About Us

At the bar

We are fundamentally a brewery dedicated to making good, flavour forward drinkable beer. We have been borne out of the passion for beers and science by Allan Rice and Sarah Thackray. Ultimately we find the process of making beer using world class ingredients, some traditional and some off the wall, the most exciting part of what we do, there is nothing better than formulating a new beer and experimenting on our kit to make it.

After much hard work, many long hours, some crazy big loans, awesome stainless steel and a lot of support from friends and family, Atom Brewing will be arriving on the scene in late December 2013.

We aim to blend our passion for science and brewing to create beers that are full of big flavours, using the best ingredients with our own twist. Allied to a brewery that focuses on science and education through beers schools and tutored tours.

Our beers will be available in cask, keg and bottles because we believe that different beers suit different dispense methods. Check out the rest of the site, if you like what we do, drop us an email on .

We love to talk about beers and our brewery, since before we launched we have been continually asked if folk can come a do a tour! So we decided to make it happen. Brewery tours last a couple of hours (beers on the way round of course), typically we will give you a beer when you arrive, you will learn about the brewing process, eat some malt, sniff some hops, have more beer. Hear about the why's and how's of Atom, what we are about, the science behind ours beers (and yes drink some more beer).

If you are passionate about your beers, want to more about brewing or just want to do something different, tours cost £10pp. To book then drop us an email at

Tours can be tailored to suit groups.

General Tours: 6 - 15 people; £10 each; 2 Hours - includes beers/soft drinks/tea/coffee whilst touring the brewery; Overview of the brewing process and how our beers are made.

We are also currently in the process of putting together tours suitable school classes, please contact us for further information.
