Whilst visiting the village of Elsdon recently, Berwick MP Anne-Marie Trevelyan popped in to visit the new brewery venture located there, to lend her support to their work and hear more about how they are doing.
The First and Last Brewery is run by Red and Sam Kellie, who started the project back in 2016. They now brew a range of ales, which are served in the next door Bird in Bush pub in Elsdon.
The Brewery also receives a grant from the LEADER programme, which has enabled them to produce cask and bottled ales which they sell to over 20 pubs in Northumberland.
Speaking after the visit, Anne-Marie said: “It was great to visit the First and Last Brewery in Elsdon which is one of many small and new companies being supported by the LEADER programme. I am working with colleagues and the Secretary of State to ensure that we have a viable alternative to the ELADER programme in place once we have left the EU so we can carry on this valuable work in Northumberland.”
