Good Things Brewing Co. nears end of major renovation

UK brewer Good Things Brewing Co. is raising a glass as it nears the completion of a £750,000 revamp.

The Sussex-based brew house is approaching the end of its latest expansion phase to renovate a 17th-century barn into a new brewing complex, wihch will allow it to produce up to half a million litres per year.

This latest phase of development will allow it to become a "closed loop brewery", meaning it is fully sustainable. It will be completely powered by solar panels, water for its brews will come from an on-site well, and spent grain will be dried (using green energy) and given to a nearby mill which produces '00' grade flour that is higher in protein and fibre.

The year-long project has also seen the opening of an on-site brewery tap, which served its first pint on 7 February as punters gathered around firepits at its countryside location.

It marked the occasion with the creation of a limited-edition beer in collaboration with Manchester's Marble Brewery.

Chris Drummond, Good Things Brewing Co. co-founder, said: "It has been an epic journey so far and we’re committed to our vision of brewing the beer we love, that’s better for the world we love.

"Good Things is now primed and ready for next chapter and we have an unbeatable team in place that will help crank things up a notch and take our beer - and our vision - to more people."

The brewery currently produces a core range of four craft beers: a pilsner, a pale ale, an IPA and a low-ABV pale, available in can and keg. It also has a monthly range of experimental and classic limited-edition brews, plus collaboration projects with other UK breweries.
