The Team

Wildcraft Brewery only has one full time employee so couldn’t operate without a team of dedicated individuals who give up their time each week to come and help with everything from brewing, to building new bits of equipment and the hard graft of bottling and labeling.

Mike Deal:

Director, Head Brewer

Mike is the only full time, paid member of the team and as such, is the one you will see around the most. His love of hiding in bushes and foraging tasty treats while doing so, shaped his early brewing days and is why a lot of the Wildcraft Ales have hedgerow ingredients as elements in the recipes.

Mark Goodman

Director, Head Brawn

Mark has been part of Wildcraft since its inception and although he still works full time can be found in the brewery on many evenings and weekends. Although not apparent from the picture, Mark is the muscle at Wildcraft and often has to appear to help when a full fermenter gets stuck on the grating or casks needs moving from conditioning to the fridge.

Glenn Williamson:

Director, Maker of all things good

Glenn was one of the orginal investors in the brewery but has been much more than that and mid 2017, became the third cog in the directors wheel.  Straight talking and practically minded, he can step between Mike and Mark very quickly to sort them out and send them in the right direction.

We are awaiting a better picture of Glenn but it is hard to find him in one place for any length of time before he is off building, creating and making new things to make the brewery work more efficiently or that can add value to the business.

Paul Webster:

Paul is a volunteer who gives of his time for the love of beer and all things beer related. Due to his ability to be free during the day, he often get stuck with the laborious jobs of bottling, labeling or just things that need to be caught up on. Being ex military, everything is done with absolute precision and a heavy dose of sarcasm.


The face of Wildcraft, Head Forager

Brewbacca or ‘Brewy’ for short is the face of Wildcraft and appears in many different guises on all of our products.  Whether he is dressed up in Wild West outfits, drag or standing just in his pink and green fur, Brewy goes into the hedgerows and swaps what he finds for beer from the brewery.

Its rare to spot him in the countryside but if you do, make him and offering of berries or treats and he will soon be your friend!
