BusinessUncategorizedCOVID – 19 (updated 24th March)

March 17, 2020by Eight6

We are all part of strange times at the moment with the virus that has taken hold of the whole world.

For us, to go from a massive high point last week of winning a national award to the current status of where we all find ourselves has been a massive swing of emotions. Despite this we are still working as normal at the brewery with a slight reduction in production (increase in ping pong match time!).

At present we are still taking trade orders and delivering as normal, but we will review this daily.

We planned to open our Friday evening taproom this week as normal but after yesterday’s announcement by the Government we have decided to close our Friday evening taproom for the foreseeable future.

We are however still open for can off-sales between 10am to 4pm, Monday to Friday. This will be reviewed on a daily basis also.

***** update 24th March *****

Following the announcement by the government yesterday of increased closures to combat the outbreak of Covid 19 we’ve taken some further steps to increase protection of our business and employees:

1. No more collections to be made from the brewery, do not attempt to visit the brewery under any circumstances.

2. Any orders currently placed with a ‘collection from brewery’ selected will be delivered by courier – DO NOT ATTEMPT TO COLLECT FROM BREWERY!

3. We are continuing with web orders at the moment with orders being placed before 12pm being dispatched the same day with free delivery on 12 cans or more. Orders are being dispatched Monday to Thursday. Click the link to order our beers:

Please stay at home and keep your loved ones safe.

    Ordered some cans from you the other day and was amazed how good the beer tasted. Being a pub-goer and not drunking much beer at home, I have (for no good reason) avoided cans in supermarkets. The Layer Cake was particularly good. I hope to order some more next week. Are you likely to have any Corbel in cans soon?

    Regards and thank you.

    Do you deliver to West Moors and if so what is the minimum order?
    Not familiar with your beers so wondering if you supply a selection of pale ales in cans to private non business customers

    Hi Simon, Thanks very much and great to hear you enjoyed the beers! Unfortunately there won’t be any cans of Corbel in the very near future.
