Jon Archer is now the head brewer of The Boot Beer Company in Repton
Jon Archer had a good job in IT but he decided to turn his back on the rat race and pursue his life-long passion of brewing beer.
He is now the head brewer at up-and-coming Repton brewery and will soon be celebrating one year in charge of The Boot Beer Company, connected to The Boot Inn, in Boot Hill, Repton, after taking over the reigns in May last year.

The Boot Beer Company is delighted to have been awarded a silver medal at national level, and a bronze at regional, for Boot Beast! We were awarded second place in the Strong Ale and Barley Wines category at the CAMRA Champion Winter Beer of Britain Festival 2018, against eight other breweries. Congratulations to Green Jack Brewery who came first with Ripper, and to Exmoor Ales who came third with their Beast. At Derby Winter Beer Festival 2018, Boot Beast also gained Bronze in the same category.
We are very proud to have taken home these prizes and hope there will be more to come!
