MEET THE TEAM

 
 

DAVID McGOWAN

BREWERY OWNER: Veni, Vedi et cerviciam

David works in the sales & operations side of the business but does a bit of everything like the rest of the team. Although we have yet to find him digging out the mash tun…

Away from the brewery he’s a keen footie supporter and avid beer drinker. But he calls it ‘research’. David is also a trustee for Scotland’s oldest drinks charity, the BEN.

FAVOURITE BEER: HOPO Proper IPA

JOHN HUNT

John is our finance guru and keeps us all on our toes bringing new brew ideas for customers here and overseas.

When he’s away from the brewery he enjoys walking his greyhounds and travelling around the world sampling the local beer of course.

Ian Smith

IAN SMITH

MASTER BREWER

Ian is our Master Brewer and has been brewing at Broughton for over 35 years.

When he’s not busy brewing, he enjoys going to the pub and spending time with his family. He also likes to enjoy a spot of fishing where he relishes in the peace & quiet!

FAVOURITE BEER: HOPO 6.2 IPA

 
 
 
Kate Thompson

KATE THOMPSON

OFFICE MANAGER

Anyone visiting the brewery over the years knows Kate as she has been working there for so long, she is now one of the fixtures and fittings!
Kate tries to always be happy in her office role and remains calm under stress, although she claims to be more like the swan gliding on the water but frantically paddling underneath…
Her many years of service are now being published in a book which she is writing “Carry on Brewing”. Should be on the shelves next year.

FAVOURITE BEER: HOP0% Alcohol Free Malt Drink

 
 
David Alcorn

DAVID ALCORN

OFFICE ADMINISTRATOR

David works between the office & the brewery and he is responsible for getting your beer orders to you. (some may say this is the most important job!)
Outside of sending your beer to you he keeps busy on the weekends showing his prize-winning dogs at shows all over the country. He has 10 dogs, 3 alpacas & 25 sheep to look after.

Anne Otto

ANNE OTTO

SALES BRAND AMBASSADOR

Anne is our Brand Ambassador and takes care of our telesales. It’s her chirpy voice you hear on a Monday morning as she calls you at the pub for your beer order.
Away from the pubs & brewery, Anne enjoys spending time with her family and keeps herself busy organising community projects in her village.

FAVOURITE BEER: HOPO Blonde Craft Lager
