A Little Downham man is hoping to transform his hobby into his job by changing two garden sheds into a micro-brewery business.
Clifford Roberts, of Matthew Wren Close, plans to develop his two 10 foot by eight foot sheds from home brewing to become a small scale business.
He said the house is “elevated from the road, therefore the sheds are virtually hidden from view to passers-by.
“Visitors will be by appointment-only and most people will be members of the East Anglia Brewing Association and CAMRA or craft ale enthusiasts who will attend a small tour and educational presentation and tasting (no more than the legal limit).”
Mr Roberts has already secured a premises licence to allow drinking on the premises with only pre-booked visitors being able to purchase bottle craft ales.

A pre-planning application given to East Cambs District Council states “this operation will cause minimal disturbance to the neighbours.
“It should not result in an unacceptable increase in traffic and noise, there will be minimal odour and waste as a result of this small scale operation.

“The garden is sloping with no steps therefore resulting in minimum noise from moving the goods, there is little waste with water being filtered and drained away, and spent grain delivered to local chicken/egg farms to be used as feed” it adds.
“Any deliveries will be dropped off locally by the applicant, or delivered in bulk to a third party depot for onward transmission, therefore avoiding multiple collections and deliveries.”
The report details that the cost of the craft ale is “expensive and will most likely only appeal to enthusiasts”.
