HAVE A COOL YULE!!!
As we approach the season’s festivities it will hopefully be a time for some rest and relaxation for Melwood after two full years in existence. The company was established and we acquired our current premises in November 2012 (although we didn’t start brewing until March 2013) but it has been all go for us for the last two years.
We have been growing and developing in all this time and we feel that we will start 2015 with a clear vision for how we want to go forward. There will be a few exciting developments which we will announce as the year progresses and we will be working even harder to produce the kind of ales you want to drink.
In the meantime we thank all our loyal customers, (with a special thank you to Laura at The Caledonia *special thanks*) for all your business throughout this year. We hope you have a peaceful (but profitable) Yuletide and a Happy New Year.
To all you fantastic real ale drinkers out there who are supporting us and our independent pubs and restaurants with your discerning tastes by buying our ales and enjoying them; we hope that you have a great time enjoying them further over the festive period and have a Happy New Year!
And to Stan Shaw, our Master brewer; you have made our brewery work so much better with your skills and engineer-genius brain that we cannot thank you enough for everything you have done. We hope to develop our beers with you in 2015 and beyond. Thank you Stan!
With love and thanks,
Julie & John xx
