The Brewer - Jez O'Neill

My love of beer, pubs and brewing (I first brewed aged 14, with my father’s tacit approval), a vacant building in King’s Cliffe and an opportunity to change career all led to the founding of King’s Cliffe Brewery in early 2014.


The pleasure of creating beers to my own recipes, doing this in my home village of King’s Cliffe and reviving an industry that was last alive in the village 100 years ago gives me more pleasure than I can describe. I hope you get pleasure from drinking KCB beer.
