About Handmade Beer

The Handmade Beer Company started as a traditional microbrewery in 2013, developing and brewing classic ales from a rural brewery site in Carmarthenshire, Wales.

In January 2016, the founder and head brewer, felt it was time for change, time to evolve.

With Itchy feet and a desire to add new and exciting beers to the range, the decision was made to gain more brewing experience and increase his knowledge of fermentation, so in February 2016 he got rid of the production facility and hit the road as a Gyspy Brewer'.

Ian has a blog to record his journey as an itinerant brewer, so If you're interested, why not get on over to www.ianbowler.co.uk

Don't worry though, The Handmade Beer Company, is still in business and continues to be the distribution channel for Ian's beery creations.
