The birth of Cornish Crown Brewery
The idea for the brewery was hatched by Josh Dunkley who along with his wife are owner operators of the Crown Free house in Penzance
Josh Dunkley spent three years setting up the brewery. Acquiring technical knowledge from brew-lab, ( a College within Sunderland University), specialising in brewing and brewing science. Hands on experience from a two week placement at the Otter Brewery in their brewhouse. Sourcing and commissioning someone to build and install the brewhouse equipment (Dave Porter). Possibly most important locating the right site for the brewery. The brewery site was chosen for several reasons including having land fit for a bore hole, space for a soak away and room for expansion.
The brewery has all these and a view to die for.
