Alter Ego Brewing Co will celebrate its move to Alfreton with a special Halloween tap room launch weekend.

The company started in Heanor in July 2018 and released its first beer – Echo Chamber – in November the same year.

Alter Ego Brewing Co has grown since then – producing beers in kegs and cans – and was in need of a larger home.

It has now relocated to a unit on the Meadow Lane Industrial Estate on Salcombe Road.

The new unit will be unveiled to the public for the first time on Friday, October 28 during a tap room launch event.

El Capos Pizza will be on hand to provide food at the event, which will take place between 3pm and 8pm.

A second launch event will take place on Saturday, October 29 between 12pm and 8pm.

From then on, Alter Ego Brewing Co will open monthly to serve beer and the company hopes to open a shop to sell its beer from at a later date.

Brewer Matt Makins explains: “We have been on the lookout for a larger premises for the last two years. After viewing half a dozen places over that time, the unit we looked at on Salcombe Road was perfect for our needs. It also has the benefit of being very close to the train station.

“Once a month we will be opening up the brewery and serving our beer across eight keg lines and two cask lines. We will also have food vendors available during these openings. Our first will be October 28 and 29.

“Once we are settled in we also intend to allow people to pop in and purchase our beer in cans and eventually mini kegs to take away. Opening times for this will be confirmed at a later date.”

The Alter Ego Brewing Co Tap Room Launch event on October 28 and 29 is free to attend.
