ONE NIGHT DOWN OUR LOCAL-PUB IN SHOREHAM-BY-SEA IN EARLY 2015, ME AND MY OLD-MAN IN A STATE OF ALE INFUSED OBLIVION GOT CHATTING AND DREAMING ABOUT PLANES AND BREWING...
Dad (Chris Tripp) couldn't stop talking about his old days at (a now defunct Aerospace Simulator Company in Lancing) and well me (Simon Tripp), I loved my job selling speciality beer in Central London. So we took some time-out to do a bit of plane-spotting and experiment with a great many brew-kits. The rest is just a distant vapour trail.
Now our love for everything art deco, aviation and beer has led to us to start-up Wingtip Brewing Co, with our good friends Adam and Alex at Andwells Brewery in Hampshire. The idea of investing heavily in a truck-load of hops
and a Herbert (the old man) is a truly terrifying thought. We're either mad,
or hoping this thing will fly!
Our dream is to have an aeroplane hangar at Shoreham Airport, brewing more great beers, having our much-loved customers over for a BBQ and party. Then perhaps after we have woken the next morning, The Captain could fly us out
on the Wingtip jet to a far-flung place to lay in the sun and shift our hang-overs! We'll leave it with you to decide who The Captain is!
