Spadetown invests £800,000 in canning line and fermenters
Northern Ireland-based Spadetown Brewing Co has invested more than £800,000 to install a new canning line and three new fermenters.
The state of the art packaging line will be able to fill up to 2,200 cans per hour when fully operational.
Writing on Instagram, Spadetown said: “We’ve commissioned three new fermenters and installed a new in-house canning line in an £800,000 investment. And we’ve more new beers coming soon.”
“With additional capacity offered by our new fermenters and production efficiency improved by our new canning line, we’re equipped with the technology to capitalise on the significant opportunity Spadetown has in the market,” said Patrick McAliskey.
“The investment also solidifies our commitment to re-establishing and reinventing Lurgan’s rich brewing legacy; to preserve tradition, to create new employment opportunities and fertile ground for future investment in the local area, and to produce a premium export product that is unique to this place and its communities.”
Annie David, commercial director, said: “This latest investment sees the launch of three new limited edition brews which will double our product range, building upon the early success of our core IPA, pilsner and lager to offer an assorted drinks selection, including a non-alcoholic option, to every consumer.
“The new products also reflect the personality of Spadetown, which is unlike anything else available in the local market. It has an entirely unique, but also typically Northern Irish sensibility, which we believe is a huge selling point for the brand and will sustain its upward trajectory as we expand our presence and grow sales volumes through new listings in on- and off-trade establishments over the coming months.”
