They distribute UK-wide and export to 18 countries around the globe.
And on explaining why they are different. Fierce state: "We don’t make boring beer. Our beers are totally packed with flavour. We are passionate about provenance too, so we use local ingredients, services and equipment where possible.
"We are pretty ambitious, but we also recognise the huge importance of great personal service. We love our #FierceFamily – and try our best to look after them well."
