Ken and Jenny Lynch launch Serious Brewing Company

Date published: 09 December 2015

Husband and wife team Ken and Jenny Lynch have launched Serious Brewing Company, a new artisan micro brewery in Rochdale.

Having been enthusiastic home brewers for several years, Ken and Jenny have spent the past year researching and refining a small range of premium quality beers that they will produce from their micro-brewery site in Fieldhouse Industrial Estate, Rochdale.

Ken and Jenny have already invested their own money to setup the micro-brewery and begin brewing, and a £25k start-up loan from Business Finance Solutions (BFS) will help to purchase new brewing equipment for the business.

The Serious Brewing Company will focus on producing bottle-conditioned and keg-conditioned beers, which draw influences from traditional British ale, US craft beers and aspects of artisan Belgian beers.

Initially, the brewery will concentrate on supplying beer in bottles and key-kegs to local shops, pubs and restaurants as well as attending local and farmers’ markets. They plan to produce casks for local pubs and beer festivals in the New Year.

Ken said: “Thanks to the start up loan from BFS we were able to buy the equipment we need to brew premium quality beer.

"We have a passion for creating interesting beers that are full of flavour and we enjoy being a little bit experimental.

"Like us, many people are becoming interested in different styles of beer, it is not just bitter, mild, stout and lager which are popular now.

"Saisons, sour beers, dubbels and trappist beers are becoming increasingly sought after and we are excited to be brewing beer influenced as much by the brewing traditions of Belgium as our own British ales."
