Registered with HMRC in late 2016, Watsons Brewery started small with beers in bottles (mostly at Two Brews on Crouch Street in Colchester), and in casks which appeared at the Colchester Winter Beer Festival in January 2017, the Chappel Winter Beer Festival in March 2017, and the Mersea Island Brewery Easter Beer Festival in April 2017. A cask was on at the Colchester CAMRA Pub of the Year Award-winning New Inn in April 2017. Watch out for two casks at the Colchester CAMRA festival at the end of May 2017.
Building works on the brewhouse in Old Heath, Colchester, in April/May will enable an increase in brewing capacity to 1BBL, after which bottles and casks will be more widely available across Essex.
As you can see from the list below, rather than having a core range of beers with a smaller number of seasonal specials, I’m producing a wide range of beers, with a few making regular appearances.
