The seed for North Union Brewing Co was planted when founder Iain Kenny took a job in an off license at 16 years old. Intrigue soon ignited a passion as he started to wonder what the differences were with different beers and styles. A bit of research and a few homebrew attempts later he was off to Heriot Watt University to study Brewing and Distilling.
After four years of study he returned to his home town of Sheffield where he took a job at the near-by Kelham Island Brewery where after two years he became Head Brewer. As well as experienced gained in the UK, Iain has travelled well throughout the world of craft beer taking trips to New York, Belgium and Germany.
Having left employment, Iain has used this experience and exciting new techniques viewed on his travels to form North Union Brewing Co a medium to share his passion for quality craft beer. To start with our introductory range of bottled beers designed to excite and challenge the taste buds of craft beer drinkers.
North Union is about a journey from our small, simple beginnings cuckoo brewing at nearby Harthill Brewery. We invite you to share our journey with us by enjoying our beer and following what we get up to.
