NEW HEAD BREWER APPOINTED

We are proud to announce the Head Brewer role has now been filled by Ryan Truswell.

He started with us back in December and has already shown his knowledge of the brewing process and is keen to push forward Old Mill in an ever evolving market.

Ryan brings his experience from Heineken UK Ltd, previously of Elland Brewery working under two time CAMRA winter ales champion and one time CAMRA national Supreme champion head brewer Michael Wynnyczuk and is enthusiastic with ideas for bigger and better things at Old Mill including a new scope to market in the pipeline and lots of events scheduled for the year ahead.

Ryan is excited to get back to hands on traditional brewing for a company that is independent and well established in the cask ale market.  Ryan is looking forward to working with a fantastic range of core beers such as Traditional Bitter and Blonde Bombshell, whilst also bringing his own tweak to the seasonal range. Look out for some new exciting beers over the coming months.

Ryan is a keen cricketer, playing in the York League.  In his spare time he likes to visit breweries and taste different beers, looking for future inspiration to create new and exciting ales for the Old Mill.

Ryan said “It’s an honour to join the Old Mill team; I’m looking forward to getting my feet under the table and working for a great company.  I’m focusing on keeping the brewery evolving in the ever changing cask market. Whether that be with new recipes to fit what is in vogue or keeping the traditional range at the high standard people have come to love over many years.  Look out for the 35 year celebrations this year.  We are hoping to celebrate with a bang”.
