Buffy’s Beer at ARTBF15

| March 15, 2015

titleBuffy's was originally going to be called the Mardle Hall Brewery, but complaints from another brewery led to the change to Buffy's, after a former resident of Mardle Hall, who liked his beer.
The brewery is run by Head Brewer Roger Abrahams and his partner Julie Savory – Roger is a home brewer of 25 years standing who worked for Norwich Union but had long dreamt of brewing commercially. Duncan Walker is the Brewery Manager.
Julie, a piano tuner, was so impressed when she tried a pint of Roger's beer after tuning his piano that the two married. Roger threw in his job and, after a year sourcing the equipment for the brewery, the first firkins were sold in November 1993.
Julie still tunes pianos occasionally but says that brewing is more lucrative: 'in the time it takes to tune one piano, you can sell 50 firkins', she says. The brewery is working flat out to meet orders and intends to start bottling its beers (when there is time!).
Visitors are welcome any time throughout the year by prior arrangement, except for December. A tour of the brewery costs £5 per person; disabled visitors and children are welcome.
