Having joined the company in August, Rob Topham assumed the role of technical director, overseeing production at the brewery’s Staden Lane brewing facility.

With an extensive background in brewing and production management at Fullers, Camden Town, and, most recently, ABI, Rob brings a wealth of expertise and innovative strategies to optimise the production processes and elevate efficiency within the brewery.

John Hamilton joined the business this week to be area manager, spearheading the management and operations of the brewer’s bar operating company, Axe Edge Bars Ltd.

John has a proven track record in multi-venue management and business development, gained at True North Brew Co, promising to bring dynamic leadership and an enhanced customer experience to Buxton’s bars.

Finally, Dominic Metcalfe has taken up his new role as managing director of the company. With a forward-thinking approach and a keen eye for strategic growth opportunities gained through experience at Adnams, Black Isle Brewery, and, most recently, Thornbridge, Dom will be instrumental in steering Buxton Brewery through its next expansion phase and overseeing the acquisition of additional licensed premises.

“We are thrilled to welcome these talented individuals to our leadership team,” said Geoff Quinn, founder of Buxton Brewery. “Their collective expertise and fresh perspectives align perfectly with our company’s vision.

“We’re confident that their contributions will be instrumental in propelling our business to even greater success.”

The new leadership team’s appointments coincide with the brewery’s plans to expand production and acquire additional licensed premises, reflecting the company’s commitment to continuous growth and dedication to providing fantastic beer and warm hospitality to our customers.
