Historic brewery to re-open

A former brewery in Northampton is to be brought back into use with the creation of 20 new jobs.

Phipps beer, which was brewed in Northampton from 1817 to 1972, is set for a return to the former Ratliffe and Jeffery Albion Brewery in Kingswell Street.

The company has been brewing its beer at the Grainstore Brewery in Oakham since its relaunch in 2008 but now needs bigger facilities.
