Who we are and our story so far....
or....Who's great idea was this?
Nick and Sarah Allen have been working together for over 20 years designing and making glassware, furniture, lighting, buildings and beautiful interiors.
They moved from London in 2006 and finally, in 2009, found and repurposed an industrial building, formerly a workshop and maintenance depot to a water pumping station, where they live and work on one-off commissions.
In 2011, whilst working in Portland, Oregon USA, they were amazed by the brewing culture and attitudes towards customer service there and realised they had stumbled into the epicentre of craft brewing.
Driven by a new found appreciation for beer, they returned to Sussex with a new hobby which became Greyhound Brewery and provided them with yet another outlet for their creative passion and pursuit of excellence. That was 2014, in 2017 they acquired the good will of Ballards Brewery which had been in continuous production since 1980 - so now Greyhound is proud to have a heritage brand.
