Originally forming a strong friendship whilst working together at L&P Chemical Works, The Meanwood Brewery was born of DISASTER. After a particularly heated debate about the true nature of orange juice, the four founding members - Gaston, Brewster, Rutherford and Ian - parted ways to go about their duties. Little did they know their lives were about to change FOREVER…
In a deafening crash the QUANTUM ENGINE that Brewster and Ian were working on exploded in a flash of blinding white light. Gaston and Rutherford rushed into the building - ablaze with green fire - to save their comrades. Pulling them from the wreckage, they vowed never to let discussions about orange juice escalate lest they part ways on a sour note unable to reconcile.
Over the weeks that followed each of them began to manifest strange abilities. Gaston was able to pair hops in a way that elicited new and exciting FLAVOURS beyond the normal tired old descriptors like ‘citrus’, ‘tropical fruit’ or ‘dank’. Brewster found himself able to influence yeast at the cellular level, asking them to produce ESTERS here-to-unknown to beer. Rutherford was able to sense the exact MALT quantities and types in order to produce the perfectly balanced backbone for any beer. Finally, Ian was able to win FAVOUR with all who listened to his golden tongued patter about the allure of the beverage these four were now able to create thanks to these unique powers.
