Some might say that opening a craft brewery during a pandemic is a bad idea. Our Lettings Manager, Richard Warrilow, would say otherwise.

Richard has been a member of the Louis Taylor family for coming up to a decade now. As an experienced Lettings Manager, he is well placed to provide you with the best possible advice whether you are a new to the world of lettings or have a larger portfolio. He is known for his hands on approach and is involved in all aspects from rental appraisals to final inspections giving unique insight into lettings process.

In conjunction with his dedicated team he can be sure to provide you sound and practical advice whatever your lettings needs.

Outside of the world of lettings Richard is an avid traveller which has organically grown into a love for craft beer. In pre-pandemic times he world regularly scour the globe in search of the perfect pint. Nowadays he brews them himself.

This desire to travel and seek out beer has led to an interesting side project into the world of brewing.

During late 2020 with significant restrictions in place both at home and abroad and with little chance to engage his hobbies, he decided to set up a microbrewery in conjunction with friends and family. Kickabo Brewery was created, bringing the beer styles of the world to Stoke-on-Trent.

It was in October 2020 that, with assistance from the Commercial Team at Louis Taylor, Kickabo Brewery moved into their premises in Burslem and since have been serving the community with an eclectic range of beers inspired by their travels around the globe.
