WINTER BEER FESTIVAL 5 - 7 DECEMBER
Meet our Brewers – Ian Rydings and Mark Springham
The Leigh on Sea Brewing Company was conceived in late December 2016 during a modest tour of local hostelries. With some eighty odd years of ale drinking under their belt, Ian and Mark agreed that they knew a thing or two about beer and noted the absence of a brewery in Leigh on Sea, or indeed in Southend.
The seed was sown. Pipe dream turned to reality early in 2017 when the opportunity arose to put their talents together and pursue their passion for quality beer by actually making it.
Premises were found, investors bought in, HMRC and the local Council were satisfied, and our brewers got themselves as much training and experience as time would allow. Just seven months later the first beer began to flow.
