Meet The Team

Meet Pete -

Mr Amber Ales.


Tired of bland, corporate beers designed for the masses Pete is on a mission to brew the perfect pint. A passionate devotee of the hop and grain, combined with a degree in Chemical Engineering he is at his happiest experimenting in the brewery kitchen at Amber Ales.

Band: The Ramones; Underworld (now listens to: Radio Four!)
Current Book: Tricky... Mich Steele - IPA, evolution of India Pale Ale (inspirational with great recipes), Checkov short stories (makes me smile) and Beer Advocate Magazine ( - still fab!
Beer: Double IPA of course, although Imperial IPA runs it a close second; Dogfish Head 60 minute IPA, better than the 90 IMHO. But better on draft (sic) too...
Often heard saying: 'drink beer, be happy'.

JaynMeet Jayn - the wife.

With a background in beer drinking and illustrious career in marketing, she tries to keep us on the straight and narrow whilst secretly planning her own range of botanical ales.

Best ever gig: The Clash at The Assembly Rooms
Film: Moulin Rouge
Beer: a close call between our Jasmine IPA or a Harpoon Raspberry Heferwessien at Legal Seafoods, yum!

YouMeet Angus - the farmer

He has lots of happy cows full of Amber Ales brewer's mash.
