Where it all began

Crumbs Brewing was founded by Reigate husband and wife Morgan and Elaine Arnell in 2017. After many years working in the corporate world they were keen to create something together with a positive message at it’s heart. Shocked by the amount of wastage their local artisan bakery, Chalk Hills, had to deal with they set about trying to find a new purpose for one lovingly crafted artisan product by creating a new one, beer! They are always very willing to come and talk about their beers and their business as a variety of events and conferences (your main issue will be getting Morgan to shut up). If you’d like to talk about ‘Meeting the Crumbers’ drop them a line at hello@crumbsbrewing.co.uk

The Bakers  – Chris & Rosie Robinson from Chalk Hills Bakery

Well known husband and wife team that founded Chalk Hills in Reigate, Surrey. Provider of delicious, organic, artisan breads to a range of deli’s, restaurants and pubs in the local area as well as via their shop on Bell Street. What’s less well known about Chris and Rosie is they also used to be publicans. A fact that meant they were very receptive to the random phone call received one day asking “Do you fancy trying to make some beer from your leftover bread??”

The Brewers – Goddards

Brewers of Crumbs first beer, Crumbs Amber, Goddards ended up getting involved by a very fortuitous coincidence. Having grown up on the Isle of Wight, Morgan had always been a fan of Goddards beer, it just so happened one of the specialists helping out on the early development of the Crumbs recipe also had links to the Island and owned a small test brew kit, stored at the brewery and ready for use!

The teams enthusiasm and support for the Crumbs idea as well as the undoubted talents of the brewer made them a perfect partner for the first brewing venture. That, and it earned Morgan a lot of brownie points with his Mum for visiting home more often!
