Micro brewery opens taproom underneath the arches

Leamington Editorial 28th Mar, 2024   0

A MICRO-BREWERY in Leamington has opened its doors to a new taproom in the latest chapter of growth.

Windmill Hill’s new-look venue, underneath the Arches at Victoria Business Park, has been transformed with new custom booth seating, a six-line keg tap wall and a Chesterton Windmill chandelier centrepiece.

Director Gavin Leach has enjoyed success with the brewery since he turned his back on a career in pharmaceuticals to establish the business partner Rob Singleton in 2017.

Since then Windmill Hill has gone on to create award-winning seasonal and limited-edition beers, found on sale in an increasing number of independent shops and bars across south Warwickshire.

The independent brewery was born out of ‘a desire to create unique beers that both uphold traditional value and utilise expert scientific knowledge.’

The Leamington entrepreneur and dad of three, also runs The Barge and Quarterdeck, a 60-foot floating bar and pizza kitchen in Stratford’s canal basin.

He said: “We’re really excited to be opening our brewery doors as a weekly taproom. We’ve been working hard to create a beautiful space in which to serve our beers exactly where they’re made on Neilston Street.

“We’ve been regularly hosting brewery tours, and the feedback we’ve had has been great. Lots of the tour customers return to experience our brewery again, and have commented regarding opening more often and offering a taproom experience too.

“It’s really great to see something you produce from scratch being enjoyed and especially as a small local producer to be able to open up to the public and offer a taproom has been a dream since starting the business.”
