Our first brew, First Light, is underway!

Remember remember the 5th of November…because that’s the day the first batch of First Light was brewed!

Hops go inThe day finally arrived and many months of blood sweat and beers. On the morning of November 5th, when most people were thinking of fireworks and bonfires, a dream of mine finally came true:

Our first batch of First Light was underway!

The fermenting has taken place, the dry hopping has been done.

The first 20 hectolitres has now been racked and will be ready to drink/distribute on Monday 23rd. Keep your eyes peeled for First Light in the best watering holes in Sheffield and Cheshire initially. As time goes on we plan to spread further afield so feel free to contact us if you would like to get your hands on some.

First Light being put into casks


We’ll be supplying First Light in 9 gallon casks, 4.5 gallon casks/pins and in 500 ml bottles (from 26th November).

casksFirst Light is a very moreish American pale ale made from Liberty hops. It’s exactly the type of beer that my Dad and I love to drink due to it’s smooth easy drinking style and delicate hoppy flavour. Here at The Brew Foundation we plan to bring out a full range of beers in various styles but we hope you enjoy our first beer.First Light in Cask

The Brew Foundation launches

It’s been a long time coming but it’s finally time. After many years of enjoying drinking different types of beers my dad Robert and I took the plunge and decided to brew our beers to our own tastes. We both have love for a great real ale, and I am also a fan of hoppy craft beers. We set up The Brew Foundation with the aim of creating the type of beers we both love, in the hope that you love them too.

All our beers will be very quaffable, as for us “drinkability” is key; whatever the beer style we believe that a good flavour balance is the most important part of a great beer.

Our first brew will be an American pale ale called First Light. It’s a very drinkable pale ale brewed using Liberty hop, natural spring water, American yeast and then dry hopped with even more Liberty.

Keep your eyes peeled for First Light in pubs, bars and bottle shops in Sheffield (where I live) and in Cheshire (where my dad Robert lives).
