Exciting times are unfolding here at Bevisol as we are seeing big changes being put into place in our brand new filtration and process hall. Project Diamond has taken a lot of planning and we are proud of the work that has been carried out so far.
Amazingly, we have managed to source the original staircase and yeast tanks from the site where Chris Newall, Bevisol's Managing Director, started his brewing career.
We saved both the staircase and yeast tanks from the the former Burton No. 1 Brewery.
We have plans to refurbish both the staircase and former yeast tanks then later install these here at Bevisol.
We continue to look forward to being able to declare P3 open and ready for the exciting plans we have in store.

In the summer of 2020, the Bevisol and Doehler boards decided to make an new multi-million pound investment at Bevisol – ‘Project Diamond’ commenced late August 2020. The objective : to build a new production facility capable of producing up to 50,000 tonnes/annum of fermented products, mainly for global export.
As well as installing 21 fermenting and storage tanks, all sitting on 2000 tonnes of concreate containing 150 tonnes of reinforcing steel, there is also a new 1200m2 process hall (No.3), which will house specialist processing equipment made in Holland and Germany. All this will be powered by a new 11,000 volt electricity supply and solar panels.
Project Diamond will go fully live in May 2021 and is creating 16 new jobs at Bevisol. Many of the building and process contractors are sourced locally, in Herefordshire.
Product will be filled into 26,000 litre-capacity, stainless steel iso-tanks and shipped by boat, taking up to 3 weeks to arrive at destination.
Executed over a short project timeline, this is a massive technical, engineering and logistical exercise.
Further updates to come as the project progresses.
