Brewery News Update October 2016

We are delighted to announce that the new Brewery Taproom – our inhouse shop and bar – is now open to the public.

Our provisional hours going forwards will be as follows…

Thu 16.30 to 18.30
Fri 16.30 to 19.30
Sat 11.30 to 14.00

Please note the closing times are not “last orders”, they are closing times. These hours will most likely vary as we settle in, to meet demand, so please check this website or our Facebook page for the most up to date details.

We are also planning a special opening event on site from 11:30 to 17:00 on Saturday 29th October – keep following us for more details. There’s been a lot of effort (and blood sweat & tears!) to convert a derelict Victorian.

Brewery News Update August 2016

As part of our move to Cranborne, the Sixpenny Tap in Sixpenny Handley will close its door for the last time on Saturday 17th September. However, the bigger, better, Tap Mk2 will be opening at Holwell Farm, Cranborne, later in the Autumn. This short break will give us the chance to finish off the fitting of the new shop and bar, whilst at the same time continuing to brew and supply pubs in the area.

Apologies for any inconvenience this will cause, but converting a 150 year old stable into a smart, comfortable and welcoming establishment is no easy job. Replacing the much admired Tap is a huge challenge, but we believe you’ll love it. Keep following us and we’ll let you know the opening date as soon as we can.

Scott, Lorraine & the team look forward to welcoming you in Cranborne in the near future.
