A look back on 2019 - our first year brewing
Unbelievably, that's pretty much our first year done. Lot's of hard work, but so worth it and really feel like what we're doing from our little base in Devon is starting to be noticed and pick up some momentum. Can't say enough how grateful we are for all of you that have taken a chance on us and whose feedback has shaped what we do and how we do it. Here's to big things in 2020! Here's our highlights;
10/2018 – First ever ‘Big brew’ of Monkey Buffet on our new 200ltr @Speidel Braumeister ‘Brunhilde’. Feels a big step up from our previous 20ltr Braumeister. Many Hands is in production!
