Only seven years ago, Jasper Cuppaidge was "merely" an enthusiastic beer lover – but then he was seized by a desire to venture into brewing his own beer! There must be something in the genes, since his grandfather once had his own brewery in Australia. It was his grandfather's recipe that Jasper used to brew his very first beer, in the cellar of the pub that he was running at the time. His beer was so well received, that he decided, just one year later, to expand his operations, and, hence, the birth of the Camden Town Brewery. It was named after the London district that has been its home since 1999.
