Sam Till

Brewer

Sam Till

Sam had no idea of what career path he'd take in his adult life so he did what any self-respecting graduate does - delay the inevitable and travel instead.

After working at summer camps in the US for two years and copious visits to various craft breweries, the thought of being paid to make beer seemed pretty appealing.

Initially starting out at Bowness Bay Brewing, a local cask ale brewery in the Lake District, he then joined Brewpoint in September as an Assistant Brewer.

Jon Slate

After years of travelling the world, working and managing bars, restaurants, cafes and even a BnB, Jon realised that he didn’t like customers/people anymore and that it was ageing him like fine milk, so he decided to study so he could hide behind the mystical and magical doors between the taproom and the brewery.
