John Shepherd has been home brewing for many years and he had been running a video production company for ten years when, in 2013, he and a friend decided to set up, from scratch, a craft brewery.
Not coming from a brewing industry background, the only thing they knew about the market prior to setting up the brewery was that people like different types of beers and so that was their goal: to produce a beer for everyone and anyone, but always of the absolute best quality.
From lagers to stouts, bitters to pale ales, they believed that whatever your taste; everyone deserves a good beer.
Six years on, having won a number of awards and sold lots of different beers, John stepped back from the brewery on a day to day basis to focus on writing. He is working on other "how to" guides as well as a screenplay, a book of short stories and has successfully submitted comedy material to the BBC.
