With over 30 years brewing experience, including many years running his own brewery (Bazens’ Brewery) in Salford with his wife Jude, Richard brings together all the elements required to create brilliant beers right here in Byker.
Stew is our Lead Brewer which means he does the day to day brewing and managing of our brewery. It’s a tough job, that requires precision, dedication, passion, and hard work. Without all of this, our beer wouldn’t be as good as it is.
Natasha started as an apprentice and is now working in the brewery daily, using her new found knowledge and passion for brewing to help create our brilliant beers.
