Meet The Team

We’d like to say something poignant or emotional, along the lines of – ‘we have as much fun producing the beers as you have drinking them’ – but that might possibly cause offence to some of our drinkers and certainly the lads and lasses at the brewery.

Crack of dawn starts – shift brews – cask washing – mash tun cleaning – deliveries in the driving rain. All good fun, but not quite the same as savouring a pint of the latest IPA in the Old No 7.That doesn’t mean to say that we don’t enjoy ourselves doing what we do down here in the depths of South Yorkshire, after all laughter is an essential ingredient in brewing great beers. We’ve a terrific bunch of hard working people all proud to be producing Acorn’s finest.
