Quotes from Greg Pilley

“I started the brewery because it gives me a purpose and sense of place. Hearing people reminiscing about the old Stroud Brewery and the impact it had on local life fuels my enthusiasm to see the new Stroud Brewery equally embedded into local life”
“Brewing a local beer is one thing, but brewing it using locally grown barley really sets it apart. Cotswolds farmers produce amongst the highest quality malting barleys in the UK and our brewery together with Warminster are the links in the chain that connect local drinkers with their local farms and the characteristic landscape they create.”
