Scrumpy-making farmer not ‘inspired by Brew Dog’
A FARMER whose bright orange cider makes you shit yourself is not inspired by Brew Dog, he has confirmed.
Arable farmer and part-time cider maker Tom Logan said he has no plans to build up and then sell his drinks-making business, and does not have a brand other than a hand-made sign on the roadside that says ‘Scrumpy’.
He said: “We get the apples, make the cider, then put it in plastic petrol-type containers, some of which have previously had petrol in.
“We have no shareholders because I only take cash, which goes straight in my pocket. The price varies depending on my mood. Sometime I take £25 a week.
“Personally I don’t drink our cider because it’s fucking horrible and apparently it can make you go blind, but some people seem to like it. Christ knows why.
“We don’t really have a business model other than ‘sell cider’. I don’t have a handsome youthful face, tattoos, or a friendly welcoming grin that says ‘please like me’.
“If you want cider, I have cider. Otherwise, stay away.”
He added: “Craft beer is for dickheads.”
