Brewery Update

By Curious Brewing, April, 3 2020

Dear Customer,

Thank you for your amazing support. We are working as fast as we can to get your orders out to you – we really have been inundated with orders and heart-felt good wishes.

We are currently asking customers to allow up to 14 days for delivery whilst we are training new staff to cope with the demand. Thanks for being so understanding and for your lovely messages. It means a lot to a fantastic hard-working group of people doing their utmost to safely get you your wine and beer. We all know how important it is!

As with everyone, the Coronvirus has has a profound effect on Brewery life. Whilst the supply of our draught beer in pubs, bars and restaurants has sadly temporarily ceased, we are still able to keep up with the demand for our bottles and cans from our online sales. A big thank you to our loyal customers and shareholders for your support and orders at this time.

Our friends at Givaudan in Ashford have helped us to produce more than 1 tonne of hand sanitiser to date. We will be distributing this free of charge to the Kent NHS and Midwives Association of Kent, local care homes and volunteers, as well as local farmers and other key workers most in need at this time. If you have an urgent need for sanitiser in the community, please do get in touch at matta@curiousbrewery.com

In a bid to brighten our customer’s days in the coming weeks, we will be releasing a number of brewery exclusives. The first is our response to When Life Gives you Lemons. We made a bug-busting ‘Grapefruit & Lemon-infused Session IPA’. We re-fermented our triple hopped Session IPA with real lemons and grapefruits, donated from local restaurants that would otherwise have gone to waste. This limited edition beer will be available in 750ml bottles later this month when its perfect.

Finally, each Thursday evening at 6pm I am also hosting a live Q&A session on the @CuriousBrewery Instagram page. I do hope you’ll be able to join me for a beer over the coming weeks.

Matt Anderson, Head Brewer

I hope you take advantage of these product recommendations, all of which come with free delivery. We are working to get deliveries out to customers as swiftly as possible and are training additional staff to assist with this, but to remind you we are asking for customers to allow up to 14 days for delivery. Please be patient. We will get it out!

Don’t forget that it’s St George’s Day on 23rd April (and Shakespeare’s birthday) and you surely wouldn’t be without a glass of something quintessentially English on our National Day, would you?

Meanwhile as I work from home, I’m starting to understand why my Labrador gets so excited to go for a walk. And for those of you self isolating, you have my sympathy. My friend, Tony, is on his 10th day of self isolation and says it’s like Las Vegas. He’s losing money by the minute, cocktails are acceptable at any hour and nobody has any idea what time it is…

Once again, thanks for your support. Please stay safe and sane.

Frazer Thompson,
CEO
