Ritchie Bosworth
Head Brewer

Ritchie started the brewery along with longtime friend, and fellow director, Chris Cooper. He left his full time job in January 2015 to manage the business and take on the brewing responsibilities full time.

Favourite Twisted Barrel Beer
"Changes by the week, current favourite is the huge complex, malt profile of Brobdingnagian"

 


Carl Marshall
Brewer

Carl studied brewing at Brew Labs in Sunderland and works with Ritchie to brew all the fantastic beers we produce.

Favourite Twisted Barrel Beer
"In Amber Clad; I love how the complexity of the rye mashes with the lingering bitterness and aroma of the hops we use."

Favourite style of beer
"Don't particularly have a favourite style of beer, it depends on the mood at the time. Of course, it also depends on what beer we have in the fridge at home as well. Currently I love hearing the cork pop on bottles of Lambics."

What can you be seen doing at the Brewery and Tap House
"You will probably see the back of me before the front. I always have my head in either the mash tun, or the kettle, cleaning. Either that or on top of a ladder pouring hops into lovely tasting wort."

When not at the Brewery and Tap working you will find me...
"...either chilling at home playing with the rabbit, drinking a beer, or cruising down the highway on my motorbike."


"Did I ever tell you the one about..."

"Did I ever tell you the one about..."

Chris Cooper
Director

Chris started the brewery with Ritchie, our head brewer, from his and his wife's garage in Tile Hill, Coventry. He still works his day job in IT, but you'll see him working the bar every couple of weeks or so, or when we have any major events taking place, such as the beer festivals or our now famous Father Ted days.
He also still manages to get involved and help with beer recipes, tap events and even brews his own beer every now and then.

Favourite Twisted Barrel Beer
"Not one but two beers: In Amber Clad and Wake Up Juice, blended!"

Favourite style of beer
"Wheat beer."

What can you be seen doing at the Brewery and Tap House
"Cleaning glasses, talking about beer to anyone that'll listen or fiddling with some of the tech equipment around the place."

When not at the Brewery and Tap working you will find me...
"At work, or being dad to my little boy."


Jenni Bosworth
Director

Favourite Twisted Barrel Beer
"God’s Twisted Sister - I'm a fan of a good stout and this is one of the best.."

Favourite style of beer
"Stouts will get my vote in an average pub, but when possible I will take a sour beer, be it a cherry sour, a gueze or a lambic."

What can you be seen doing at the Brewery and Tap House
"Cleaning (I love cleaning) or rewriting the bloody chalkboards…a time consuming job but also one I am happy to do due to my obsessive nature and love for nice handwriting. I can also be seen most days at 6pm waiting for Ritchie to stop working so we can go home!"

When not at the Brewery and Tap working you will find me...
"Still working! Either at my “proper job” in Warwick or at home doing stuff for the brewery or my roller derby team, Coventry Roller Derby."

Annie Cooper
Director
