a whole heap of other fun stuff that we would love to do but don’t have the capital to do so at the moment.

“If you’ve ever thought it would be cool if we had a taproom in London and Manchester, or that you love our gin and wish we did a rum or whisky distilled right here at the brewery, you’re not alone.

“How does cider made from our grown apples sound? Picture yourself staying at the Tiny Rebel hotel wearing your Tiny Rebel pyjamas, drinking a Tiny Rebel nitro cold brew coffee. Excited yet?”
