Salopian Brewery

Former chef, Martin Barry, set up Salopian Brewery in 1995 in the county town of Shrewsbury. At the time Salopian was the second smallest brewery (not attached to a pub) in the country.

Whilst they gained a solid reputation amongst a small band of beer geeks, the brewery was struggling. Step up Wilf Nelson, who is still MD today. He joined the brewery in 1998 and put them on a firmer footing, insisting on a more traditional range of beers, developing a new yeast strain (essential for consistency) whilst rebuilding and modernizing the brewery, quadrupling its output capacity.
