Dear loyal customer,

After seven years of hard graft, glorious triumphs, much hearty supping and a whole bundle of laughs, it’s time for me to put down my last sack of hops and say goodbye to the beer game.

Never did I imagine that my beers would be greeted with such enthusiasm and win so many awards, or that my business would grow so successfully that it would take over my life to the extent that it has.

There’s no doubt that being busy is a great situation to be in, but what was originally a one-day-a-fortnight hobby venture - albeit a tremendously enjoyable and rewarding one - has steadily grown into a full-time 24/7 job.

Therefore I am pleased to announce that I have handed over and sold the brewery as a going concern to Boudicca Brewing Company Ltd, who currently contract brew their own beers at my West Barsham premises.

From early 2017 Boudicca will take over ownership of the brewery to continue producing their own range of organic vegan beers. Like me, they are very passionate about producing great cask ale and have plans to start bottling their own beer very soon.

On a practical note I will stop trading in the New Year and as a result my beers will remain out of stock once my remaining supplies have sold out over the next few months. I apologise to those of you who have been asking me when I will be doing my next bottle run, and to whom I must have appeared somewhat vague, but I hope you’ll understand that it was difficult for me to respond when I was in the midst of making my decision.

I’m very much looking forward to a new chapter in my life and the chance to spend a little more quality time with my family.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your custom and your loyal support over the years and I look forward to seeing you in the future.
