40 years industry experience

Stephen has worked in the brewery industry for 40 years starting at the Bass Mitchells & Butler Springfield Brewery in Wolverhampton before moving to Marstons ans Samuel Smiths. Stephen's passion was always Cask Ales being a dedicated trainer at both Bass and Marstons. That and a passion gave him the push to go it alone and form Ales R Russ,


We have been working with Ales R Russ now for over 4 years. The return of empty barrels is prompt, Steve is consistent with his ordering and we keep a constant dialogue and payment is prompt.

We've been working with Steve from the inception of his company, and have worked closely together as both our businesses have grown. Clearly Steve's passion and knowledge of real ale has been an integral part of this growth.
