Brewers Description

Greg hasn’t really liked stout in the past but was tasked with creating one. He doesn’t enjoy the dark roasted malt that gives Stout its unique flavour and body (especially imperial styles). Not one to shy away from a challenge he tried 58 different versions with his father in law and settled that a ‘Milk Stout’ was the way to go.


A Milk Stout with a twist. Stouts use darkly roasted malt to create the colour and ‘bitterness’ which can be quite polarising for some beer drinkers. We’ve used less darkly roasted malt and used the natural sweetness of caramel and lactose to give a beautiful sweet stout. Back hopped with mosaic will leave you with a malty biscuit based and blueberry on the nose.

Tasting Notes:  Brewed with the addition of lactose, ours is a sweeter take on a traditional stout which works well with rich chocolate desserts where the delicate blueberry and caramel in the beer are complemented by the foods rich flavour. Pairs nicely with cheeses like Stilton or Comte.

“it’s like a dessert in a can, lush”

About People's Captain

Greg Bateman is a Professional rugby player for Newport Gwent Dragon's by day – and public advocate of positive mental health by night. Greg was public about his own struggles back in 2019 and after finding great solace in the process of brewing beers and chatting with punters about the article in the pub the question turned from ‘why me’ to ‘what am I going to do about it’.

From those beginnings, the idea of People's Captain developed. More than just making great craft beer, it's the social connections that we make when sharing a drink with friends and family that got Greg and the team thinking bigger. Some of the most important conversations people have are over a pint, (as well as some of the most meaningless!) As an advocate of positive mental health Greg wanted People's Captain to do more than make amazing craft beer, with this in mind, the People's Captain Foundation sits at the heart of the business supporting and contributing to positive mental health.

Beer is the passion, but there is also a purpose. The People's Captain Foundation will raise £1m to support initiatives that take action for positive mental health. In a nutshell, its about BREWING POSITIVITY
