10/02/2016 – We are pleased to announce the appointment of Ken Seaman who, despite having worked for us a bit before, is going to run Tap Room 19.  It would seem that you cannot keep a good man down! His appointment as overall Director Of Abuse at the brewery is subject to consideration but from the picture, it would appear he is eminently qualified.
