Oliver Marsh Bedlam Brewery

Bedlam Brewery, under pressure to expand capacity as the business grows, has welcomed Oliver Marsh as operations manager.

Chiefly responsible for sales, distribution and production, Oliver (pictured) joins Bedlam after nine years at Ridgeview Estate Winery, the multi-award-winning English wine producer. Ridgeview have been a great Sussex success story and Oliver has played a very important part of that expansion and success, but is now keen to join the very ambitious Bedlam team to play a central role in their development.

He said: “Who doesn’t want to work for a brewery? You might say that it was love at first sip at the moment when Fabio [Bedlam’s German brewer] gave me a glass of Kellerbier, a fresh pale ale, straight from the conditioning tank.”

Oliver’s arrival follows the appointment of the former top man at Dark Star Brewery, Paul Reed, in October last year.
