Being fully involved in every aspect of brewing is a dream job for Wincle’s new apprentice.

Hops, barley, malt, mashing, boiling and pitching are now in the everyday vocabulary for Elliot Anderson as he gets stuck into the job and works towards an NVQ qualification.

As you’d expect it is a hands-on role, it’s a physical job too, but one with real satisfaction and rewards. Not least is a love for the beer that we brew and picking up some awards along the way too.

For nineteen-year-old Elliot, it’s a great opportunity to get better acquainted with favourites like Wincle Waller, Sir Philip, Rambler and Wibbly Wallaby. But he’s also joining at a very exciting time as we develop next year’s range of seasonal beers – more to follow on this later!

Outside of work, he’s no slouch either. He’s an accomplished DJ with a passion for house and techno. He’s a music producer and hopes to sign up with an established recording label in the next year.
