Breweries & prices
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 - £10,600.00 / €12.700.00
This brewery should be small enough to fit into most buildings and beer cellars, and large enough to be of commercial consideration.
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 - £15,100.00 / €18.100.00
This basic 4 barrel brewery includes all-purpose made steel breweries with wooden cladding and stainless steel fermenting vessels.
5.5 or 6 Barrel Brewery
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.
We have installed over 40 breweries of this size in the last 5 years
7 Barrel Brewery Complete Lager and Ale Brewery - £58,800,00 +VAT
8 Barrel Brewery

Prices from £62,900.00 / €75.400.00, including the following additional plant:-
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.
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.
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.
* 3.1m x 1.5m for a 4 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.
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.
