Owner, Head Brewer and Chief Sweeper-Upper, Russ Barnes is a true beer aficionado. Having learnt his trade at one of Essex’s oldest breweries, he wanted to try out his own ideas and recipes, so he decided to start his own brewery and get back to the traditional roots of good beer with no additives or preservatives and all brewed by hand. In his spare time, Russ restores classic cars and is an avid musician. He can often be seen around and about in a little red MG, or in one of the local pubs with his many guitars or mandolins.
Russ doesn’t have a favourite brew, he just loves beer (and gin)!
Fiona started out labelling bottles, and now handles a variety of things from the cask register (tracing where all the beer goes and comes from) to running the bottling machines. Fiona is now also Red Fox’s admin and keeps the brewery on the straight and narrow as far as the VAT is concerned.
Fiona’s favourite Red Fox beer is Wily Ol’ Fox.
