CHARN­WOOD Brew­ery is set to open its first mi­cropub.

The Sor­rel Fox is be­ing opened in Mountsor­rel, and aims to be at the heart of the com­mu­nity, pro­vid­ing good qual­ity beer and a place where peo­ple can meet and chat.

Charn­wood Brew­ery was started by An­drew and An­drea Reed in De­cem­ber 2014, with the idea of pro­duc­ing beers to sell to pubs, bars and restau­rants in the lo­cal area.

They al­ways wanted to be sell­ing their beer to the best pub in a vil­lage or area, and where that wasn’t pos­si­ble, they would con­sider open­ing their own out­let.

Now, four years af­ter open­ing the brew­ery, they are about to open their first mi­cropub.

The pub is near The Green and the newly built Me­mo­rial Cen­tre, in the heart of the vil­lage.

Ac­cord­ing to An­drew, they have had sup­port from many lo­cal peo­ple plus the parish coun­cil.

“I think they share our view that vil­lages need new places on the High Street to help re­vi­talise vil­lage cen­tres,” he said.

The Sor­rel Fox will sell a range of Charn­wood’s real ales and craft beers.

There will also be a lager im­ported from Aus­tria to com­ple­ment the brew­ery’s own draught beers.

The pub will of­fer a com­pre­hen­sive wine list sup­plied by wine mer­chant, George Hill, as well as a range of gins.

The pub will be run by Nick Parker who has worked for the brew­ery for the last 18 months.

The pub is due to be open by the end of Novem­ber, and the open­ing hours will be 5pm to 10pm, Mon­day to Thurs­day, noon to 10.30pm, Fri­day and Satur­day, and noon to 8pm on Sun­day.
