Owner Ben Cleary recently said: “When our first batch of brews was released it was the first Friday of lockdown one.

“They were ready to go to wholesale but then got cancelled so we were left in a sticky situation.

"We did alright eventually through lockdown. We managed to set up a website and did well through that.

"By September of 2020 we had eight European customers who all contacted us from Tap Room.

"Tap Room can be a dangerous beast for many but it's worked really well for us. We got to a point in October where 60-70% of our beer was going to Europe."
