Oh, we do like to be beside the seaside. And we like it even more when there is some quality, locallybrewed craft beer to enjoy the views with. These two likes are shared by the co-owners of an up-and-coming bar, taproom and brewing brand based in one of England’s favourite seaside towns, Brighton. Bison Beer is the brainchild of Nick Vardy and Jack Cregan, a British duo who three years ago found themselves wanting something more from their regular nine-to-five existences. “Nick and I worked together for a long time in sports media in London,” begins Jack. “We worked on projects for various big organisations such as the BBC and UEFA and during that time we watched craft beer go from becoming an underground scene to a ragingly popular one in the British capital. We also discovered that we were looking forward to our beer after work a lot more than we were looking forward to Monday mornings.”
