Richard Bailey, CEO of Daniel Thwaites announced the move from Blackburn where the brewery has been based for over 200 years. Mr Bailey said:
“Thwaites’ new brewery and head office will be located on the A59, at the foot of the Ribble Valley and will be very accessible for people coming to visit us. Our investment in the new brewery will allow us to brew a full range of our cask, seasonal and craft ales and will allow our brewers and team to be completely focused on the quality and consistency of our beers. We remain committed to safeguarding our brewing heritage, and newer, more efficient and more flexible equipment will help our team to continue to brew our old friends, but also to develop new and interesting beers.”
Steve Magnall, Managing Director of Thwaites Beer Co said, “This is great news for Thwaites, our customers and our drinkers who enjoy our beers, as it signifies the next chapter in our story. We will now be working hard to ensure a seamless transition to our new site at Sykes Holt and we cannot wait to brew that first beer in the new brewery”.
