    Paul’s love of beer started as soon as he had his first pint!

    Talking over a beer with his Dad’s was surely the start of Hillside Brewery. It is Paul that is in charge of all things Hillside and has taken this lovely little brewery and put it on the big stage.

    When not doing beer tasting, brewing, selling, marketing or delivering you will find at his desk with his dog (Nala) not too far away.

      Peter has been the driving force in getting all the facilities up to scratch. The team love his eye for detail and his ability to appear at just the right moment (no they don’t!!). Now the new barn is finished he will be handing over all the reins to Paul. Perhaps he will be like old Mr Grace and just come in on Friday to tell us all how well we are doing!

          Jo is the admin master at Hillside and keeps the guys in line, which has been described as being similar to herding cats. If theres a spider in the office, the role of pest control will quickly be delegated out or if no one is around her running skills will be put into action.

              The biggest distraction in a brewery apart from the beer. You will normally find her prancing around the shop with a toy or running around the 40-acre farm.
