Swan Brewery

Jimmy Swan has been brewing for over twenty years.  Originally a biochemist by training, he was in the Class of 1995 at Heriot Watt, gaining his postgraduate Diploma in Brewing and Distilling (with distinction), before starting work in the industry. 

Jimmy can be said to love beer and knows what he likes to drink.  He enjoys classic British styles, as well as more unusual recipes, and has a well trusted palate for beer tasting.  He’s been a beer judge at SIBA and CAMRA events, and been a hop judge for the IBD.  Jimmy has well over 100 regional, national and international awards to his name, and has developed the recipes for some well-known beers.

Jimmy has been settled in Herefordshire for over 12 years.  In his first few years in the county, along with wife Gill, he made his way round probably two thirds of Herefordshire’s pubs, working his way through CAMRA Herefordshire Pubs 2003.  With 2 young kids now, such systematic watering hole visits are less frequent, and usually linked to a walk in the fantastic Herefordshire countryside at the weekend.
