You've had the beers... now meet the team behind them! 

INTRODUCING OUR 'WILDLING' TEAM... 
We’re going to be chatting to our lovely staff about why they got involved with Wild Beer, the beers the love and just a bit about them - keep an eye out on our social media and website stories to find out more...

Our staff are paramount and we think it’s about time you got to know us and put a face to our beers. Our team work tirelessly to produce, blend, create, plan, sell, market, troubleshoot and attend events and we want to give them the love they deserve!

If you have any questions you want to pose to our team - let us know!

Staff Spotlight

Favourite Wild Beer?
Yadokai, I would love to make more special beers like this one.

Favourite 'not Wild Beer'?
Any and all versions of Caribbean Chocolate Cake by Siren.

What got you into the brewing industry?
Fermentation. It was the only bit of science in my degree that really captured my imagination. I went on to study brewing full time and never looked back - it's pure magic.

Do you have previous experience in other breweries/similar companies?
I've been a brewer for 4 or 5 years (I've lost count!). I've travelled about a bit and brewed everything from Carling in Burton on Trent to my own recipe beer in the Channel Islands.

What's something you'd like to do at Wild Beer that we have yet to do?
I would love to brew an internal collaboration - a beer made from concept to finish by all the lovely ladies called Jane who work at Wild. There are quite a few of us now...

Got any hobbies?
I love food - I grow fruit and veggies in my garden and I like to cook, ferment or preserve them. I also enjoy hanging out with my cats and watching stand up comedy on Netflix.

Any funny (work appropriate) brewery/beer stories? ;)
;)

Would you rather fight a hundred duck sized horses or one horse sized duck?
Oh gosh neither! I'm bad at confrontation - I once had a stare-off with a swan that ended with me running away... it still haunts me.

Favourite holiday destination?
A cabin in the woods - could be anywhere as long as it's quiet, a little bit spooky and completely surrounded by nature.

One food you can't live without?
Cheese. It's hands down the greatest food-stuff known to man.

Favourite netflix series?
Good Girls.

Favourite childhood TV show?
Come Outside - Auntie Mabel and her dog Pippin go on fun (and educational!) adventures in a bad-ass polka dot plane. I quite fancy that life for myself.

Best place to go for a drink?
Our kitchen at Wild Beer HQ - you're almost guaranteed something a bit bonkers (beer or otherwise...)
