It is with immense sadness that we inform you of the passing of our founder and inspiration – Mike Field who died in the very early hours of this morning, peacefully at home with his family by his side.
Mike, who started our company in 1994 with the opening of the West Riding, was responsible for creating a culture and passion for real ale in his home town and beyond which would in turn put Dewsbury on the Real Ale map. He played a major role in the early days of Heavy Woollen CAMRA and leaves a legacy that we will continue to build on. A great man, he will be sorely missed by all those who knew him.
We would love for you to all to join the Beerhouses family in celebrating his amazing achievements and contribution to the real ale world by raising a glass of his favourite tipple, a real ale and “none of this lager nonsense” as he would say.
Our thoughts are with Mike’s wife Mary, step-daughter Sarah and his wider family and friends at this terribly sad time.
