The PROPS Brewery team spent the day visiting new friends at Ivybridge Brewery in South Devon. Ivybridge was created with the aim of employing adults with learning difficulties in their local area, the same mission that is at the heart of our own brewery project here at PROPS.
Our ultimate goal is to create a successful Enterprise that offers employment opportunities for lots of our trainees, with a variety of skill sets.
At the visit, PROPS trainees helped with the bottling, caping and packaging of two Ivybridge beers and got a real sense of what jobs would need to be undertaken in the future here at our own brewery project.
It was a real pleasure to see the incredible work underway at Ivybridge and inspiring to see what can be done on a small scale to make great tasting beer with a socially conscious message, something that we at PROPS are striving for.
We can’t wait to return the favour and have the Ivybridge team visit us in Bristol to show them what we’re all about.
Ivybridge Brewing Company are a social enterprise addressing the disability employment gap – Based on the southern edge of Dartmoor in rural Devon, Ivybridge Brewing Company is a social enterprise brewery that aims to provide jobs and training opportunities for people with learning disabilities. Our model is simple: the more beers we sell, the more jobs we create. Read more about Ivybridge here.
