David Craddock setup the 4bbl Craddock’s brewery in 2011, to quench the ever increasing demand for quality real ale at his two Stourbridge pubs. After taking over the King Charles, the demand for his own ales outstriped supply so it became obvious that a much larger brewery was required. In 2013 he setup a brand new 8bbl brewery behind the Kings Head & Stable bar in Bridgnorth and created two new unique brands, Bridgnorth brewery (traditional organic ales) & Two thirsty brewers (modern craft beer).
