Join us for our ninth anniversary here at the Mill on Saturday 20 May, with our annual Cycle Sportive, live music and street food!
The Tap Room first opened its doors to the public at the end of May 2014 and now, nine years on, it's an achievement hardly thought possible three years ago when Covid pushed the hospitality industry to its limits.
“So many breweries have struggled in recent years, some of which have found it impossible to continue,” explained Brewery director, John Evans. “Although we too have had, and continue to have, our fair share of challenges, we have been extremely fortunate to have such fantastic support from everyone living in and around Towcester, without whom there is no way we would have made it this far! Nine years in this industry is truly amazing, and we are delighted to still be a central part of the local community. We love brewing great beer and bringing everyone together and are looking forward to the next nine years!"
To celebrate our anniversary, we will be holding our fourth annual Brewery Cycle Sportive on 20 May, an event run in conjunction with Let’s Go Velo, which sees cyclists from far and wide choose a route of either 40 miles or 65 miles starting and ending at the brewery. “We normally get around 200 cyclists on the day,” added John, “which is quite an impressive sight! It’s extremely popular and there's a great atmosphere when everyone’s returned safely and can enjoy a few drinks and some street food in the garden. We believe it’s a pretty good way to spend the weekend, and that’s ultimately what we’re all about; bringing everyone together, friends and family alike, to celebrate the good times.”
Moo Hatch will also be serving up their delicious burgers from 12pm on the day, for both the hungry cyclists and anyone else who wants to pop along. Mill favourite, Craig, will be playing in the garden, weather permitting, from around 2pm-5pm.
