Who are we?
Delphic Brewing Company is an independent super-micro-brewery based out of a double-garage in Thatcham, Berkshire. Founded by Tom Broadbank, we began brewing in 2019, in small batches with an eye for flavour and quality. We brew both traditional cask ales and exciting craft beers. From Bitters to Pale Ales, Sours to Stouts, we aim to brew something for everyone!
The Story So Far...
Currently, Delphic is a 2.5BBL plant based in a 320ft² double garage space, producing beer across a variety of styles and packaging formats. It produces around 420 litres per batch. The company initially focused on building cask ale sales, in the local freehouse trade. Then hit by the COVID-19 pandemic, the company shifted with agility to web-shop sales, takeaway draught beer, bottles and cans. The local community embraced the brewery as a ‘round the corner’ beverage producer and quickly established a loyal following and strong customer base.
Since we began, we've increased our fermentation capacity by 150% and filled our home to the gills! It's time for us to expand!
We have found new premises, a 3192ft² warehouse and retail space in Newbury town centre. A mere 5 minute walk from Newbury Station and 3 minute walk from the Marketplace. The new home for our brewery, with plenty of space to open an onsite taproom where you will be able to enjoy our beer at the source! We'll be upgrading our brewhouse, but remaining small-batch so you can expect to see plenty of monthly seasonal releases, alongside our core-range. Newbury's very first brewery taproom experience! With 10 lines of keg beer and 3 cask ale handpulls, beer from us, plus local and national guest lines, we think it's going to be brilliant and can't wait to welcome you.
We have secured funding to renovate the premises for the brewhouse to move in, including the brewery flooring, drainage and utilities. However we could do with some help getting the taproom open and making it the best place it can be. We're hoping that's where you guys will be up for getting involved with our Crowdfund! Your funding will help contribute towards some of the following costs:
- Cold store and refrigeration for packaged beer/cellar for bar
- Fitting out the bar (Taps, lines etc.)
- Furniture for the taproom
- Glassware/Glasswasher/Other bar equipment
- Opening stock
- Improved Toilet facilities
Having grown up in Thatcham and Newbury, it's home! We love Newbury and want to join it's growing collection of independent businesses. Also we strongly feel that while Newbury has a great selection of good real ale pubs, there's a gap in the market for a Brewery Taproom experience, and we want to be the destination for Craft Beer in the town!
