Fueled with a passion for real ale and an incentive for “doing things right” Karl Waring began brewing in 1994. A brewing kit was constructed to brew using all grain known as the full mash method. Whenever Karl was introduced as a brewer the question asked was “what, full mash?”. The name stuck. First as The Full Mash Brewery Then becoming Full Mash Brewery to the present day known as Full Mash.

Commercial brewing began in 2003 using the original home brewing kit producing only one 9gal cask per brew. A 1brl kit was constructed to maintain orders and quickly grew into a 2brl brewery, operating 4 times a week.

A 4brl brewery is currently in operation producing a range of ales from the core beer range through to seasonal specials, one off specials and a regular house beer.
