New brewery breaks cover

It’s not very often we get to herald the emergence of a new brewery, but we welcome the Dead Weight Brewery to the area. The brewery began as a home brewing hobby between two friends, David Tomkins and Dale Punnett, in mid-2019 who wanted to recreate the exciting flavours of the craft beers they drank and experiment with a multitude of ingredients.

The brewery has a nautical theme which stems from a joint naval heritage, Dale’s father was a Royal Navy Chief Petty Officer and David’s family come from a long line of Jamaican sea captains.

Their current 65 litre nano-brewery is ideally suited to small batch production, but they have big ambitions for the future and hope to be able to step up to a 5 BBL (brewery barrel) plant in the near future. Their current range includes a Pilsner, New England Pale Ale, a Hefeweizen, IPA, DIPA, TIPA and an Imperial Stout.


There are a number of committee roles that we would like to appoint - Pubs officer(s), Brewery Liaison Officer(s), Magazine sub-editor and Pub protection officer.

There are also openings for Magazine distributors – to deliver the branch magazine in
(i) Stockingford area (Royal Oak, White Lion, Miners Arms, Sunnyside).
(ii) Hartshill / Chapel End area (Malt Shovel, Plough, Salutation, Windmill etc.)
(iii) Bulkington area (Weston Hall, Olde Chequers & Weavers Arms
