A gin tasting experience will take place at the Blythe Tap Bar in Stretton!
Author: Blythe Brewery
Last night at The Junction, Stretton (the tap house for the Blythe Brewery) we had the pleasure of hosting Blythe Brewer!
Blythe travelled for over an hour from the western reaches of Staffordshire especially to try out the range of beers and ales from Blythe Brewery. Blythe has many friends in Stretton, and they prevailed on her to make a special guest appearance.
Coincidences in the English language make for extra special occasions such as last night and Kevin and Alex Dudley of the Blythe Brewery were especially pleased to welcome Blythe Brewer!
A good time was a had by all.
From Wednesday 16th January a new cider will be introduced at our Tap Bar, The Junction, Stretton. It is a Dark Fruit Cider produced by our friends at The Lovely Cider Company from nearby Yoxall.
All of the Yoxall ciders are handcrafted with love and care by James Williams and his team, and we are delighted to add this excellent product to our range of crafted beers and ciders at The Junction. The original Yoxall cider sold well and was appreciated by many since we opened in November and we hope cider lovers will take the chance to sample this new creation. We look forward to seeing you soon!

Join Blythe Brewery at The Junction
Grand Opening Wednesday 7th November from 4pm
For the past few months Blythe Brewery (based in Hamstall Ridware) owners Alex & Kevin have been working especially hard…they were converting a shop in Stretton (just north of Burton-on-Trent} into a new pub! The Junction will stock real ale produced by Blythe Brewery as well as locally produced Cider (brewed in Yoxall). Vodka and Gin will also be specialities of the house and of course wines, soft drinks and even tea & coffee will be available!
The opening hours are
Sunday 1pm to 10pm
Wednesday 4pm to 11pm
Thursday 4pm to 11pm
Friday Noon to 11pm
Saturday Noon to 11pm
The official opening will take place on 7pm Wednesday 7th November with members of Tamworth CAMRA (Campaign for Real Ale) team there to formally present the Certificate for the LocAle Beer Award from the Tamworth Beer Festival 2018. All welcome, doors open at 4pm!
The decor and style of The Junction has been well thought out by Alex & Kevin and features contemporary design based on a theatrical theme, one of the highlights being the theatre style armchairs which have been ingeniously adapted to be movable to suit different group sizes. The lighting is based on stage lights and the gigantic mirror will give the premises a feeling of great depth. The bar area has a reclaimed look about it and has been especially built in reclaimed steel to a more friendly height, giving comfort when sitting on the bar stools or when propping up the bar!
Grand designs from a forward looking team at Blythe Brewery.
The artwork has been provided by David Walker, a PhotoArtist from Yoxall, and an unofficial member of the Blythe team. The designs of the pieces were chosen to enhance the ambiance of the premises.
Everything is ready to welcome you to The Junction and to tempt you with the excellent range of real ales and beers from Blythe Brewery. You will not be disappointed!

National newspapers are reporting that the brewing industry could be severely effected by a European wide shortage of carbon dioxide (CO2).
Blythe Brewery is eager to point out that their range of beers and ales are not dependent on added carbon dioxide, after all the unnecessary introduction of CO2 is an essential part of the Real Ale story.
Supplies from Blythe will not therefore be effected by the shortage. If the shortage of CO2 does lead to problems for some breweries Blythe has the capability of significantly increasing output without detriment to the quality and integrity of their products. If you are running short of stocks or want to ensure you have supplies please contact Kevin Dudley on email firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone 01889 504461
