The Big Drop team

We’re a small team of experts dedicated to making great beer. You’ll never catch Big Drop brewing anything over 0.5% ABV.

Rob Fink

Founder & CEO

Big Drop’s founder, Rob Fink, is no stranger to challenging well-established business models. In 2010 he co-founded City law firm, Fenchurch Law having spotted a gap in the market for bringing claims against insurance companies. The firm continues to be a success – being named Boutique Law Firm of the Year title in 2018.

Rob applied similar upside-down thinking for his next career turn when – in 2016, aged 38 and having recently become a father – he found himself bucking the trend of his native City lunchtime drinking culture by seeking out low alcohol drinks. Massively underwhelmed, he wondered… why doesn’t anyone make alcohol-free (AF) beer that tastes just as good as full-strength beer?

James Kindred

Co-founder & Creative Director

Like Rob, co-founder James enjoys nothing more than challenging industry norms with creative thought and good dollop of disruptive strategy.

In 2013 he founded online booking system, Inn Style, which generated over £52m in revenue for its accommodation customers in 2018. The platform continues to disrupt the TravelTech space and is now considered a market leader.

Prior to moving into TravelTech, James worked as Creative Director for a number of award-winning creative agencies producing campaign and packaging creative for premium FMCG drinks brands — from beer to champagne to adult soft drinks.

Johnny Clayton

Head of Production

Johnny is a rule-breaking, Royal Enfield-riding, awarding-winning experienced professional brewer, with an exceptional pedigree.

He was Lead Brewer for Wild Beer Co 2012-2015 and then moved on as a freelance consultant, helping start-up and improve several breweries in the UK and mainland Europe.

Johnny joined the Big Drop team full-time in January 2019 and manages production and research & development.

His in-depth knowledge of brewing and lack of respect for rules allows him to create arguably the finest low abv beers on the planet.

Nick Worthington

Commercial Director
