Fuller, Smith & Turner, the London brewer and premium pub company, announces that as of Monday [January 30, 2017] Georgina Young will become Head Brewer.
Simon Dodd, Managing Director of The Fuller’s Beer Company, said: “This is a fantastic move for George and owes a great deal to John Keeling. He hired George as a production brewer in 1999, has developed her throughout her career at Fuller’s, and will continue to mentor her.
“With George assuming day to day responsibility for the Brewery, John will have more flexibility to promote Fuller’s on a wider global stage. He plays an important ambassadorial role and is in demand worldwide to speak at conferences and judge at numerous high profile international beer awards. John will also continue to work on numerous other projects such as collaboration beers.”
John Keeling added: “I’m delighted to see George promoted to this role. She is very well-respected at Fuller’s and throughout the wider industry and is the first female Head Brewer at Fuller’s. She’s a great person to lead the Brewery going forwards and inspire the next generation of brewers.”
