Steve Gibson



Steve has been brewing country wines since 2005 and having fallen in love with mead at a trip to the medieval festival at Herstmonceux, he started brewing his own mead. The hobby has since grown, and Steve now keeps his own bees to harvest honey and gives talks and demonstration to local beekeeping groups and enthusiasts.
