Fowler’s Fellows and Companions

The upstanding body of learner brewers who begin their in depth involvement with real ale brewing in the Fowler’s microbrewery are always accorded the recognition they deserve on successful completion of their brew.

The first stage is Fowler’s Fellow (ff) for all who have successfully seen 100 gallons brewed. The second stage is a Fowler’s Companion (fc), with 300 gallons to their credit.

The Roll of Accomplishment is recorded in these pages for posterity along with the date and brew(s) achieved. Each individual receives their own personal Certificate of Accomplishment. The inaugural BrewSets were from celebrities and old John Fowler & Company staffs in Prestonpans. But they have had many worthy followers and many more to come.
