Golden Duck Brewery is based on a farm in Appleby Magna in North West Leicestershire. Being ideally locatated about a mile from the M42, we are able to distribute our beers across the Central Midland areas of Leicestershire, Derbyshire, Staffordshire, Nottinghamshire and Warwickshire.
This is a Father and Son operation with son Harry being the Head Brewer. Harry studied at Heriot Watt University in Edinburgh for 4 years to obtain his degree in ‘Brewing and Distilling’. At 23 years old Harry had gained valuable work experience with Burton Bridge Brewery, Tower Brewery and the National Brewing Centre in Burton, and Stewart’s Brewery in Edinburgh, before spending the last two summers at Derventio Brewery in Derby and Hopback Brewery in Salisbury. There is some history of brewing in the family too with Andy spending a short time at the Bass Malting’s site in Burton, and father Ray and brother Chris also spending a considerable amount of time working at Bass in Burton. Nephew Eddie still works for the now ‘Coors’ brewery in Burton and was responsible for the installation of our brewery in Appleby Magna. Andy will take on the role of General Manager/Brewery Apprentice. Andy’s full time role is working as a Management Consultant with ‘Complete Lean Solutions’ a company specialising in providing training and management support.
