Toby was commended for overseeing the development of our brand new brewery from design and commission to build and full operation – whilst all the while continuing to produce our delicious Badger Ales – now who says men can’t multi-task?!!
Our top boy Toby was also top of his year at Heriot Watt in 1997 and since that point he hasn’t looked back His brewing career started with a US micro brewery before leading him onto join Bass Brewers where he went from the maltings to work in four of their breweries and qualify as a Master Brewer in 2002.
Four years later he handed in his notice to pursue his dream with us at Hall & Woodhouse where he became our youngest ever Head Brewer in 2009 – a great decision all round!
This year Toby was given the ‘once in a brewers lifetime’ opportunity to design and build a new brewery and for a time ran both brewhouses – which he did so successfully that he won this award!
Well done Toby – here’s to the next hundred years!
