This Sunday saw West Ham Women emerge as eventual winners of a nail-biting, thrill-packed FA Women’s Cup semi-final against Reading Women, away at Adams Park.
Drawing 1-1 after extra-time, the game went all the way to a shootout – with a cool final kick by South Korean international Cho So-hyun sparking a celebratory stampede of team-mates (above) and riotous celebrations among the impressive West Ham away contingent.
West Ham Women now face Manchester City Women at a Wembley final.
We’ll be there cheering them on – and you can follow the ongoing story of our inaugural season in the Women’s Super League on Britain’s Youngest Football Boss, after Match of the Day every Saturday night.
NicheSolutions are proud sponsors and suppliers of beer to West Ham Women.

With the news that Nottingham Ale Yeast has undergone huge price increases of up to 23%, more and more brewers are giving our premium, low-cost Trent Fermo-Ale Yeast a try.

Our state-of-art laboratories are equipped to provide you with fast and reliable analysis of your beers and water – no more waiting for results, wasting valuable time.
Results will be provided within five working days of our lab’s receipt of your sample. They will include analysis of all the key variables in any brew, along with other specialist data. Our popular 4-point beer test covers the main requirements.

Further testing available on request, including: Colour EBC; water analysis; gluten testing (UKAS) accredited; and further specialist tests for mould, wild yeast and bacteria.

What will you receive in return?
Initially, we will acknowledge by email the safe receipt of your sample. Within five working days of receiving your sample, our lab will email their analysis, presented on a form similar to the example below. It really couldn’t be simpler – or quicker!
ENZYBREW 10 is an all-in-one, eco-friendly cleaning product from Realzyme, available now from NicheSolutions.
Specially designed for the daily cleaning of microbrewery equipment, it’s an enzyme-based powdered detergent rather than a traditional caustic-based cleaning solution.
We think it will prove popular with brewers because it’s an environmentally friendly, all-in-one detergent, cutting your costs as it works on biofilms as well as all the organic residues encountered during the production of beer.
— ENZYBREW 10 is ideal for the deep, safe cleaning of filter plates, wort cooler and maturation, boiling and fermentation tanks.
— As a natural, non-caustic detergent, it’s safe to use alongside other cleaning products such as those which contain chlorine.
— And because it works at much lower temperatures, it’s more energy efficient.

One of the biggest challenges faced by the brewing/ beverage industry is environmental sustainability. Here at NicheSolutions, we’re promoting new ways to do business by investing in innovative, energy-efficient projects with low impact on the environment.
Our Nc6/Nc4 can holders are just one new, cost-effective way for brewers to make a difference – and they’re already proving popular. The UK’s first 100% eco-friendly six-pack holders are made from 100% recycled wood pulp, which in turn is 100% biodegradable. We’re proud to say they have earned the prestigious DIN CERTO certificate of compostability.
Whether you’re a brewer producing cans of beer or a consumer drinking them, it surely makes sense to stop using plastic can holders. Why add needlessly to the planet’s mounting plastic waste problem, and create a long-term threat to the environment, to birds and sealife?
Even beyond the problem of landfill sites and oceans filling up with plastic, the old-fashioned plastic 6-pack holders pose an extra hazard to birds and animals. That’s why many consumers now snip them with scissors before disposal.
NicheSolutions’ new Nc6 and Nc4 six/four-pack can holders fit 330cl, 440cl and 500cl cans, and are priced at only 23p each. Ask about the can holders when you’re placing your next order!
We’re pleased to announce that Niche are now suppliers of UniKegs – enabling you to source all of your kegs from our one-stop shop for brewery essentials.

They won’t appear on our website product lists until the end of this month, but UniKegs can now be added to any order – prices available on application.
