A Message for our Customers


Brouder Brothers purchase Vale Brewery from Founders Mark and Phil Stevens


Joe and Jimmy Brouder have significant experience working in brewing having previously worked directly for Carlsberg UK, Timothy Taylor’s Brewery, Heineken UK and Star Pubs & Bars. Further to this, since co-founding sales and marketing agency 2EM in January 2019, they have worked with many more breweries at various stages of growth.


Joe Brouder said, “We have been aware of the excellent beer produced by Vale Brewery in Buckinghamshire for many years, I used to serve it in a pub I ran over a decade ago!
When the opportunity arose to purchase the business from Phil and Mark I could see the potential for the beers, in particular local favourite Gravitas, and the business as a whole. We are really looking forward to working closely with the existing team, as well as getting to know our new customers and suppliers. Cask ale is a category very close to my heart and I can’t wait to demonstrate how this product, unique to the on trade, can thrive


Jimmy Brouder said, ‘’We have lots of experience working with clients to grow the sales of drinks brands as an agency partner, we are thrilled to be directly involved in Vale Brewery as the owners. In addition to this we have an excellent group of shareholders with lots of relevant industry experience led by our Chair Simon Douglas."

Phil Stevens said, “The journey has been amazing, and we’re delighted to have passed Vale Brewery Company to (much younger!) brothers Joe and Jimmy. They have some great drinks trade experience and are keen to build on solid foundations and ensure the business and beers continue to be relevant and delicious!

It just remains for us to thank you so much to our staff and customers for your support over the years - we really couldn’t have done it without you!’’


We look forward to introducing to you all in the coming weeks and months in the meantime if you would like to speak please get in touch directly on the details below:
