Richard Shrosbery, General Manager of Green Beacon Brewing Company, expressed his enthusiasm for the project: “This announcement is unbelievably exciting for Green Beacon. The new brewery and hospitality venue will ensure we get our award-winning beers into the hands of more beer lovers than ever before.”

The venue is set to become a significant employer in the area, creating numerous job opportunities. 

“We want to bring people together to connect, talk, laugh and have fun – and we believe this new precinct will enable that,” Mr Shrosbery said.
