We spoke to them this evening to confirm the sad news, following Steephill Jack posting it on the VentnorBlog forum.
The winter months are always quieter for trade and the Brewery just needed a little help from the bank to tide them over until the trade picked up in the spring months.
The team told VB that the Brewery went to the bank, but the bank wouldn’t help them – resulting in the Brewery having to close its doors.
All of our thoughts – and we’re sure those of Ventnor and the whole of the Island – go to the all of those who worked at the Brewery.
Sad news indeed.
