As a young boy, David grew up in and around Hook Norton but like others, before him, he went to another brewery (in this case, the Gilchrist’s Burtonwood brewery) to learn his trade. After fifteen months he returned to Hook Norton in 1960 to work under his father’s guidance and in 1981 he succeeded his father as Managing Director.
