Two years ago, when Eddie Baines left Tap East to take over the now mythical Antic brewery we got very lucky. What we needed was a brewer who was going to push Tap East beers to another level, someone who was hungry, talented and proven.
We found him…well he found us really but Jim Wilson was the perfect fit for us and in the last two years Tap East beers have gone from strength to strength and gained recognition for quality all over London and beyond. he’s also been instrumental in helping organise the beer festivals at Tap East and has a vast array of brews under his belt, having worked with some of the godfathers of modern brewing from all over the globe.
Jim has decided it’s time to move on and on behalf of everybody at Tap East and Utobeer we’d like to say a massive thank you and good luck for the future. We’re pretty certain that he’s got a big future in brewing should he choose to stay in the business.
Keep an eye on the blog for Jim’s replacement but whoever that may be has some pretty big shoes to fill.
