New owner and new look for Plassey Brewery

The award-winning Plassey Brewery of Wrexham has a new owner, in the shape of Jack Hanby who has been working in the industry since the 1970s in breweries such as these:

1974-1980 Shipstones Nottingham as Brewer

1980-1988 Shrewsbury and Wem Brewery as Head Brewer

1988-2009 Hanby Ales as Brewer and MD

2009-2012 Gertie Sweet Brewing Co as Brewer and proprietor

2012 New Plassey Brewery as Brewer and proprietor

The company has been formed after the merger of Plassey Brewery with Gertie Sweet Brewery and is due to the success of the new Wrexham Lager Company. Ian Dale the previous owner of Plassey is fully committed with the new lager venture so it made sense for Jack Hanby, who was brewing his own beers at the Plassey, to merge the two companies and to market the most popular brands of the two companies under the banner of a new company hence The New Plassey Brewery.

Some of the beers from this new venture will be available at the Great Welsh Beer & Cider Festival in June at the Motorpoint Arena.
