Top female brewers in the UK

Charlotte Cook, lead brewer, Truman’s

Lead brewer of Hackney Wick brewer Truman’s, Cook started out at Scotland’s BrewDog after graduating with a law degree. Becoming production manager at Pohjala in Estonia, she moved back to the UK to join Truman’s in 2017. She holds a MSc in brewing from the University of Nottingham.

Cook oversees production of Truman’s range, including Swift golden ale, Zephyr pale ale and Raw lager at the 40-barrel brewery. Founded in 1666 in Brick Lane, for brief time during the 1800s Truman’s claimed to be the largest brewery in the world. However, in 1989, both the brewery and its pubs closed their doors. It was re-established by James Morgan and Michael-George HemusĀ in 2010, opening afresh in Hackney Wick.
