This work follows a day in the life of John Mills, head brewer of family owned brewery, Tower Brewery.  Situated in a disused water tower in Burton (the home of British Beer), @towerbrewery is one of the few remaining independent breweries left in Burton.  After the painstaking process of converting the water tower into a brewery, John’s next battle was to be allowed to brew beer at the premises.  An ancient covenant existing on the property, put in place by the formers owners Bass, preventing a new owner from brewing beer.  Despite the covenant building far past its useful date, John still had to go through the difficulties (and expense!) of getting it lifting.    Fitting perhaps then, that the iconic Bass red triangle featured heavily in the branding for one of Tower Breweries first brews, ‘Gone for a Burton’.
