A BREWERY which started in a garden shed is adapting to coronavirus restrictions by delivering beer to your door.

UnBarred began in 2014 as a labour of love microbrewery inside a shed at the bottom of a Hove garden, owner Jordan Mower said.

Now, the 36-year-old has built a micro-empire across the city, with a full-scale brewery and taproom in Elder Place, Brighton.

Although the pubs have been ordered to shut, the business is refusing to call last orders and is adapting to coronavirus restrictions.

To keep the city’s spirits high and glasses topped up, it is now delivering beers to the doorstep.

Mr Mower said: “The cap on the website is 60 deliveries in a day and we have hit that a few times.

“The community has been outstanding in terms of supporting us with buying beers and engaging us with feedback.”

The UnBarred team is now slightly smaller and staff have had to take up other roles to adapt to the new e-commerce business.

People who were working in the taproom in Brighton, which is no longer open to the public due to Government regulations, are now out delivering beer.

They are delivering in the BN1, BN2, BN3 and BN41 postcodes, with no delivery charge, operating a next-day service six days a week – except Mondays.

People can buy mini-kegs of casual pale, two-litre cartons of cask beer or keg beer.

Mr Mower said they have noticed an increase in “luxurious” beers, with some PAs such as Honeycomb Milkshake and Bueno Shake selling out on the website.

He said more features will be added soon, including a click and collect service and discounts for NHS workers.

He said: “People can buy next week, or early this week, with a discount code for the NHS. We are also going to be dropping off cases of beer as something to look forward to when they get home.

“Hopefully we will be doing click and collect service.

“That will be our first steps after the announcement from Boris, with people starting to move a little bit more.

“However, it will be with social distancing and keeping everyone as safe as possible.”

UnBarred has also been teaming up with other breweries online, inducing a virtual session with Brew York, a Craft Beer Shop based in York.

When asked what the company has learnt while adapting to lockdown rules, he said: “There are a lot of positives to be gained.

“Going forward we are going to work more with community and brew with discussions – let’s do this together – it would be nice to do open days.”
