Founder, Bucks Star Brewery
Since my childhood I have wanted to create and offer something good to those around me, and little did I know that my academic background in law was simply a stepping stone to eventually realising the Bucks Star brand and what we believe to be pure, quality beer.
We haven’t been short of obstacles, but any truly rewarding venture will no doubt deliver its challenges, whether it’s competitors who don’t want you in the market or remedying certain perceptions the general public may hold about particular products. We’ve had to work hard to elucidate the benefits of unfiltered and unfined (without isinglass) beer, which we translate as our live unfiltered beer.
It took two years of planning, but before our first full year of trading, a neighbouring business caught fire preventing us from brewing in our new shiny brewery. But this hasn’t stopped us; our passion remains strong and the support we have received from friends and the local public gives us encouragement. What’s more, this disruption has given me the opportunity to develop parts of the business which urgently needed attention, including setting up this website. Even more fantastic was the Craft Beer of the Year award we recently received in the Buckinghamshire Food and Drink Awards, so a big thank you to those of you who have supported us whether by voting for us or simply buying our beer!
