Business Business Insurance Brewery Insurance

Whether new or established, large or small, it’s in your best interest to ensure your brewery is fully covered. With microbreweries springing up all over the UK, there are varying requirements for each and every brewery.

Speaking to an expert makes perfect sense to understand your requirements and structure a package.

  • Cover for microbrewery start-ups right up to full-scale commercial breweries
  • Liability cover included as standard
  • Property and stock in the open
  • Wide cover of stock away from business premises
