Meet the Team

Next in our series where we introduce you to the people behind the beers, it’s the turn of Christie – Quality Manager here as well as the chap most likely to give you a glimpse behind the scenes on our social media channels or tell you about our beers at a Meet the Brewer event!

First up, the basics! What’s your name and where do you come from?

Christie, Huddersfield

What is your role at Abbeydale Brewery?

Quality Manager (brewer with a calculator)

What’s your favourite beer style and why?

I’ve got simple taste with beer, can’t go wrong with easy drinking cask pales or a pint of lager (with or without a lemonade top). In terms of a single beer though, I often really crave a pint of Acorn Barnsley Bitter. But saying that my favourite beers to make are IPA’s.

What’s your favourite thing about working at Abbeydale Brewery?

It’s a manual job where I get to use my hands with a sprinkling of creativity.

Best place to enjoy a pint?

Rutland Arms (Sheffield city centre)

Where did you have your first (legal!) pint?

The Nook in Holmfirth

Favourite snack to enjoy alongside a beer?

Those jalapeno pretzel piece things, or a pork pie.

When you’re not making beer, what do you get up to?

I’ve got a very needy allotment!

Who’s your hero (beery or otherwise!)?

Patrick Swayze in Roadhouse

And finally… If you were a cartoon character, who would it be?
