Paul Buttrick Bio

Paul Buttrick BSc, MSc, M Brew, FIBD

In 2005, after 31 varied years with Whitbread and AB-Inbev in mainstream brewing, I decided to work independently as a Brewing Consultant, working with many of the ‘new wave’ craft/microbreweries. My extensive knowledge and experience in many different beer styles has been invaluable to many aspiring Craft Brewers.

Derek Orford BSc, M Brew, Beer Sommelier

After 30 years brewing with Whitbread, Heineken, and Lion Nathan, I began working in the craft/microbrewery sector in 2012, initially helping out local brewers, then as a part-time or interim Head Brewer & Beer Sommelier at other breweries. I also created my own brand, with various beer styles made with novel ingredients, sold at Farmers Markets, and have audited breweries under the SIBA FSQ scheme.
