Abergavenny site planned for Drop Bear £1.9m carbon neutral brewery

Drop Bear Beer Co has revealed that Abergavenny, Wales’ ‘food capital’, is where it plans to buid the world’s first carbon neutral alcohol-free brewery.

The pioneering craft brewer has submitted plans to build its bespoke brewery on a farm near Abergavenny, an area renowned for food and drink excellence and innovation.

If given the go-ahead by the Brecon Beacons National Park Authority, Celliwig
Farm on the outskirts of Abergavenny will become home to Drop Bear’s brewery - a move that would allow the burgeoning business to increase production and create jobs in the locality.

The proposed development and growth of the company represents an equity investment £1.9m.

The planned brewery would give the company the capacity to produce its award-winning alcohol-free beer, along with warehousing space, cool room, offices, brewing, packaging and canning facilities.

Co-founder Joelle Drummond said, 'I can't think of a better place for Drop Bear to call home than the ‘food capital’ of Wales. The culture of food and drink is so prevalent in this region, and the proposed site was once the home to a cidery in the 18th Century.

'Our range of award-winning beers are enjoyed across the world and we look forward to really showcasing the quality of this region to national and global audiences.'
