Sharp’s Brewery is rolling out a £5 million capital investment programme over the next two years as it continues to grow.
The investment from parent company, Molson Coors, will see an upgrade to the water treatment plant, additional fermentation vessels installed and a new packaging area.
Molson Coors acquired Sharp’s in February and the investment is evidence of its planned growth for the Rock-based brewer.
Sharp’s head brewer, Stuart Howe, commented: “This is great news for Sharp’s Brewery. Production capacity represents the biggest constraint to exceptional growth and this investment will serve two purposes: to meet immediate demand and support the growth of great beers that continue to capture the attention of drinkers up and down the land.”
Mark Hunter, CEO of Molson Coors (UK & Ireland), added: “The beer industry is under great strain with breweries closing down across the country but we envisage great things for Sharp’s Brewery. The team at Sharp’s have a passion for brewing beer of the highest quality. This is an exciting new chapter and this investment will help the Sharp’s brands realise their full potential.”
