Our People

Four passionate people who have come together with seamless transition. The perfect combination of talents, careers and vision endeavouring to create the perfect craft beer experience. Oh and we LOVE a beer or two…

Peter – His first job was in a flour mill, working with purely malted grains for breweries and bakeries. Of late, 25 years in Food manufacture, product development and quality assurance. A Lavender farmer dabbling in distillation who has now come full circle with all of his attributes, bought a brewery and put his life skills to work where they now belong.

Joey – A career spanning 35 years in Hospitality. Owning and operating two acclaimed restaurants and teaching Food and Beverage for 20 years. French provincial food being her specialty which she learned from 5 years living in France.

Matt – Matt started getting interested in home brewing at age 16 brewing extract kits with his step Dad, whilst working in bars and breweries for 10 years he developed a love for craft beer. Having the opportunity to now be brewing beer at Longstocking so close to home is a dream come true! Matt joined our team full time in March 21 after spending time with us in a part time capacity. He has bought to our brewery fresh eyes, a professional touch and an exemplary knowledge of brewing. Matt takes us into our new 1000 litre system and our new brewery. We love Matt!

Leisha – Leisha walked into our lives and brought with her skills which enabled her to take on any role in front of house. She is now our full time Maitre d’Hotel . She joined us in 2020 and has proved invaluable. Yet another very welcome addition to the Longstocking family.

Emily – Our local dynamo! Em has joined our team to look after our administration (and us). She runs our office like a well-oiled machine and keeps us on our toes. She frequently manages front of house and we cannot do without her.
