Award-winning beers and brands
Brentwood Brewing Company and Billericay Brewing Company have decided to work more closely together. Whilst this informal, friendly arrangement will see the two breweries working in co-operation with each other, they will continue to operate as separate companies, each retaining their own identity, highly regarded, popular, award-winning beers and brands.
Despite being commercial rivals, a friendly relationship has existed between Brentwood Brewing Company and Billericay Brewing Company for some years. The two Essex craft breweries aim to build on this neighbourly relationship, to their mutual benefit.
For example, sharing deliveries will benefit both companies by not only reducing costs but their carbon footprints too.
Trevor Jeffery, Director of Billericay Brewing Company said: “We are now at full capacity at Billericay Brewery and struggling to keep up with demand, so it will be a great move for us to brew our best-selling beers at the larger Brentwood Brewery.
“Shifting this production will also give us more space at Billericay and so we will be able to serve even more people at our popular micro-pub and brewery every weekend.”
The first batch of Billericay Brewing Company beer, Billericay Dickie 4.2% ABV (a balanced amber ale with biscuit notes), has already been brewed at Brentwood.
Bottles of popular Brentwood beers, like Brentwood Gold 4.3% ABV, will continue to be available at Billericay Brewery in their Essex Beer Shop. Billericay Brewery’s onsite bar, micro-pub and shop are just off Billericay High Street in Chapel Street.
To celebrate this new arrangement, the two local breweries are planning a collaboration brew which will be officially launched at Billericay Brewery’s Spring Beer Festival which runs from 21st – 24th March.
