There’s some big news on what’s been happening here at Quantock Brewery.
First, we would like to thank you all for your continued support over the years – we couldn’t have done it without you. Despite the impact of the pandemic, our sales have increased by over 100% over that period.
This meant that during 2021 our brewing plant reached full capacity. It was always recognised that further growth and profitability depended on significant new investment, but regrettably, this investment was not forthcoming from existing investors. To protect the brewery business and source the investment required, we put it up for sale.
After significant expressions of interest, we were thrilled to confirm that Quantock Brewery has acquired new partners, who have as much enthusiasm for the brewery as we have.
Our partners have invested in new brewing equipment which will increase our production capacity by four. This will enable us to service increasing customer demand and will elevate Quantock Brewery to a craft beer supplier of significance within the industry.
The success of QB has been based on several factors: constant innovation, consistency in our brewing process, a committed, passionate team, and a loyal customer base. With the new partners, we’ll be going from strength to strength.
Directors of Quantock Ales Ltd, issued a statement confirming their commitment to keeping the vibrant Quantock brand alive and growing.
Naidene and Katalin Urquhart said: “All the team at Quantock Brewery are very committed, which we feel is a vital component of any successful business. It’s one of the elements that attracted us to be part of its next phase of growth.
“New equipment will be installed by the end of March, increasing capacity by a factor of four to meet the obvious demand and help secure the brewery’s future.”
The brewery’s shop and taproom is operating as always, and its extensive range of beers are available from the usual outlets and online.
There are many more exciting things to come as we enter this next phase of Quantock Brewery. Look out for updates on this website!
