Brewery to open on Old Dairy sitePosted by: Paul Stimpson
Holley Paquette LTD has lodged an application with the council to launch a new microbrewery in Sheffield
The Old Dairy site on Broadfield Road is in the process of being renovated and could become home to Sheffield's newest brewery.
Dann and Martha Holley-Paquette, directors at Holley-Paquette LTD, have been involved in the brewing industry for a number of years, both in the UK and in the States.
The microbrewery will be housed on the bottom floor of the building and produce craft beer in bottles and kegs for sale to wholesale customers. The Old Dairy was built in the 1920s for use as a milk and cheese processing plant until it was discontinued.
As part of the proposal, a statement read: "The proposal to renovate and refurbish Unit 8 of The Old Dairy complex for use as a microbrewery is a sustainable use, which will provide jobs and ongoing increased business to the local neighbourhood and beyond. The site has a history of food processing and manufacture, which is in keeping with this new proposal."
