A BREWERY popular with drinkers from Tameside is closing its doors after finding current issues ‘insurmountable.’
Donkeystone – which is based on the Wellington Industrial Park in Greenfield, behind the Tesco supermarket – will pour its final pint for customers tonight (Wednesday, March 22).
After surviving Covid-19 lockdowns, the company, formed on Boarshurst Business Centre on Kinders Lane in Greenfield, moved to its current site in June 2021.
It said: “As from today (Monday, March 22) Donkeystone Brewing Co will no longer be trading.
“The current climate for breweries and the hospitality industry has proven to be insurmountable.
“The increased cost in materials and utilities along with the ongoing decline in consumer confidence has resulted in us having to close.
“This situation for us all as you can imagine is crushing. We have all put our hearts and souls into this business and met some amazing people.
“Our feelings cannot be put into words.”
