Craig studied Malting, Brewing and Distilling science in Edinburgh, Scotland. He has since worked in several micro breweries in the UK and also for an independent malt whisky bottler. A bona fide flavour junky, he was naturally attracted to La Belle France where he worked for a few years in Burgundian wineries before settling with his French wife and family in the countryside about an hour north of Paris.
He aims to brew food-friendly, full-flavoured beers and has already had considerable success introducing them to wine-dominated, gastronomic restaurants in the French capital and the growing number of 'cave à bières' and speciality beer bars.
To get the business up and running he used the ultra-scientific, quality-driven de Proef brewery in Belgium and still uses, for the moment, this extraordinary brewery for the production of the first three creations; Agent Provocateur, Cuvée d'Oscar and Psychedelia. A brewery installation in the French farm-house where he lives was completed in June 2015 where new beers are being developed..
