I've been seeing a lot of oast houses recently while on my travels. Annoyingly, I haven't managed to take photos of these interesting buildings. I did have more luck in Burton, with the huge industrial silos attached to the breweries.
To be honest, I'm a bit hazy as to exactly what these things are actually for,looking at this handy graphic:
and reading the associated blog, I'm still confused. Since this is a Coors brewery and therefore they are probably producing lager, I'm not convinced they are doing anything useful at all.
Modelling them would need some shiny material and judging by the photos below, some hefty rust streaks.
