󰀢 Meet the team behind Lerwick Brewery 

Name: Rhanna Turberville
What do you do at the brewery: Head Brewer
Favourite bit of working for Lerwick Brewery: I love the variation of working within a craft brewery, being part of a small team. Some days you might be fixing pumps, figuring out how to ship beer to far flung places or concocting new recipes, there is always something different happening at the brewery.
Favourite beer style: I prefer reds and darker beers. Caramel undertones or coffee and chocolate flavours paired well with nice flavoursome hops.
Hobbies: Films and reading, watching every episode of M*A*S*H repeatedly, tea drinking and if the weather is fine then I’ll be out on the motorbike.
