Beer Business to Beat Boredom

Two Solihull Upper Sixth students have spent their time during lockdown developing a positive initiative for pubs.

Jack Talbot and Guy Tomlinson have set up a business to create extra seating for beer gardens – from excess kegs.

Jack, aged 17, said: “We became bored at home and came up with the idea to turn beer kegs into seats to increase capacity of outdoor areas in pubs when they reopen and throughout the summer. We approached Silhill Brewery Ltd who kindly loaned some products to kick-start our project.”

Guy, aged 18, added: “We’ve self-funded the materials for the toppers which we’ve been making at home. Each whole seat costs just £15. We’re receiving lots of enquiries and sales are increasing daily - we’ve even had an order from a venue in Yorkshire.”

Both young men live in Solihull and are A Level Business Studies students at Solihull.
