About Old Spot

Old Spot was the late farm sheep dog that used to live outside the brewery and lived to a happy old 21 years of age. He still lives on in our logo.

Our first brew was in August 2005 and when we tried it, we just knew we had to share it with the world!

Old Spot Brewery is a limited company with four equal partners consisting of:
• Chris Thompson, who looks after the brewery and does the brewing.
• Julian Hargreaves, who is in charge of sales and mending things when they break.
• Robert & Ann Chris’s parents who supply our premises, pick up malt orders, help with mash stirring and whatever else comes up.
