The Team

As a small business, every member of our tight-knit brewery team is multi-skilled. We love sharing new ideas and are passionate about what we create.

Pat has always believed that he can teach anyone to brew and that anyone who wants to learn should be given the chance to do so. Therefore, we have many people in the business who are brewers, taking responsibility for new recipes.
