Most people just see the happy end product, but it is hard all-year round work, cold water misery in the winter and has become a 7 day a week job.

On the plus side there is the reward of seeing my beer on the handpull next to the likes of Timothy Taylor's 'Landlord'. Or a shout across the street "Cracking pint of yours last night at the Queens".

After being made redundant and being given (very!) early retirement, I had the opportunity to do nothing or a job I enjoyed.

I successfully did nothing for a few months, but boredom crept in.

I had homebrewed since my twenties and for years had thought about a microbrewery.

In 2002 I started looking for premises and finally got lucky with a local farm that was converting a barn for light industrial use.

Did I make the right move?

Just about.

 

Available both cask conditioned and bottle conditioned

Traditionally brewed beers from the heart of rural staffordshire
