Fuller’s head brewer Georgina Young is moving to the West Country to take over Bath Ales’ brewing operations in Bath.

Young began her career at Fuller’s in 1999, working with head brewer John Keeling. In 2017, he retired and she was given the top job.

Young will be based at the St Austell-owned Hare Brewery in Warmley, which is located on the outskirts of Bristol, eight miles northwest of Bath.

She will be in charge of the Bath Ales production and report to St Austell brewing director Roger Ryman.

The move follows on from Asahi’s takeover of Fuller’s in January.

Young said: “I’m delighted to be heading back to my home town of Bristol.

“It’s where my parents and sister still live and it’s something I’ve been mulling over for some time, so when a great brewer like St Austell offered me such a fantastic opportunity, I just couldn’t say no.”
