Brew­ery launches its first mi­cropub

Loughborough Echo - - SHEPSHED SCENE -

CHARN­WOOD Brew­ery has launched its first ever mi­cropub, The Sor­rel Fox in Le­ices­ter Road, Mountsor­rel.

It 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 fan­tas­tic beers to sell to pubs, bars and restau­rants in the lo­cal area.

They al­ways wanted to sell 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 have opened their first mi­cropub.

An­drew and An­drea were keen to cre­ate a com­fort­able place where peo­ple could meet for a drink.

The decor of the pub has been taken care of by An­drea, who care­fully se­lected colours and ma­te­ri­als.

There’s a log burner, which adds a cosy feel to the place, and all the lights are on dim­mers to cre­ate the right at­mos­phere for the right time of day.

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

On cask will be Vixen, Sal­va­tion, Carousel, and Rain­bow Fox (brewed to sup­port the work of the lo­cal hospice).

In keg will be Black Fox Stout and the multi award-win­ning Amer­i­can Pale Ale.

A small but well thought out range of wines sup­plied mainly by Ge­orge Hill Wine Mer­chants in Lough­bor­ough.

The pub is for over 18s only, but four-legged friends are wel­come on a lead.

The Sor­rel Fox, Mountsor­rel. Charn­wood Brew­ery’s first mi­cro pub.
