Anspach and Hobday
Youngsters Paul Anspach and Jack Hobday were studying at London University when they started home-brewing back in 2011.
It was, however, only after they had accosted celebrity wine supremo Oz Clarke and thrust their home-brewed Porter into his hands that they realised they were on to something good.
The team turned to Kickstarter with the shonkiest of videos and raised a respectable five grand to fund some professional brewing kit. They plonked their 1 barrel pilot brewing kit in an empty corner of Bullfinch Brewery, nestled under a railway arch on Druid Street in South East London and got to work.
