Melwood Latest Happenings

Time really flies when you are having fun!!!

So what’s been happening down Melwood Towers then?

Well Stan has been brewing like crazy that’s what! We have loads of stock again thanks to him. He brewed his first brew, Derby Pale 3.7 abv and we delivered it to The Belvedere Pub in Sugnall Street Liverpool City Centre last Thursday.  Wow it flew out!!! and now they have ordered another two casks for this week which will include the lovely Paleface 4.0 abv so hope that goes down well too.

Family news:

Our son John had his foot operation last week so he’s been off his feet and very grumpy because he can’t train or do anything until it heals.  He’s a footballer and he has had a metatarsal pinned with a screw to make the break he suffered last year heal finally. Poor lad then has the task of getting fit again for next season once his cast is off in 5 weeks.  He will be fine though and we are sure he’ll make it.  He has a fab attitude and will come back stronger and better than ever!

I’ve had my hair cut last week too so I feel a bit lightheaded as it’s shorter than I’ve had it for ages!

Tomorrow John, Mr Melwoodbeer, is having an operation too.  It’s a hernia repair but it means that I’ll have two ‘Johns’ infirm in the house and I’ll be running round after both of them! And doing my chores, and working and doing brewery lifting and deliveries!! Good job us women can multi-task eh!

Still I should have our daughter Charlotte’s help too when she’s not working herself of course.  No rest for us women! But I’ll need Stan’s help down the brewery helping to lift full casks etc.

So the Easter Break approaches and some welcome time off for those who don’t work for themselves.  We will be in the brewery though doing what we do and delivering to all those lovely pubs so that you can have a fabbo time.

Happy Easter all and keep drinking real ale and supporting our local pubs,

Melwood Back to Brewing, new business and an interesting event

Hello my friends!

Well we have been a hive of activity down at the brewery this last week.  The plumbing work has finished and we brewed on Sunday!!!  It was Stan’s first brew on the Melwood Beer Company’s system and he’s called this new beer ‘Derby Pale’.  It was a educational experience for Mr Melwood and I too because we had to learn how to use the newly plumbed in system.  Everything worked like a dream and we learned loads from Stan.

Two new snippets of new business also happened this week.

We delivered four beers to Liverpool One Bridewell on Saturday afternoon! They (and we) are hoping to become regular suppliers of our beer and we are really pleased to have hooked up with them.  The bar is great and they have a quirky restaurant which is housed in the former Police cells (if you’ve never been).  They hope to allocate a permanent hand pull to Melwood Beers so watch this space for developments!

We are also delivering to is The Belvedere in Sugnall Street this week!  We have wanted to get our beer in this fine establishment for a while now and it is finally happening on Thursday.  They are taking two of our beers, the malty Lionheart & the hoppy Sunshine Daydream, so check out The Belvedere next week to see our pump clips gracing their bar and enjoy the beer!

Finally hold the date 14th June 2014 because we will be hosting an event that day!  It will involve BEER & MUSIC – a match made in heaven!  Keep an eye on the website for more details in the coming weeks.

You will also find our beer at the usual fine establishments: The Blackburne, The Caledonia, The Grapes in Liverpool.  The Phoenix Inn, St Helens.

Also at Stamps and Stamps Too in Waterloo.
