Team

Richard Shardlow

Richard Shardlow

Director

The man who kicked off Tring Brewery back in 1992 armed with a rich history in brewing and the installation of breweries. If he’s not pulling apart a heat exchanger or programming a control system then Richard can be found (or not, as his preference), sailing around the coast of Britain and France. A keen supporter of local charities, Richard is one of the key figures behind Tring Carnival.

Andrew Jackson

Andrew Jackson

Director

Joined the brewery in 2000 and bought with him knowledge of retail, brewing and a Phd in yeast studies. You can call him Dr Jackson if you wish. A keen foodie, no pig is safe if Andrew is nearby, wielding his trusty carving knife and copper skillet. A firm believer in Yin Yang principal  i.e. 30 minutes on the cross trainer followed by a good beer!

Barry Phipp

Barry Phipp

Brewer

The original member of staff and brewer of impeccable timing and consistency. The folks of Tring don’t look at watches to judge the time, they just look to see when Barry enters the brewery and then arrives after a hard days work at the Kings Arms. Another keen foodie, photographer, Mix 96 fan and family man. Just don’t ask to see “that” mankini photo.

Lynne Tarling

Lynne Tarling

Accounts

Having experienced the luxury of working as a directors PA with M&S, Lynne felt there was nowhere else better to go than Tring Brewery. Be nice to this lady, especially if you’re a supplier, she’ll make sure you get paid on time. If Lynne isn’t balancing books or ploughing through paperwork she’s balancing time spent with her twins or ploughing through the flowerbeds in her garden.

Terry

Terry Baker

Driver

One of the original employees and now our main driver, Terry has delivered more pints of beer than any of you have had hot dinners, in fact a quick calculation indicates about 486,000 per year! After all that strenuous work Terry can usually be found pottering around the garden or lying in the sun (usually somewhere very hot).

Ben Marston

Marketing and Customer Experience Manager

Self titled Black Beard Ben, (to differentiate himself from the other Ben), joined the brewery in 2008. Heading up marketing activity he’s usually found behind a myriad of computer screens, organising events and tours or riding the forklift. A lover of the outdoors, travel to exotic places, cycling, gin and playing the guitar, badly. Since starting at the brewery the beard has started to turn grey. He calls it platinum.

Sam Reed

Sam Reed

Production

This guy joined us as a fresh faced school boy. Throughout his education (including a design degree) he stayed with us and now takes up the role of production operative and second brewer. Sam currently owns the brightest classic green VW beetle in the whole world, well Tring at least. If he’s not drinking beer, or pogoing around at gigs, he can be found hanging from his fingertips at the local climbing wall. He loves a bargain.

Scott Thomson

Scott Thomson

Quality Control

This mild mannered chap is a little bit mad. Who else would volunteer to have darts thrown at them or be shot with an air rifle. Fortunately, the well travelled Scott has an unquestionable desire to ensure that all the product that leaves the shop is impeccable condition. Fuelled by beer, Green Day, Laura Marling and selection of own brand biscuits this guy is a beer dispensing machine. He also knows a good card trick or two.

Frankie Brown

Francis “Frankie” Brown

Brewery Operative

He gets most of the physical jobs but if you’ve met him, you’ll understand why. Want to get 120 stainless steel firkins spotlessly cleaned, filled with beer then shift the resulting 6000kg of product from the brewhouse to the cellar….you need to get yourself a “Frankie”. Another VW owner (no folks we are not sponsored) he’s partial to anything covered in chilli sauce….the hotter the better.

Paul Campbell

Paul Campbell

Driver

Our newest and other main driver. From the car he owns we get the feeling Paul might get a little frustrated at the speed our delivery vans are limited to. Like many others in the brewery he’s loyal to a particular football team. We don’t make it a habit to publicly embarrass our staff so we’re not going to tell you which one. Did someone say Bug Jam, then Paul is there. Its a VW event not insect based preserve, if you were wondering.

Molly

Molly

Therapist

The only other female member of the team and the only one who spends most of her day under a desk. Molly, part lurcher, part Bedlington terrier is the brewery dog and loyal companion to Andrew. Always on the prowl for tennis balls and staff lunches. Unlike a real lady, she has the ability to clear a room in seconds after consuming any type of sausage roll.
