There is more good news for those who enjoy beers in the north west area of Hampshire.
Plans are progressing for a small ‘nano-brewery’ with a tasting room at Haydown Farm at East Cholderton, near Thruxton just a few miles to the west of Andover, although opening hours will be very limited.
Breach Farm Brewing produce a range of “Bold and Different” beers, “brewed in an American style”.
Breach Farm Brewing say:
“The brewery/tasting room will have very limited hours and because of our small size will not be selling to pubs and other retailers. We must rely on local customers and direct sales.
We aim to produce a cozy space that will fit in well with our rural community and we will landscape and beautify the surrounding yard…
And as you know from the past, a portion of all proceeds will support local charities. Please plan to walk, hike or cycle over when we open in (fingers crossed) mid October.”
Under the ownership of Tim Hartigan Breach Farm Brewing had been located in Dummer near Basingstoke producing a limited range of tasty artisanal craft beers each with their own distinctive character – a real craft/cottage industry.
Small enterprises like this add value to the traditional character of our rural communities and help retain the working heritage of our countryside.
A licence application has been submitted for Haydown Farm, Wiremead Lane, East Cholderton, Andover SP11 8LR.
Being a nano-brewery, output is very limited and hours are extremely limited. Planned opening hours are believed to be:
Thursday 4.00pm – 8.00pm;
Friday 4.00pm – 9.00pm;
Saturday noon – 9.00pm;
Sunday 1.00pm – 6.00pm.
