The secret behind a great pint
Whether you are an existing brewery or starting your own brand, Hambleton Brewery has the perfect contract solution for you. We aim to be the ‘secret’ behind our customer’s great beer, and we’re proud to have supported and help grow many well-known breweries and brands.
Our brewing, bottling and kegging facilities are fully accredited to the SALSA with Beer standard, recognised by Cask Marque and major supermarkets. You can be safe in the knowledge that we will treat your beer just as we treat our own, which include a CAMRA Champion Winter Beer of Britain, and a Category Winner at the prestigious World Beer Awards.
At Hambleton Brewery we have over 28 years of brewing experience of both our own products and the contract brewing of other brewery’s craft beers. This covers a huge range of styles, covering everything from English bitters to chocolate porters and from pilsner style beers to heavily hopped American IPA’s. Our brewery, packaging equipment and procedures are fully accredited to the latest SALSA with beer standards, and we are subject to ongoing independent auditing, meaning you can be assured your product is in good hands.
Stainless steel kegs are washed and sterilised on a fully automated unit followed immediately with filling of beer. The beer can be unfiltered or filtered to the brewer’s specification. Carbonation and ‘nitro’ levels can also be specified.
The line is suitable for a wide range of keg types; including stainless steel kegs and one trip kegs such as Key Keg or Doliums. We are also able to provide steel rental kegs from stock. In addition, we can fill 5 litre mini kegs as part of a dedicated 5 or 10 barrel run, or alternatively small volumes can be produced as part of a large volume bottling or kegging run.
Bottling & canning
Hambleton Brewery specialise in low volume bottling & canning runs between 5 and 20 barrels (830 to 3300 litres). We are specifically set up to ensure high quality handling and processing of beer and cider, with storage on site to allow up to 2 weeks conditioning at -1 degrees before packaging.
Stabilisation is typically carried out by cold sterile filtration, however other filtration levels are available depending on brewer’s requirements for the finished product. Our brewery, packaging equipment and procedures are fully accredited to the latest SALSA with beer standards, and we are subject to ongoing independent auditing, meaning you can be assured your product is in good hands.
Whether we are bottling your beer for you or you simply can not bare the job of bulk labelling bottles yourself we can help. Our labelling machine can apply full wraps, front and backs and neck labels to a wide variety of bottle shapes and sizes.
