Strong demand for Helles Beach Cornish Lager has led to an expansion of capacity at Firebrand Brewing Co, in Launceston, North Cornwall.
The increase, of 36,000 litres, comes in the form of four new stainless steel fermentation vessels. This doubles the brewery’s previous capacity.
The expansion in capacity is a milestone for the brewery and marks a substantial investment. As well as Helles Beach, the extra fermentation will also benefit popular brews Shorebreak alcohol-free hazy pale, West Coast Session IPA, and Patchwork Rocket pale ale.

“We’re committed to maintaining the exceptional quality that our customers have come to love, while increasing the availability of this fantastic beer.”
