Introducing Round Corner Brewing, Melton Mowbray’s new state-of-the-art brewery

Located in the heart of Melton Mowbray’s iconic agricultural market, Round Corner Brewing is the newest addition to the East Midlands’ food and drink scene that you’ve got to see for yourself.

It’s the culmination of a 15-year vision shared by two life-long friends, internationally acclaimed brewer Colin Paige and City director Combie Cryan. They’ve always dreamed of building the brewery of their dreams and making iconic British beers. And with a gorgeous bespoke brewkit and taproom serving up fresh-pours daily, beer lovers are in for a treat.

The brewery boasts a unique town-meets-country location, a state-of-the-art brew-kit capable of brewing 2,000 litres at a time, and a taproom that promises to become a star attraction.

Launching in December 2018 at Melton’s Victorian Christmas Fayre, Round Corner’s first batch of Topside Golden Ale got rave reviews from thirsty punters in a part of the world whose passion for artisanal food and drink is renowned.

And with a vibrant market to call home, celebrated food and drink festivals and hundreds of thousands of visitors every year, Combie and Colin are committed to making beer with unmistakable character, which is a reflection of a unique regional heritage.

Round Corner brews classic styles while embracing the experimentation and discovery that is the hallmark of the UK’s contemporary beer scene, including seasonals, collaborations and taproom specials with other local food producers. The core range will include a Golden Ale, a West Coast IPA, a Lager, a Black Lager and a Pale Ale, all brewed with Colin’s exacting patience and finesse – something for every palette and every occasion.
