Since Derek Bates can first remember,

he’s had an obsession with great taste.

He grew up absorbing a love of cooking

from his family, gaining a particular liking for

game, fish and BBQ. His passion for flavours

saw him working in a series of restaurants in

his native South Carolina before he turned his

hand to what would become his major passion

for the years to come – brewing beer.

Derek (or Bates as he’s more commonly

known) began working in a brewpub and

experimenting by brewing beer with a local

mindset. His passion and natural flair for

standing over a tun and working his brewing

magic began to become well known locally in

America’s southeast.

“Those early days were where I started
