Made the Hard Way

As a rule we don't make things easy for ourselves. We started life back in 1994 in the cellar of The Evening Star pub in Brighton with a brew kit marginally bigger that that used by an enthusiastic home brewer. Our love of American hops that has shaped the beers we've become known for, started when our Chairman, Peter Halliday, returned from a business trip across the pond with a suitcase full of hops - we all still agree that he did well to get through customs with his vegetation. We're a bit bigger than that now and use a few more hops, but the free spirited nature still very much holds true.
