As part of the January newsletter, Kate and Alex pulled together a few quirky facts for you...
In 2020 we
- Brewed an estimated 1.4 million pints worth of beer (interestingly this is still less than 1% of the total UK annual production).
- Used 3000 kg of hops and 325 tonnes of malt
- Packaged 1.8 million bottles through our sister packaging company of both Wold Top and other breweries’ beer.
- Sent out over 10,000 boxes of beer to individual customers all over the UK. From Scotland to Cornwall and everywhere in between!
- Used 17,500 box staples.
- Have gone through 700 rolls of packaging and fragile tape.
- Used 6 rolls (300m) of bubble wrap.
- Filled 800+ mini casks.
- Increased our social media followers by 30% over Facebook and Instagram.
- Saw a 1170% increase in online sales through our brewery website, and of those customers who bought online in 2020, 94% had never purchased our beers directly from us online before.
We ate (collectively as a Wold Top/Agricola Bottling team)
- 192 bacon sandwiches
- 20 birthday cakes
- 5 tubs of Celebrations/Miniature Heroes/Quality Streets
- 50 mince pies
- Numerous chocolate biscuits
- 3000 cups of coffee
- 5000 mugs of tea (Yorkshire, of course)
- And a few pints of beer and glasses of wine!
Let’s see what 2021 will bring!
Alex and Kate
