Mitchell Krause Brewing wants to convert a vacant agricultural building on Calva Farm into the brewery.

The brewery was set up in 2009 by Graeme Mitchell and his ales are currently brewed in Cheshire and bottled in Cockermouth.

He wants to turn the old building at his parents’ farm into a permanent base for his firm.

Mr Mitchell said that if permission was granted, work could start before the end of the year and he would start brewing in the spring.

It would offer appointment-only tours, there would be a shop and four parking spaces. The new brewery would create two jobs.

He said: “We have been trading for three years in Workington and our business is already established.

“I was encouraged to go for this opportunity, by the reaction and positive feedback I’ve had for my beers, from customers and at local festivals such as Nuts in May, Solfest and Oktoberfest.

“The time is right now to build our own small but perfectly formed brewery, which will produce quality and crafted beers.”
