Our head brewer, Daryl, learnt the brewing trade in the Blue Mountains of Australia, bringing back a wealth of knowledge and enthusiasm after an eventful year of travelling down under.
Things started small, a tiny 100 litre system produced our initial batches, barely enough to fill 2 casks a time! We outgrew this almost overnight, setting about building a bigger, more refined system a few months down the line.
Our brewing process has always been very hands on, with manually controlled pumps and valves - not a computer in sight!
Fast forward to 2020 and we are finishing the final details on our new, shiny brew house - a 1000 litre behemoth, with just a few automated features to help with consistency and keep things running smoothly.
