Who are we?

We are Derby’s local multi award winning craft brewer with an award winning beer across every beer style & numerous industry awards for our business acumen.

We see a growing pub estate as a crucial part of our growth plans, having purchased & fully renovated our first pub The Tap, which we received Derby CAMRA city pub of the year 2009 & a civic award for the restoration project. It has since been repositioned as a specialist beer & spirit house. We have also purchased and renovated our second pub The Greyhound pub in Friar Gate, Derby. Located on the opposite side of the City the Greyhound is an iconic Derby pub, found in the heart of Derby’s bustling City Centre. The Greyhound has also been a great success nominated as best newcomer in Derby’s Food & Drink awards and has recently received a civic award for our restoration project. 

In addition to our two successful city centre pubs we have our first destination village pub, The Queens Head, Little Eaton. We have carried out a full renovation of the pub, we have created a great pub in the heart of the village.
