Dorset Brewing Company have appointed a new Master Brewer, Oliver Kitson, to join their team at their bespoke Jurassic Brewhouse near Dorchester.

With a new brewer on board, MD Giles Smeath anticipates a bright and exciting future for the brewery, and comments: “The business has really taken off since our relocation and with the addition of a new brewer, my time can now be more focused on other areas of the business. The brewery has substantially increased its volume of production, particularly with our flagship ale Jurassic going from strength to strength since its listing with Punch last year.  With our other popular ales, Harbour Master, Tom Browns, Chesil, Ammonite & Durdle Door following in hot pursuit, an increasing number of outlets throughout the south west are welcoming DBC ales onto their bars. With further listings on various beer programmes nationwide, our ales are becoming more readily available to a wider audience, which not only bodes well for the future of the brewery, but also means that Oliver’s appointment is extremely well timed.”

Giles goes on to say; “We are delighted to welcome Oliver to the team. Having gained a first at Herriott Watt a couple of years ago, followed by a stint at Purity Brewery, where he proved himself very capable, his great enthusiasm as well as very sound technical knowledge will make him a great asset to the team.”
