The Real Character behind the Great Beer

The Founders

In 2005 Paul Halsey and James Minkin established Purity with the mission of brewing great beer without prejudice, with a conscience and with a consistency and attention to detail, which is second to none. Both colleagues and team mates for Kings Norton RFC they both felt that the UK beer industry needed a shake up so after quitting their jobs at a national brewer Purity was born. From those early days of Paul, Jim and UBU the dog Purity has grown rapidly to the team we have now and put the Real Character into our Great Beer.
