We are long term beer drinkers (for the last 11 years for legal reasons) like most teenagers we had more than our fair share of tasteless (insert major lager brand here) often we would get wild and spice things up with an alternative import lager in an attempt to try find something more interesting as they always were.
We tried cask beer but back then it could prove to be a bit hit and miss. Looking back one of the one’s that really stood out was Oakham Citra. Suddenly there was all these awesome flavours in beer, but our obsession really took off in 2007 we had our first ever Punk IPA and this was original 6% punk quite different to punk today it was toe curling bitter with huge hoppy flavours. We remember that first sip being truly offensive, but quickly we couldn’t get enough.

Fast forward a few years to 2012, and it felt that Birmingham’s craft beer scene was really starting to take off. It was around this same time that we started trying brewing our own beers to match these iconic beers that we loved.

2013 saw Birmingham’s first ever craft beer festival – we went along to help out and were hooked. It was also the year we discovered the craft beer mecca that is Cotterridge Wines. The first time we ever walked in, our minds were blown – with wall to wall beer of every style and origin we could imagine, our brewing obsession went into overdrive. With access to loads of new styles, we scoured the internet to try and replicate them, then worked hard to perfect our own way of brewing them.

By the end of 2013, we knew for certain that beer was our future.

It’s been a long time coming, but we’re finally here, ready to make this a success and join Birmingham’s craft beer community.
