Our team

You can’t make great ale without great ingredients, but it’s the people that make Box Steam Brewery the best in Wiltshire. You don’t have to like beer to work here. You have to love it.

  • Andy Roberts

    Andy Roberts The Guv

    Box Steam’s boss grew up in the pub trade and has a passion for two things - good beer and odd shaped balls. If there’s Rugby on the big screen and barrels in the yard he’s a happy man.

  • Philip Downes

    Philip Downes Master Brewer

    Having worked all his life as brewer, what Phil doesn’t know about beautifully engineering malt, yeast and hops into great beer isn’t worth a can of lager. He gives a fantastic brewery tour too.

  • Libby Elswood

    Libby Elswood Sales & Events Manager

    Libby is Box Steam Brewery’s very own Fat Controller. Except she isn’t fat. Everyone knows what they’re doing and when, how and why because she does.

  • Tom Downes

    Tom Downes Site Operations Manager

    Tom lovingly tends to every brew from milling to filling. The brewery’s copper and mash tuns are his mistresses and he's the romantic type. You're just lucky he'll let it leave the brewery.

  • Jake Doherty

    Jake Doherty National Sales & Marketing Support

    Closet rock star Jake looks after our wholesale customers. He earned his stripes in the wine trade, but we’re lucky enough to have him in our band.

  • Nicky Burston

    Nicky Burston National Account Manager

    Nicky has spent years working in the off-trade with the country’s biggest wholesalers and supermarkets. She’s on a mission to see Box in every trolley.

  • Emma Roberts

    Emma Roberts Export Manager

    While her brother keeps an eye on the Brewery at home, Emma handles diplomatic relations abroad, waving the flag for Wiltshire’s finest across the globe.

  • Gary Day

    Gary Day Brewer

    Tom’s right-hand man. They are the Batman and Robin of the brewing world, righting the wrong of mass production, delivering just flavours and righteous brews.

  • Maggie Taylor

    Maggie Taylor Financial Controller

    It’s a good job we’ve got Maggie to keep an eye on us while we focus on brewing. She looks after the pennies and the pints look after themselves…

  • Martin Cowdrey

    Martin Cowdrey Dray

    You’ll spot Martin trundling across the West Country delivery our casks of award-winning ales as if they were their own children.

  • Anthony Mortimer

    Anthony Mortimer Dray

    The only thing Anthony loves more than visiting our loyal pub customers with the latest delivery of Box beers, is Box beer.

  • Annette Decarteret

    Annette Decarteret Telesales Consultant

    Hear that phone ringing? Then you’re a pub who should be serving Box beers, but hasn’t placed an order yet this month.
