Sometimes it's the little things that make a difference

... in this case a rather big, heavy 6mm steel plate, but it's made such a difference!

Before our mate, Hotrod builder Owen, made this behemoth for us we literally couldn't get pallets in and out of the door due to the knackered tarmac and step, as can be seen here (which is a lot worse than it looks, believe me) ...

It wasn't simply a matter of concreting up the holes as we roll casks out of the door to the coldstore and they would have demolished the concrete in a matter on months (as they have done the current floor!) and tarmac isn't strong enough either.  So, after a bit of thought, we asked Owen if he could make us a steel ramp which he did, powder coated it and even cut hand holds into it!  It weighs a massive amount, mind you, but at least now we can wheel pallets in and out of the brewery meaning we don't have to handball a tonne of malt off one pallet, through the door, then precariously stack it onto another one now, plus we'll be able to build pallets of beer inside during the summer when it's just too hot outside.  Result!
