Copper Fox Brewery Ltd, founded in May 2017 by its sole owner Kevin Cameron, is an independently run small batch micro brewery and was initially called Sionnach Beag (meaning Little Fox) Brewery Ltd.
At that time we were based in Westhill, Aberdeenshire and working from the garage and a shed at home.
It soon became apparent that people who knew about our plans, could not remember the company name or spell it, which would make finding us on the world wide web difficult.
As a result, it was decided to rename the company and in December 2017, Sionnach Beag Brewery Ltd became Copper Fox Brewery Ltd.
The name Copper Fox Brewery Ltd, came about as the owner is a retired Police Officer and his wife’s maiden name is ‘Fox’.
Our mission is to create quality, modern, pioneering and exciting beers in a variety of styles whilst only using fresh, high quality ingredients. Every day we pour our heart and soul into the beer we make to ensure that it is fit for any occasion and for you to enjoy.
In 2018, the hard work began and having never owned a company before I had to start learning about the requirements of running a Limited Company, obtaining the required licences to operate a brewery, bookkeeping and accounts, sourcing materials and equipment.
April 2019, saw us produce our first batch of beers such as ‘MocFox’ a single hopped IPA, ‘Triple A’ an American Amber Ale, ‘APAche’ an American Pale Ale, ‘Amber Gambler’ another American Amber Ale but with a higher ABV than ‘Triple A’ with basic labels, that I used as market research.
The feedback received from customers was used to determine which style of beers were popular with the customers who tried them and those beers would become part of the core range.
