2012 we started with a Sheffield pub the Fox & Duck in Broomhill and followed this in 2014 with the Doctor’s Orders on Glossop Rd. We’d always had a love for cask across the pubs and whilst on holiday having the odd shandy came up with the brilliant idea of opening a microbrewery and serving our own quality ales.
So first things first we started home brewing, buying little packets of hop, grain and yeast goodness, getting the kettle on and learning the ropes on a small scale. Wow this brewing is addictive. An odd splurge of wort here, trip over the dog with the mash on the way to the bin there. We were soon knocking out some pretty tasty brews but the kitchen needed a break. Plan in hand off to the bank then.
