The Comeback KIB

Published on: 26th November, 2022

Bit of a special one this month, as we hear the amazing story of the resurrection of Kelham Island Brewery.

James, Adam, Laura and Sean are joined by Simon Webster and James O'Hara, part of the consortium who have brought the brand back to life.

Simon is CEO of Thornbridge, while James owns several pubs and bars around Sheffield as well as co-founding the Tramlines festival.

They give us a unique insight into the last few months, which has seen the return of Pale Rider to - and revealed the beer's incredible reach and popularity.

We also chat about future plans for the brewery and discuss the increasingly challenging landscape for brewers and venues.
