A new micropub is being launched in Bamber Bridge to cater for Preston’s growing real ale scene.Advertisement
The former BBTV shop in Station Road is being refitted by Graham Roberts.
Named Brig N Barrel it’s going to be run by Graham, one of his friends and both of their partners.
The 37-year-old said: “We will be free from any ties and will look to provide our customers with quality beers from the local area, and sourcing some from further afield, and we will always be open to recommendations from our customers, and aim to provide them with any quality ales they would like to see in our micro.
“It was a former TV Shop before we took it on, and we are renovating it from top to bottom – we stripped it right down to a shell which we did ourselves, and now the tradesman are in and building it back up ready for the opening.
“It is our first business venture, and our first time into the hospitality sector too but ready for the challenge and learning along the way.”
