Here are just some of the policy features we can arrange for your brewery or micro brewery;

Public liability

Public liability covers you should you be faced with a claim from a member of the public. For example, if you conduct tours around your brewery and a member of the tour injures themselves due to your fault, public liability cover will reimburse your business for legal expenses and the cost of the compensation itself.

Cover your goods when exporting to the EU

We can easily include goods in transit cover within the UK. Equally, If your beer/bier/cerveza is going down well in Europe, we can extend cover to include transit within EU countries. If you plan on sending your beer even further, we can look at including this too.

Insurance for micro breweries

As a micro brewery, your equipment and recipe is key to your success. Our brewery insurance covers businesses large and small against loss of equipment and stock through theft or accidental damage. We can also cover your continuing fixed costs if you’re unable to keep trading following a loss. If you’re planning to expand please pick up the phone and let us know how. We’ll be able to cover you for some aspects of your business regardless but we’ll need to know about additions to your sums insured to keep you covered appropriately.

Products recall cover

We hope it doesn’t happen that often (or at all!) but if you need to recall a batch of your product, we can cover the loss incurred by having to recover your products. This includes lost stock and loss incurred from the logistics involved in getting your products back/disposed of. In this instance, we can only cover what you tell us you produce. So, if you start making a new product, be sure to update your cover.

These are just some of the key features and exclusions, full details will be found in your policy wording. Show policy documents

Breweries Insurance FAQs

How many staff can I employ?

We don’t limit the number of staff our brewery insurance includes. Just make sure you tell us how many you employ and your annual wage roll when you set up your policy. Keep us informed as your business grows and we’ll grow your policy with it.

Can you insure a pub under the same policy?

Yes we can. As long as the pub is a subsidiary of your brewing company.

Can you cover operations under railway arches?

Yes we can. Some insurers are quite restrictive in terms of the type of structure they’ll cover. We however, can cover almost any premises type from craft breweries to large mass producing units.

Will my health and safety standards affect my cover?

There is a possibility that your cover will be ineffective if you do not meet the relevant health and safety requirements. If you employ five people or less the law requires you to have fewer practices in place however, if you employ six or more people you will have to conduct risk assessments and you could face a fine if you do not have these in place. If you’re uncertain as to what’s required of your business, please visit www.hse.gov.uk

Is the financial rating of an insurer an important factor?

As the system measures an insurer’s financial situation, allowing you to predict their ability to meet ongoing policy obligations, it is an important factor.

Also, there are a number of main contractors that will not sub-contract works to any companies not insured with an insurer with a minimum of an A-financial rating (as determined by established ratings companies).

If you have any concerns about whether this may affect your business or have any questions around the rating of an insurer speak with one of our advisors.
