We’re like a busy, bustling family, brewing our ales with care, supporting our fantastic stockists when they need it and working together to get our beer to everyone in perfect condition. And, always with a smile.

As a team, we’re dedicated to making sure that every time you drink one of our ales you know you’re drinking Skinner’s. Our people are what set us apart, defining our reputation and aspirations. Here are just a few of the people who every day come to work to create, brew and deliver the perfect ale.

Packaging Manager

Everyday: I am brewing. This means maintaining the consistency and high quality of the beer being produced so we can call it Skinner's. The easiest way to achieve this is by exhaustive sampling and tasting. There are other methods but none are as much fun.

Loves: The dark science of brewing and near alchemy of turning cereals and tiny organisms into beer.

Loves: Making a fine product and working with such an excellent, bright team, united by our love for good beer.

Sales

Everyday: My day-to-day is spent maintaining the hundreds of already great relationships that Skinner's Brewery have made over the last (almost) 20 years, telling them all about the current and future beers. At the same time I am always on the lookout for new customers. Driving all over Cornwall to some stunning places is such a hard life!

Loves: I love meeting the people who champion and sell our beer through various pubs, restaurants, clubs, cafes and shops and also looking for new venues to take our beer and cider. I also really enjoy giving advice and training on all that Skinner's Brewery offer.
