Shark Island Brewing Company still swimming

Last year we brought you the story of the Shark Island Brewing Company who were on the brink of collapse, even before they got their business off the ground.

Their misfortune was thanks to an equipment supplier who went bust and ran off with thousands of dollars of their money as well as money from other micro-breweries.

When publican James Bain from the Royal Albert Hotel heard about their plight, he organised a fund raiser to help the boys out. A number of local brewers got on board and donated kegs in support of Shark Island.

We catch up with the partners of Shark Brewers, 12 months on.

Story features:

  • James Peebles, Partner at Shark Island Brewing Company
  • Dion “Driza” Dickinson, Partner at Shark Island Brewing Company
