In the year 2000 Dave Yates finally got his dream to own his 5 barrel brewing plant and install it in a converted room on the side of the late Inn at St Lawrence pub in Ventnor.
Armed with his Years of brewing knowledge and Ingredients bible his aim was to supply a dozen or so pubs across the island. Since then Dads plant has doubled in size and so has the brewery premises.
Now based in Newchurch you can find our ales in most outlets across the isle of wight.
In 2001 Daves Son David Yates ( Jnr) joined the company with a vision to form a wholesale drinks company to operate alongside the brewery.
Working out of a small depot on Dean Farm in Whitwell the wholesale side rapidly became a success by offering a same day delivery service 7 days a week.
In 2004 Business had no choice but to move to bigger premises in Newchurch alongside the brewery.
This Helped to increase our already expanding product range and we can now offer a range of over 3000 products and we continue to supply over 300 licensed premises across the IOW.
Thank You! Dave Snr & David Jnr
We would like to thank all our existing and unbelievably loyal customers for their continued business over the last 13 years, most of you who have been with us since day one. Thank you !
