In 2011 three friends, with considerable experience in the brewing industry, decided that they would set up a new brewery.
Tom Knox had been head brewer at a well respected brewery on the Essex / Suffolk border. He brings 24 years experience in crafting beers that linger in the memory long after the glass has been drained.
Roger Clark has 35 years of experience in bringing cask ales to the drinking public, and runs the sales team.
Andy Bone has run a number of businesses over the past thirty years including being MD of a brewery; he serves as Chairman and company secretary. Despite being a scion of the Watney brewing dynasty, Andy is a dedicated fan of cask ales, and has promised not to reintroduce the Party 7!
A lot of hard work saw the creation of the Viaduct Brewhouse, at Wakes Colne Business Centre, just north of the Chappel viaduct. All the stakeholders wanted to create the best possible brewery with beers to be proud of. The first brew - aptly named No.1 - was ready for sale by February 2012.
Our range of brews is now increasingly available in the area and we are supplying beer festivals whenever we can!
