About Us

The two directors (Gareth Shaw and Richard Billington) are both committed to quality of product and customer service, and have both been involved in the famous ''Monkey Club'' in Armitage Bridge, Huddersfield. Together they have brought the club from a keg and single cask establishment, to being the Huddersfield CAMRA club of the season in Spring 2007, the Huddersfield CAMRA club of the year in 2008, and an entrant in the Good Beer Guide for 2009. In addition the club regularly serves 3 guest beers, and holds the annual ''Monkeyfest'' beer festival. which after only two years is regularly described as amongst the best beer festivals in the North of England.

We have recruited what we believe to be the top consultants in Britain to help ensure the taste and quality are to the standards we expect - Mr Paul Buttrick, former head brewer at Boddingtons and Stella Artois, who now sits on the beer competition judging panels world wide, and Mr David Corbey, brewing expert and ''hop head'' of Stones, Leatherbritches, Kelham Island and Thornbridge Hall.
