The story of where it

All began

30 December

From small acorns

Once upon a time there was a young-ish man having a pint of ale in Winchcombe, Cheltenham; complaining bitterly about how bad it was and how he could do better.

His friend said that there was no way he could make a better beer as these guys know what they are doing and you don’t. Not being one to walk away from a challenge, a wager was made and the man bought some homebrew kit and started practising making beer.

Becoming a brewer

Six months later, the same man was lucky enough to walk into a pub where the Landlord was selling his brewery equipment, a few pints later a deal had been struck to purchase said kit but on the condition he taught the man how to brew.
