Garden Shed producing 1000 points in this week by Britain Smallest Brewery
It gives the term beer garden a whole new meaning -Plymouth’s newest microbrewery is in a backyard shed.
The Bulletproof Brew Co has been created in the back garden of liquor entrepreneur Patrick Lawrence’s mum’s city centre house.
And it’s pumping out 400 litres of German-style craft lager every week.
That’s 1,200 “stubby” 330ml cans – the container of choice for the emerging craft beer industry.
Mr Lawrence and co-director Connor Johnson now want to grow the one-year-old firm – because they are already having problems meeting demand.
Their products – Hollow Point Helles, Schwarz Beer, and the 6.7 per cent ABV Metal Base Maibock – are selling out in bars, shops and restaurants.
They’re impressed a legion of lager lovers in venues such as The Treasury, Bread and Roses, the Greedy Goose and the new Vessel Beer Shop.
The business partners expect the Seco Lounge to take the brews next, and they have been hired for a big corporate event, and will be selling their drinks from the pump at the Royal William Yard Festival on May 27 and 28.
Mr Lawrence has been brewing his own lager for five years, but in 2016 decided to go professional and set up Bulletproof Beer Co with Mr Johnson.
The men spent £2,600 acquiring a 12ft by 10ft shed, and another £2,400 on the foundation and amenities.
