While a garden shed manufacturer working with a brewery seems like an unlikely collaboration, that’s exactly what’s happened in Leeds, West Yorkshire, where Tiger Sheds and Northern Monk Brewery have unveiled The Brewery Shed – the first of its kind.
The craft beer scene is bigger than ever. It’s big business, too. According to YouGov’s 2017 survey, the average craft beer drinker spends £897 in the pub every year, with cask ale lovers spending a whopping £1029.
The Brewery Shed features the latest in brewing technology – the Grainfather Connect All-in-One brewing system. The Grainfather can make up to 40 pints of beer in one batch. At around £18 per batch of ingredients, that’s just 45p a pint! In a nation where the average cost of a pint of beer is £3.60 and £4.15 for a pint of craft keg, The Brewery Shed can be a wise investment.
The Brewery Shed also functions as a bar, so when the beer is perfected it can be served straight to family, friends and new-found fans.
Jack Sutcliffe, Web Operations Manager at Tiger Sheds said, “According to CAMRA, the Campaign for Real Ale, the number of breweries in Britain has grown from just over 1,500 last year to more than 1,700 this year, displaying a growth of three new breweries a week. So that shows just how popular breweries are becoming.
“We wanted to create something unique – a brewery bar that you can set up in your garden. In The Brewery Shed, with the Grainfather, you can create exceptional craft beer at home to rival any brewery.”
Russell Bisset, Managing Director of Northern Monk Brewery, one of the UK’s leading craft breweries, said: “When we were approached by Tiger Sheds with an idea for The Brewery Shed, it’s fair to say our imaginations were sparked. The majority of us here at Northern Monk come from home brewing backgrounds and the idea of owning our own little brewery in our back garden would be a dream come true.”
Not only is The Brewery Shed available to buy on the Tiger Sheds website, but there is also a chance for a lucky brewer to win one! More information on the competition can be found on the Tiger Sheds Facebook page.
