The brewery is preparing to launch the touch room of Calke Abbey

Beer lovers will enjoy a pint at Calke Abbey as soon as a new touch room opens.

The Tollgate brewery has revived a new milking parlor on the country estate near Ticknall in the new attraction.

Plans for the appropriately named milking parlor were preparing 12 months ago, but Covid-19 meant it had to take a back seat.

Jamie Traynor, director of operations at Tollgate Brewery, said: “We quickly understood that the outdoor space would be a real plus once the pubs could reopen.

“Being outside is a safer option and so we quickly looked at what parts of our original plans we could quickly bring to life.”

Overlooking the brewery itself, The Milking Parlor has more than 275 square meters of outdoor space, which will initially be the only part used.

On-site parking is available, but the brewery team is excited to encourage its customers to go to the touch room in a “green” way, by bicycle or on foot.

The Tollgate brewery produces a large variety of traditional beers from its six-barrel brewery, housed in one of the National Trust farm buildings dating back to the 19th century.

Barrel beers year-round include Ashby Pale (4.5%), Billy’s Best Bitter (4.6%) and Duffield Amber (4.4%).

Tollgate Brewery also owns The Tap at 77 Ashby and The Queens Road Tap in Leicester, as well as The Town Street Tap in Duffield, Derbyshire.

These three pubs will currently remain open only for takeaway beers, with “slow” reopening plans, according to Jamie.

You can visit The Milking Parlor from 12:00 on Saturday 4th July.
