About Us

Love To Brew is owned and run by Simon Pickstock. As a keen home brewer and after being made redundant in 2012, I decided to turn my hobby into a business and open a shop. The shop opened in July 2013, initially selling home brewing supplies for beer, cider and wine makers. The business quickly grew and in December 2015, building on my love for craft beer, the shop gained a premises licence and started selling bottled and canned craft beer, produced by independent microbreweries. The beer sales rapidly took off and I am constantly looking to increase the range of beer I stock, as well as adding independently produced cider to the portfolio.

As a former journalist and editor, I take pride in being able to communicate information to beginners and experts alike. I have written a number of home brewing guides, which you will find on the site and I'm always happy to answer your questions.

Please remember that I run Love to Brew single-handedly and I'm only human! I endeavor to keep the website's stock levels accurate, but occasionally some products may be out of stock, when listed as available. I appreciate your feedback, so if you have enjoyed your experience with Love To Brew, or there is something you are not happy about, please do get in contact and let me know.
