Barnaby’s Brewhouse aims to be a completely sustainable business using renewable energy sources and repurposing or reusing all waste products.

The Old Stable block on Hole Farm is the perfect location for our organic brewery project. We are building the plant from second hand and reclaimed materials (largely from other breweries or dairies) and are developing a range of innovative process controls to manage brewing, fermentation and conditioning.

The site has a large solar panel farm and we are making the brewhouse as energy efficient as possible. We are also filtering our wastewater through a modular reed bed system before it is sprayed onto the fields.

By becoming part of the local eco-system at Riverford, it has also encouraged us to be organic and by using spring water from Riverford Organic Farm means we get exactly the right mineral profile for delicately flavoured lagers.

 

 

Our spent grain is fed directly to the Riverford Farm dairy cattle (which apparently helps to reduce methane emissions!) and our used hops are composted. The yeast slurry is either re-pitched or fed to pigs.

We are now certified organic by the Soil Association. We use organic malt and hops sourced in the UK and our water comes from a natural spring in the middle of organic farmland.

We propagate our own yeast using organic malt extract. We don’t use any animal products to fine the beers as they are conditioned over time and then cold filtered – so our lagers are suitable for vegans too!

Tim Stacey
Tim Stacey Director
Tim took little persuading to join Barnaby as an equal partner in the business. His love of both engineering and brewing made the brewery a perfect career move! Since starting the business Tim has taught himself stainless steel welding and has built the Brewhouse plant which is used to produce Barnaby’s Brewhouse’s distinctive range of beers. This has been done…

Barnaby HarrisDirector
Barnaby was a frustrated business technology professional who had been home brewing for many years. He decided to take the plunge and become a brewer in 2015 when he trained a small local brewery and then with Brewlabs in Sunderland. His first challenge was to perfect the art of brewing continental style lagers as he felt there was a big opportunity
