Joseph Thomson

A love of the beer industry led Joe Thomson to convince a local in the pub where he was working to help finance and set up a brewery in 2008. At the time Joe was one of the youngest brewers in the country, and over the 5 years since then has led Penpont Brewery to develop a wide range of beers, with an ever increasing reputation, including winning regional SIBA gold awards in 2011 and 2012. Recently Joe has developed an on-going rotating range of specials inspired by the incredible variety of flavours to be found in beer. These include abbey style beers, those using alternative ingredients such as juniper or orange as well as showcases of various beer styles such as IPA's and milds.
