About Us

Round Corner Brewing Ltd is a progressive and modern craft brewery based in the 1000-year-old Melton Mowbray Market in the heart of the East Midlands. We believe craft is about the relentless pursuit of perfection. This philosophy is why we’ve grown quickly from our humble beginnings in 2018 to now producing some of the most awarded lagers and ales in the UK.

In 2021, we were one of the highest performing breweries at the International Brewing Awards, one of the largest and most prestigious awards globally. Our Steeplechase Pale Ale won the Best Ale in The World Trophy, among a handful of other beers claiming highly regarded silverware. So far 2022 has started strong, with the team scooping five golds and one silver medal at the European Beer Challenge.

Round Corner Brewing Ltd was founded by Colin Paige, a Head Brewer who has built and run breweries across the world with 25 years commercial brewing experience, and Combie Cryan, a former City Business Director who gave it all up to follow his passion into craft beer. The pair met in 2003 in Wellington, New Zealand where they were both living and working at the time, before venturing to Melton Mowbray and starting their now beloved brewery.

With the recent installation of two 60hL CCVs, we’re now brewing more beer than ever, and in 2023 we’re scheduled for more capital growth, so it’s time to add to our amazing brewing team.
