Neil Thomas


Favourite Beer: Sauvin Saison

Brewery Manager & Director, manages all things brewing and beer related.

Where there is beer, there is Neil. Never without his moleskein of recipes and with a firm grip on current hop prices Neil took over brewing from Tom in 2010 continuing our main range, and soon after launched our END showcase range. Before the trend for highly hopped, international beer styles hit the market Neil made the beer and the demand followed. As the first micro brewery in the North East to produce 'craft' kegged beer Tom, Neil & Ric never rest on their laurels or accept the average. We like this about them. 

Outside of work Neil tries to pretend he's not thinking about beer or checking the work Twitter by going biking, cheffing up a banquet or walking the dog.

Where to Find: If you knew what he was wearing it would make the 50/50 choice obsolete. If he's just in a t-shirt and jeans he's in the office ordering very expensive hops and researching alpha acids and extraction rates. If he's wearing a wooly hat, t-shirt and jeans he's in the cold hop store sniffing the options for his next recipe.
