The Brewer

Josh has been brewing since 2009 and has had the great fortune to have worked for two multi-award-winning breweries in and around his hometown. Starting at Brampton Brewery and then moving to Thornbridge Brewery in Bakewell in 2016. During this time Josh has gained his Diploma in brewing with the Institute of Brewing and Distilling and had the opportunity to work with and collaborate with other brewers and breweries from around the world.

Having these chances to learn, create and run with ideas, instilled a passion for beer and its creation. Resting Devil was born out of that passion and aims to bring consistent quality to the consumer and using the knowledge gained to create something small that can stand alongside their peers.
