Tom Bott

Tom Bott (Chair)

Signature Brew

Tom Bott is the Founder and Head Brewer of Signature Brew in Leyton, East London.

Signature Brew was established in 2011 by Tom and his cousin Sam, and was born out of their mutual frustration at the state of beer in UK music venues. They set about changing the landscape for beer drinkers at gigs, firstly recruiting internationally renowned bands and musicians to create collaboration beers and now through their core range of music inspired beers, packaged in keg, can and cask. Tom first got involved in beer through his dad and uncle who run Titanic Brewery in Stoke-on-Trent. It was here during his formative years that he experienced the many facets of brewing life and so began his infatuation with beer.”
