The idea of setting up a microbrewery in the area was formed by Shane Parr.
Shane is an Australian who has had a keen interest in brewing since he was 16. He developed his love of British cask beers shortly after arriving in the UK in 2000. So much so, that he was reluctant to return down under to his native Tooheys and VB and instead he found himself a Welsh wife, Alison, and settled near Oswestry. After full mash home-brewing for a couple of years, Shane was encouraged to follow his dreams of setting up a microbrewery after receiving favourable comments about his home-brew. Also, Alison wanted her kitchen back.
Several years later, following a huge amount of hard work and much appreciated help from friends and family, the brewery was created. Helping Shane ensure that the brewery functions smoothly are Alison, father-in-law, Iain Reid and brother-in-law, Innes Reid.
Our aim is to produce good, consistent quality beers, using traditional recipes and methods.
