Quality Session Ales is the strap-line for a new venture, Blackpit Brewery, started by three OBs: Ben Williams (91-02), Duncan Wheeler (95-02) and Oliver Whiteley (92-02).

The Old Bedfordians, who left in 2002, struggled to find their ‘academic calling’ but now operate a successful events company with a ready-made route to market for beer. After a few late nights and a couple of pints, the trio decided to indulge their passion by starting Blackpit brewery, in Buckinghamshire, with a real focus on quality hand-made session ales.

To launch the brewery, they’re hosting an opening party on the 17th of June and will welcome everyone with a free pint & slice of pizza. For more details on the opening event and the brewery, please visit their website.
