A match made in heaven – the first husband and wife Beer Academy Sommeliers
Kathy and Tim Britton have become the first husband and wife team to become Beer Academy Sommeliers. The Brittons own the Oldershaw Brewery in Grantham, Lincolnshire where Kathy is the Managing Partner. A love of beer and a yearning to make sure that life didn’t just drift by prompted them to move from Buckinghamshire to buy the brewery three years ago. Kathy runs the brewery whilst Tim still commutes to London every day but they both get involved in beer and beer events.
Drawing on their new status as Beer Sommeliers, Tim describes Kathy as “blonde in style, well hopped with floral notes and a citrusy edge to her finish.” Kathy’s tasting notes to describe Tim are “smooth, easy drinking in style, lots of flavour and what he likes to think of as depth, but others rank as an acquired taste!”
