A BARNSLEY brewery has refreshed its branding to stand out from the crowd and mark its 12th anniversary.

Acrorn Brewery has also announced it will spend £60,000 on new brewing equipment and office speace.

Dave Hughes, owner of Acorn Brewery said: “We have been trading for 12 years now and have not changed our branding over that time, but feel the time is right for a refresh now.

“The brewing industry has changed a lot since we started in the summer of 2003 and, particularly in the last six years or so.

"There are now many more independent brewers out there and it is much more important to have a clear stand-out identity at the pumps and on the supermarket shelf.”
