“Imagine you owned a brewery. What would you name it?”
My friend Mark asked me this question one Saturday morning over coffee in my kitchen in February 2009.
“Golden Triangle” was my reply and thus the seeds were sown. The idea began to ferment in my mind and I registered Golden Triangle Brewery Ltd in September 2010.
After a three week brewing course at the marvellous Brewlab in January 2011 I started brewing in May 2011.
Golden Triangle has grown from beer to beer and strength to strength culminating in winning Gold in Golden Ales in the Champion Beer of Britain 2016 at GBBF Olympia.
Why I’m Supporting #MicroBizMattersDay
From my own experience starting an independent brewery, I know that the odds are often stacked against micro businesses from the outset. It’s only through networking and sticking together that many of us survive, and any initiative that promotes micro businesses has my support. It’s a tough world out there, but micro businesses are the fine mesh that binds everything together.
