Director Gavin Leach has enjoyed success with the brewery since left a career in pharmaceuticals to establish the business partner Rob Singleton in 2017.

Since then Windmill Hill has gone on to create award-winning seasonal and limited-edition beers, found on sale in an increasing number of independent shops and bars across south Warwickshire.

"We’ve been working hard to create a beautiful space in which to serve our beers exactly where they’re made on Neilston Street.

“We’ve been regularly hosting brewery tours, and the feedback we’ve had has been great.

"Lots of the tour customers return to experience our brewery again, and have commented regarding opening more often and offering a taproom experience too.

“It’s really great to see something you produce from scratch being enjoyed and especially as a small local producer to be able to open up to the public and offer a taproom has been a dream since starting the business.”
