"Artisan Ales" is the name given to our tiny micro brewery located just outside Mnchinhampton near Stroud in Gloucestershire. It is run by husband, wife and dog team Jon, Sarah & Monty.

Jon is the brewer and has been a professional brewer for over 14 years. Although his previous career as a Software/Systems Engineer designing Head Up Display and Head Down Display Systems for Military Aircraft now seems a life-time away, the same care and attention to detail that he used to develop safety critical avionic systems with, is now used to develop 'tasty critical' beer!

Q: Has he won any awards?

A: Just a few..."Best Bitter in West of England and Wales", "Champion Beer of Gloucestershire", "Beer of the Festival - South Downs Beer Festival" and several CAMRA Golds and Silvers along the way.

Sarah is a chartered Landscape Architect but still finds time to help out in the brewery with sales, bottling and deliveries.

Monty is our border terrier and is in charge of security and meeting and greeting customers.
