Brewery plans passed

NORTH Somerset Council has granted planning permission for a micro-brewery to be built in Congresbury.

Yeowood Farm, in Iwood Lane, will house the small family-run business and its co-owner said he was delighted by the decision.

He initially applied to build the brewery in February and his idea was backed by Congresbury Parish Council last month.

And he said his thoughts had now turned to how he could make the project a reality.

He said they were currently negotiating a few details with the landlord and remains confident that ale could be brewed as early as October.

The business will act as part-time family hobby alongside his freelance role as a IT project manager.

He said: “It’s really small-scale so will be doing small runs of beer which will be sold to local outlets, delis and restaurants.”
