Although our founder is best known for writing and directing films, Guy Ritchie is equally passionate about food and drink, particularly beer.
Guy’s deep interest in beer stems from a fascination with pubs during his upbringing and the stories he heard in them. His first encounter with beer was a cask ale, from a brewery long forgotten, but which has left an enduring impression.
In an attempt to recreate this elusive beer, Guy established Gritchie Brewing Company, which was launched in 2017 with ‘English Lore’ his interpretation of a quintessential British ale. Guy continues to be an integral part of the business and a committed beer drinker.
‘I’ve always had a passion for beer and pub culture, so it seemed fitting that I should set up a brewery. I’m interested in trying to add a subtle and contemporary change to the traditional drink of Britain.’
