Simonds Farsons Brewery - The Grist

This new event space is set within the original shell of the 1950s brewhouse. Left in a relatively raw state, it enriches the Old Brewhouse visitor experience with a venue for culture, entertainment and more. With its own separate identity, yet strongly connected in programme to the Cisk Tap above and its roof top terrace, the adaptable stage negotiates the climb from the visitor experience below to the home of Cisk. Alone it will accommodate numerous diverse activities. Together with the Cisk Tap, it transforms into an incomparable singular venue.


Movable elements provide the flexibility for differing configurations for the hosting of a variety of new programs.
