Top female brewers in the UK

Georgina Young, head brewer, Fuller’s

Young began work at Fuller’s in 1999 as its production brewer, working her way up to become head brewer in 2017. Having studied biotechnology at King’s College, London she also holds a Masters degree in brewing and distilling from Heriot-Watt University in Scotland.

While working at Fuller’s, Young was instrumental in recreation of Gales’s beers, after Fuller’s bought the brewery in 2005 for £92 million. She has also been involved in the creation of Fuller’s beers including Honey Dew, Jack Frost, Oliver’s Island and Frontier Lager. In recent months, Young also supervised a collaborative project, working with brewers such as Fourpure, Cloudwater, Moor, Marble, Thornbridge and Hardknott, and helped install a ten-barrel pilot brewery at Fuller’s.

Young is chair of the southern section of the Institute of Brewing and Distilling and a member of the Worshipful Company of Brewers.

Fuller’s is also home to fellow female brewer Hayley Marlor, who joined Fuller’s on the graduate scheme in 2012. Marlor now works as a shift brewer in the pilot brewery at Fuller’s.
