Ilkey brewing in response to unprecedented demand for their beer have invested in a new cask filling machine that will soon see capacity increase by a staggering 33%, That is not all though because the brewer will also be adding a 40-barrell fermenter which will boost production even furthur by the end of the year.
Chris Ives, managing director, said: “It’s encouraging to see that interest in and demand for real ale is not wavering. Campaigns by groups like CAMRA continue to put the spotlight on the benefits of making and drinking cask ale and we’re 100% behind this.
“Our beers continue to be hand made from start to finish and this passion and dedication, I believe, can be tasted in every drop of our cask ale. In order to keep up with demand yet keep quality and flavour our top priority, we have made this investment in new equipment and hope it will enable us to continue growing.”
Its nice to see a good honest small brewery only getting more popular and increasing production.
