Outline specification and prices for typical brewery installations

Full equipment list for all standard installations as detailed on the Installations include page is included for all of these brewery types unless specified otherwise

VAT will be applied to all prices where applicable


1 British Brewers Barrel = 1BBL = 36 gallons = 288 pints = 163.6 litres = 43 US gallons

All brewery sizes are true plant yields, therefore a 6BBL brewery will yield 24 x 9 gallon casks


PLEASE NOTE: I do not usually sell or supply small sections or brewery parts. I typically only supply and install complete breweries or complete brew houses.


2.5 Barrel Brewery - £10,9500.00 / €12.900.00
400 litres / 90 UK gallons

This brewery should be small enough to fit into most buildings and beer cellars, and large enough to be of commercial consideration.

2.5 barrel_1 ...... 2.5barrel_2

The fermenting vessels are manufactured in food grade polyethylene (MDPE) and all brewhouse vessels are fabricated new in stainless steel. Concerns about polyethylene? Click Here

Minimum production quantity approx 36 gallons.


4 Barrel Brewery - £15,450.00 / €18.200.00
650 litres / 140 UK gallons

This basic 4 barrel brewery includes all-purpose made steel breweries with wooden cladding and stainless steel fermenting vessels.
This is usually the maximum size of operation that can utilize single-phase electricity supply.


5.5 or 6 Barrel Brewery
980 litres / 215 UK gallons

This my most popular installation being of a size that when producing 2 batches a week should produce enough income to support a viable business venture on a full time basis for one person.

Custom designs

There are of course many hybrids of the above systems, and if those listed here seem not to suit your requirements then please speak to me direct. Creating breweries from new materials obviously gives the ability to produce an infinite number of variables in the sizes of the vessels.

Gas and steam fired systems can be quoted separately.
These systems are only commercially viable from 12 barrel breweries upwards.

Mirror finish stainless steel cladding on the brewing vessels, can be quoted separately. For mill finish stainless steel cladding add 8% to the prices of the 4, 6 and 8 barrel breweries. Stainless cladding on the 10 and 12 BBL breweries are 10% extra.

2.5 BBL
6 BBL

Area Requirements

Area requirements obviously differ with each brewery. Ideally the brewery should be split into two distinct areas, one for the 'brewhouse' and the other for the fermenting room. Most breweries can be squeezed into suitable areas. If space or access is a problem then please contact me and I'm sure we will be able to come to some configuration to fit.

We have designed and installed small area installations.
For example - the brewhouse vessels (hot liquor tank, mash tun, copper) + heat exchanger, three pumps and pipework into areas

* 3.1m x 1.5m for a 4 barrel
* & 4.9m x 1.7m for a 6 barrel

Please note that these restrictions do not make for an ideal, easy to operate system, and will carry an install premium.

Minimum production quantities of all the breweries specified here is about 30% of total capacity.

Small space 4 BBL Brewery

There will also be a requirement for additional areas for cask washing, malt store, cold room (optional), and empty cask storage.

Area requirements for standard breweries will depend upon a lot of variables, like the position of windows and doors, as well as roof height and drainage. Having outside secure or off-site storage also helps to reduce the area requirements. If there is room for a mezzanine floor then this obviously helps. The below table is operational area and does not include toilets or office space.

Brewery Size (Barrels)Area feet² Min - MaxTotal Electricty Required
2.5250 - 50020kW 240V
4400 - 70020kW 240V
6700 - 100028kW 415V
8800 - 110037kW 415V
101000 - 120040kW 415V
121200 - 140045kW 415V
151400 - 160060kW 415V

If there is an intension of real ale bottling, then another 200-300 feet² will be needed

If your requirement is for the 'boutique' style installation as seen in many continental and North American brew pubs then we will more than happy to review your specification and submit a quotation for the work.

Keg washers can be supplied for £3,300 for a twin head or £3,900 for the triple head plus VAT, supply is only available to full brewery customers.


Additional considerations

If not already specifically included above (20 BBL Breweries), our standard installations do not include:-

  • Refrigeration
  • Air conditioning systems
  • Casks and cask washing facilities
  • Delivery vehicle / carriage costs
  • Building work including exit holes for the copper chimney
  • Wall, floor coverings and drainage
  • Electrical works
  • Stock

As a general guidance the minimum set up cost you should expect for the total installation of a potential brewery will be about two to two half times the basic brewery costs itemised above.

On the plus side you should be able to produce a quality 4.0% ABV ale for about £0.33p a pint duty paid.

Full costing will be give upon any request for further information.
