My name is Ed Czarnecki and I started learning about beer after my wife bought me a home brew starter kit for Christmas.
Like most new home brewers I started brewing using malt extract and achieved great results from this method, but the more research I did on home brewing the more obsessed I became with the hobby. I developed my brewing by reading various brewing books which led me onto all-grain brewing.
I was unaware at the time but this obsession for creating craft beer at home grew until I decided it would be great to turn my passion and hobby into a career.
At the time I was working as a Manager at a local gym (I know, complete career change) but was given an opportunity through one of my customers to join the team at Bowland Brewery. I quickly jumped on board with great enthusiasm and began learning the ways of a craft brewery.
My role at the brewery is to ensure the smooth running of production and to ensure our beers reach our customers in an efficient manner. My favourite styles of beer are IPA’s and Stouts.
It’s difficult to decide which Bowland beers I prefer, as I enjoy them all! Our new recipe, Buster IPA, is a masterpiece which was created by our Head Brewer. I also enjoy Deer Stalker which is a true luxury stout, and of course I enjoy Hen Harrier which is our best seller. (So to decide on one as my favourite is a difficult task, I love them all!)
Along with my passion and love to make and drink great beers, I have a busy lifestyle at home looking after my two daughters. But when time permits I continue to develop my own recipes and brew beer at home whenever I can.
