Growing demand for Brakspear's beers has led the Henley company to spend £750,000 on expanding its capacity. While elsewhere in the industry there is overcapacity and breweries face closure, demand for Brakspear's ales continues to increase. It has a strong on-trade following in southern England which has benefited from a distribution agreement with Scottish Courage. It has also been developing its off-trade business, where its brands are handled by Wychwood. The brewery is running at full stretch at peak periods. This investment will increase its capacity by 25%. One of Brakspear's latest introductions was an organic ale called Naturale. The beer was well liked but it has found it difficult to win listings. Some of the major off-trade buyers were not impressed by the packaging of the 330ml bottle. {{DRINKS }}
