Thwaites Brewery Trashed by Travellers

News: June 2018

Lancashire brewery Thwaites has suffered damage estimated at around £100,000 after its Blackburn site was invaded by travellers.

A group of around 100 travellers are said to have taken over the premises, damaging vehicles and offices. Thwaites has confirmed that 1,700 pints of beer have been poured away in case they had been contaminated during the incident.

The company is due to move to a new smaller brewing site at Mellor Brook, some five miles away, later this year.
