In 1981 the brewers in Burton Upon Trent were powerhouses. Whilst separating the ale and lager liquor streams at Ind Coopes Romford brewery in 1979, Engineering Manager Geoff Mumford and Technical Manager Bruce Wilkinson discovered a mutual interest in starting their own brewery.  It soon become apparent that it would be better to have a small brewery joined on to a pub and own the freehold rather than rent an industrial site.

The Fox and Goose was advertised in the Morning Advertiser and a visit was made. The building needed much maintenance; there were no services gas, electricity or water.

Over the years Bruce and Geoff, the visionary minds behind Burton Bridge Brewery built loyal customers who have contributed to the success of the brewery. The brewery still holds their commitment to quality and tradition, which laid a solid foundation for an exciting collaboration with Planning Solutions Limited when Geoff and Bruce wanted to take a step back from day-to-day operations.

With a handover of old hands training new hands the best techniques, the Burton Bridge Brewery has given notice to all award bodies of its ambitious trajectory in the coming years.
