Beer without damaging the planet

In this episode we chat to Greg Pilley, Founder & Managing Director of Stroud Brewery.

Stroud Brewery established in 2006, initially the brewery was a passion project for the founder Greg Pilley; an adventurer, environmentalist and beer lover. His purpose was simply to make great tasting beers for the local community whilst being the change he wanted to see in the business world.

Today Stroud Brewery is a thriving enterprise and the tap room has become one of Stroud’s cherished local landmarks. They make great tasting, ethical and organic beer and create welcoming, fun social spaces.

With the beer category being so full, with so many brands, styles, flavours, trends and looks to choose from, why choose a Stroud Brewery beer? The innovative team in the brewery have the utmost respect for our remarkable UK beer heritage. 

Stroud Brewery believe the only way to be truly sustainable is to invest in responsible organic farming. If we don’t look after our soils through organic farming they won’t be healthy enough to feed us in 60 years. They also work hard to lower our carbon and water footprints and implement circular economy principles.
