Paddock Wood Brewing Company facts for kids
|3,000 Hectolitres (2011)|
Paddock Wood was founded in 1995 as a mail order brewing supply business providing grain, yeast and other brewing supplies to the homebrewing market. In 2000 the business expanded to include brewing kits made in house to which customers would add yeast and complete the fermentation process at home.
In 2004 Paddock Wood Brewing Co entered into negotiations with the provincial regulatory body, the Saskatchewan Liquor and Gaming Authority, in an attempt to change a standing policy that restricted the licensing of microbreweries to premises where the beer was also consumed. In the same year the province changed the regulation allowing Paddock Wood Brewing Co to transition from a supplies business to a licensed microbrewery.
Production and distribution
During 2011 Paddock Wood produced approximately 3,000 hectolitres of beer, equivalent to 500,000 bottles, an increase of 2650 hectolitres over 2007. CEO Steve Cavan has stated that the brewery attempts to adhere as closely to the German purity law for beer production as possible; Paddock Wood does not use rice, corn or added chemicals.
