Brasserie Craig Allan • France
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 in France. His beers have also been well received abroad as more and more people around the world catch onto the richness and diversity of craft beer.
