New Brewer's Assistant!

Things are happening down at Fallen Acorn Brewery, we are proud to introduce our new member of the team Miki! As Brewer's Assistant, Miki will be in charge of cleaning, mashing-out, gravity checking, assisting with new recipes and helping out with event stalls.

Miki was born in Johannesburg, South Africa and studied Graphic Design at Benoni Technical College. His mother has worked for South African Breweries for the last 30 years, so he has had a good exposure to beer most of his life and an interest in the process. For nearly 5 years now, Miki has been home brewing.

With a huge passion for music, and being a drummer himself, Miki has named most of his brews after song titles of his favourite bands. Most recently he brewed Kilmister Dark Lager after the late Lemmy Kilmister from Motörhead, and Star Man IPA for David Bowie.

Back in Johannesburg, Miki and his buddy Tom started Tommik Brew Co. which saw some interesting brews. Miki started off with an Apple, Cinnamon and Ginger Cider and continued to brew interesting beers such as Swiss Chocolate Almond Draught and a Rum Cerveza.

We are excited to have Miki on board, and glad to have him at Fallen Acorn Brewing Co. for his first job in the UK! Miki said "I'm super stoked to be part of the team at Fallen Acorn Brewing Co, and the things to come!"
