Here are a few testimonials from people I have worked with in recent years:
Chris Swersey – Brewers Association – World Beer Cup (United States)
“Paul Buttrick is one of those rare people in brewing who combine all the essentials positive for success. He has excellent technical knowledge of the brewing process, including, importantly how to do things right, things that can go wrong and how to fix them. He has experience on many scales from small breweries to large production facilities, and this range gives him a perspective not many possess. He has a keen palate, and is a highly regarded beer judge. He is well respected in the industry as a friendly authorative figure. Paul is the guy you want on your team”.
David Randall – former Vice President Supply – Inbev Western Europe
“Paul has an infectious enthusiasm for everything related to beer and the brewing process. His experience and encyclopaedic knowledge is complemented by communication skills which are effective at all levels of an organisation from the shop floor to the boardroom”.
Chris Edgcumbe-Rendle former Business Development Director - Cobra Beer
“Paul worked enthusiastically with Cobra Beer for nearly two years. He is highly regarded in the industry, is passionate about beer and has been an excellent source of technical and industry knowledge. Apart from brewing and technical matters, Paul has helped our marketing dept with tasting, profiling and trade audit. More recently, through his experience and extensive contacts he has helped me to set up a new brewing and packaging base for Cobra Beer in the UK”.
Graeme Mitchell - Mitchell Krause Brewing Ltd.
“Paul’s technical ability is outstanding. He is the only UK based Master Brewer that I know of that could not only develop recipes for my Czech Pilsner, American Pale Ale and Bavarian Hefe Weiss but critically implement them perfectly with my brewing team first brew, enabling me to sell them straight away. The real reason, however, that I enjoy working with Paul so much is that he is as excited about my beers and my business as I am!”.
Paddy Johnson - Windsor and Eton Brewery
"I have known Paul throughout his long and interesting brewing career which has gained him such a wide and varied level of experience. When we came to set up our own Craft Brewery Paul was a natural choice to use to gain a wider perspective that we could add to our own specific knowledge and ensure we got it 'right first time'. Paul's insightful recommendations are always shared in a calm and measured way which you can have total confidence in. A good guy to use in a variety of brewing and related applications."
Giles Meadows - Wincle Beer Co
"Paul Buttrick was approached by Wincle Brewery to help us with our move to a new brewery and advise us in the procurement of new plant. His expertise, patience, attention to detail and sheer bloody friendliness has ensured that we now have an excellent brewery and the confidence, instilled by Paul, to produce great beers. I have thoroughly enjoyed working with Paul, as have the whole team."
