Craig or Shakey as is he almost universally known, started brewing at an early age when his mother bought him a home brew kit as a reward for achieving a place at University. An honors degree in Business was bolted on to his batch brewing skills, however when leaving Glasgow opportunities were limited and needing to find work quickly he got involved with Engineering and Distribution. Shakey would happily confess to being a 'ticker' in those days when Glasgow was a cask ale desert, eagerly seeking out new Scottish beers and it was then he discovered the delight of Caledonian 80 Shilling in the famous Horseshoe Bar in Drury Street. He then moved through to Edinburgh to be closer to his pint of preference and finally in 1997 he joined the Caledonian Brewing Company; initially as Telesales Development Manager and now Operations Manager. In the last 3 years he has increased their annual range from 12 to over 20 beers. Also looking after wholesale customers and route to market has allowed Craig to get great feedback on how Caledonian's beers perform and see how market trends are developing. Craig has given many pub presentations and tastings over the last 12 months; from just 2 miles from his house in Edinburgh to as far away as Denver.
