Lets face it, your not going to buy our beer based on what you read here, your only going to buy it because youʼve tried it before, or someone has recommended it to you. But just in case your interested, or more likely bored at work and killing time between meetings:
I started brewing as a hobby one day, canʼt remember why now, but it was fun and the initial results were passable. Slowly but surely the hobby started to take up increasingly large amounts of my time and before I knew it I was experimenting and brewing most weekends. Over several beers with friends I semi-jokingly came up with the name RedWillow Brewery based on our children’s middle names our eldestʼs is Willow a reference to, I am ashamed to admit, Buffy the Vampire Slayer and for some reason we let our daughter pick our sonʼs middle name she chose Red (at least it wasnʼt pink!).
Possibly bought on through a mid life crisis or the need to indulge my passion I embarked upon a war of attrition to convince my (considerably) better half that my oft mentioned idea of setting up a Microbrewery was the way forward. Luckily for me, she agreed, in fact pretty much straight away, so the much rehearsed orations never had a chance to be aired.
So in July 2010 we decided to go for it, with the overriding objective of producing beers that we want to drink, full of ﬂavour, with passion and without compromise, lets see how it goes.
