The official opening of Wylde Sky Brewing in Linton will take place on Saturday, complete with a food truck and local band performing.

The team behind the new brewery - Paul Elilio, Paulo Figurelli, and Chris Heath, will be serving five beers on tap, including a surprise, celebratory one-off beer which will be specially brewed in small batch for opening night.

The team will also be serving their Saison, a Belgian-French farmhouse ale, an American pale ale, and there may be a Kolsch-style beer on offer if it is brewed in time. Guest beers for the night will be Three Blind Mice and Brewboard. Soft drinks, wines and spirits will also be available.

Linton band, The Accellerants, will be performing and the Thai food truck from Wicken Bonhunt, Ananta, will be serving guests food.

“After a tremendous amount of planning, preparation, long hours, endless beer tastings - admittedly that’s the easy part - we are really pleased to have reached this stage,” Paul said.

“Everyone has been very supportive of our new venture and we really do appreciate everyone who has helped us along the way. This includes all our suppliers, tradesmen and particularly our immediate neighbours at The Grip who have helped us out enormously in providing the use of their fork-lift trucks often at very short notice when an unexpected delivery has arrived.

“We are now reaching out to the pub and hotel trade and wholesalers to supply our beers in keg and can. The public are more than welcome to pop by and pick up cans direct from the brewery.”

The Tap Room will be open on Thursdays from 5-8pm, Friday from 5-9pm and Saturday from 11am-10.30pm.

Paulo, Chris and Paul hope to host live music and a varied range of local food trucks.

Brewery tours are also something the team will be offering in the near future.
