A brewery in Grantham has relocated to larger premises to allow its team to brew more beer.

Oldershaw Brewery held its official opening at its new location in Barkston Heath last month, with special guest Councillor Ian Stokes invited to cut the ribbon in his role as Mayor of Grantham.

As part of the business’s expansion, a new beer fermenting vessel has been installed which increases the brewery’s capacity by over 5,000 pints a week. A new member of staff has also been taken on.

Oldershaw managing partner Kathy Britton said: “The people and pubs of Grantham have been so supportive of us, it’s thanks to them that we have been able to expand and the old mushroom farm at Barkston Heath was just perfect.

“It is just the right space, the same water source as we were on previously and a lovely location.”

Coun Stokes, whose mayorship ended a fortnight ago, said: “I am delighted to be able to support a growing local business. In these difficult times it is great to see a Grantham business doing so well.”

Oldershaw Brewery is owned and run by Kathy and Tim Britton. It has been brewing beer since 1997 and produces a number of prize-winning beers.
