Briarbank Head Brewer – Rob Pyke
Rob has been brewing for over 10 years. He started home brewing while he was at university, at the age of 18. A lover of dark beers, Rob’s first-ever homebrew was a Porter, but that hasn’t stopped him from crafting a great range of paler beers too.
After being hooked on brewing from that very first creation and always open to experimenting with different flavours and techniques, Rob started to create his own beer recipes and combinations. He even made his own equipment for the job!
Since landing his dream job at Briarbank, Rob loves the freedom he has to try new flavours and create his beers, and he enjoys nothing better than seeing them being enjoyed by the customers in our bar. Over the past 12 months, Rob has been hard at work in the brewery, brewing, bottling and labelling our core range to bring the Briarbank’s creations to our customer’s homes. Plus, if you live within the ten-mile free delivery radius, he’ll even deliver them straight to your door.
Please note, to ensure the safety of our customers and staff, due to the small size of our first floor tap room we have decided not to reopen the bar at this moment in time. We will continue to review guidelines, and further updates will be published on our social media pages.
