Silhill Brewery is moving its base of operations to Aston, opening its first ever taproom next month.

After 10 years in Solihull the independent brewery is expanding, moving to a larger and more central premises that will be a bar as well as the main site for brewing.

The 5,000sq ft taproom and brewery is set to open to the public on Friday 31 May with an evening of live entertainment and a chance to explore to brewery itself.

Promising an eclectic selection of beers brewed on site alongside live music events, big screens for the football and rotating street food traders, the move is an ambitious step forward for owner and head brewer Mark Gregory.

“We are absolutely thrilled to open Silhill Brewery and Taproom next month. After years as a small business it’s honestly a dream come true to be expanding and becoming a part of the city’s thriving bar scene.

“When we were told our current brewing site in Solihull was due to be developed by the landlord, it seemed like the perfect opportunity to take the leap and invest in the brewery’s future. Luckily we found a site that was ideal for our growth plans.

“We’ll be able to accommodate up to 300 in the taproom and the yard, which we hope will be a hit when summer arrives. We’ve invested heavily into this new project, transforming the industrial unit from the ground up. It’s been a real labour of love but seeing it come together is so rewarding.

“When I became a brewer, I always visualised being able to share our beers with people in a taproom setting - this move is a result of years of perfecting the brews, passionately believing in what we create and building the right team to grow the business.

“There’s plenty to do ahead of the grand opening at the end of May but it’s an incredibly exciting time for the Silhill family. If all goes well we’d like to set up more taprooms like this, including back in Solihull where we proudly started our journey.”

Offering a beer for all tastes, the Silhill range currently includes IPAs, pale, golden and amber ales, plus a lager and a porter. All 8 will be available at the taproom alongside additional wines and spirits.

Silhill can be found at 44 Bracebridge Street, Aston, B64PE and opens officially at 7pm on 31/05/24. Brewery tours will be available soon.
