Who We Are

We are two people who enjoy the fine art of drinking Real Ale. In 2018 the both of us had an opportunity to indulge in our passion for brewing Real Ale; working alongside a “Master Brewer” so as a result Tantum Brewing was born.

We are based in the heart of Cheshire, surrounded by open countryside but more importantly near communities and towns who love their Real Ale.

Alistair – Retired Engineer with 38 years in the nuclear sector with the latter of this being people focused in his roles. He has creative and imaginative skills which his has brought to this business. He has a passion for Real Ale and the desire to produce a high quality Real Ale.

Mike – Retired IT Project Manager, delivery focused and spent 23 years with IBM. My passion has always been drinking Real Ale starting in the early 80’s; where I found that I was the only Real Ale drinker amongst people who drank lager.
