Joule’s Brewery is pleased to announce that they will be strengthening their brewing team by the appointment of a Brewery Director.  This new role will address the requirement to invest further in the brewery and organisation as they strive to be a leading light in the craft brewing field.   Neil Bain will take up this new role at the end of July and is looking forward to meeting all Joule’s customers in the coming months.

Neil and Steve Nuttall worked together at Highgate Brewery where they led a management buyout in 1995.  Neil is an exceptional brewer and has been widely recognised for his work in the UK craft brewing scene with a formidable reputation.  At Highgate they created a diverse and interesting portfolio of cask beer including Steve’s favourite all time beer “Bains 535” which I am sure will appear as a seasonal beer at Joule’s in the near future.


Neil subsequently moved to Woodfords in Norfolk where he continued to be the architect for award winning beer and innovation.  We are delighted that he has agreed to take overall responsibility for our brewing and distribution operations


Neil, a master brewer, shares Steve Nuttall’s belief; well-balanced naturally brewed beer without compromise.  Steve commented “he is a great talent and will move our brewing capability to a new level along with Head Brewer Mark Leedham, also a master brewer.  This new appointment shows our absolute and uncompromising commitment to our beer quality of the very highest standard.  We have, since the brewery was commissioned, been improving year on year, this appointment will enable us to move to a new level both in brewing but also in our organisation as we strive to brew the finest beer and provide exemplary service”.
