Shock as Youngs brewery is to close

23rd May 2006

The Campaign for Real Ale (CAMRA) is disappointed by the announcement today (May 23nd) that Young's will close the Ram Brewery in central Wandsworth and move production to Bedford by October 2006. Young's has set up a joint venture with Charles Wells Brewery to brew its beers at the Eagle Brewery in Bedford, and despite assurances that the two companies will continue to operate their respective pub estates independently CAMRA is very concerned over the possible implications of the move. However CAMRA takes some reassurance from the fact that Young's will remain a vertically integrated company. CAMRA Chief Executive Mike Benner said: “We have known for some time that Young's could not continue at its present site, but we held out hope that efforts to find a suitable local alternative would bear fruit and not spell the death of more than four centuries of brewing tradition in Wandsworth.
