Pulling in beer lovers in Workington
Last updated at 15:45, Friday, 07 March 2014
Workington's only brewery will allow people behind the scenes for the first time this month.
Mitchell Krause Brewing, at Calva Farm, Seaton, will start guided tours so that people can see the process behind the beers.
Owner Graeme Mitchell, 46, of Calva Brow, converted a tractor shed at his parents’ farm into the micro brewery, which is the first to operate since the old Workington Brewery on Ladies Walk closed more than two decades ago.
The three Continental-style lagers being brewed there are a Czech Pilsner, American Pale Ale and Bavarian Hefe Weiss. They were previously brewed in Cheshire.
He has commissioned a bar from Workington’s Chambers joinery firm so people can sample his ales.
Mr Mitchell said: “The bar has been put in to support the tours and is not as a commercial pub. A lot of people only think that brewing is about bitter and lager. Through the tours I hope to broaden people’s ideas.”
