Freedom was the original micro-brewery of the late 80s and it gained a loyal band of followers. After a very quiet 10 years or so, Freedom is back, relaunched by ‘Brothers Brewing’ a family venture headed by Steve Knight, creator of the ‘Who wants to be a millionaire’ TV show, and film scriptwriter. The brothers have big plans for Freedom and will be producing perhaps the only true British premium lager beers.
