The Crafty Little Brewery realising its dream at the Humber Enterprise Park
The Crafty Little Brewery has begun trialling its own recipes
By Humber Enterprise Park | Posted: 26 Jul 2017
The financial incentives of business rates exemption and low rental costs offered by the Humber Enterprise Park in Brough have helped site tenant The Crafty Little Brewery to begin developing its own beer and ale recipes.
The family-run brewery reinvested the money it saved being at the Humber Enterprise Park on a brand-new pilot brewing kit, allowing joint-owners Dave Snaith and Nick Tyldsley to trial and improve their own homemade recipes.
Whereas a standard brewing kit typically produces a minimum brew of 400 litres and therefore creates a lot of wastage when trialling a new recipe, a pilot kit allows for brews of 30 litres. Dave and Nick are committed to only selling what they love, so the recipes have to be just right.
Dave and Nick had long dreamt of running their own brewery, and when one named Crystal was put up for sale, they took their chance. Crystal had been at the Humber Enterprise Park since 2014, and when Dave and Nick came to look at the premises, what they saw convinced them to buy out the business.
The duo have reported that the Humber Enterprise Park has proven to be the ‘perfect’ site to help get the Crafty Little Brewery off the ground.
On top of the enterprise zone’s significant financial incentives, they have found the site’s 24/7 security to be a real bonus that provides them with peace of mind knowing their assets are protected, whilst having an on site maintenance team has meant any issues they have had have been seen to immediately.
They even reported that other Humber Enterprise Park tenants have enquired about doing staff tours of the brewery.
