AN INDEPENDENT brewery in Barnsley hopes to see hundreds of forgotten beer barrels back in business.

Acorn Brewery has asked 400 pubs and bars to have a look for any stray casks they have and give them to the brewery to put back into circulation.

Dave Hughes, owner of Acorn Brewery, said: “We aim to be as green and sustainable a business as possible and don’t like to think of them sitting there not being put to good use carrying our beer."

When they come back in to the brewery, they are washed, sterilised and refilled with prime real ale to return to the pubs with a shelf-life of four to five weeks.
