Having studied microbiology at Reading University I joined Courage, Barcley, Simmonds at their Reading Brewery in 1975. In 1980 I moved to a regional brewery in Horsham Sussex, King and Barnes, and was promoted to Head Brewer in 1985. That brewery was taken over in 2000 and closed. As we had a successful production team which had won on 20 major prizes, including the overall Champion of the Great British Beer Festival and voted as one of the top ten breweries in the world, four of us set up out own brewery largely brewing and packaging beer for other brewers.

In 2016 we completed a ground up build of a new site implementing a lot of the carbon reduction actions that are now seen as vital.
