Wed 11th Sep 2013 - Pub entrepreneur becomes chairman of Truman's brewery
Pub entrepreneur becomes chairman of Truman's brewery: Malcolm Heap, founder and former managing director of Realpubs, which was sold to Greene King for £53.1m in 2011, is now chairman of one of London's newest brewers. Heap, who is a silent partner in the pub company London Ordinaries, led by Michael Buurman, has joined Truman's, which has opened a brewery in Hackney Wick. James Morgan, managing director of Truman's, which has taken the name of a former London brewery that closed in 1989, said: “With Malcolm’s arrival, we have the team to make Truman’s a great name in British brewing once again. Malcolm’s industry experience is immense and, most importantly, he shares my passion for Truman’s and everything that it stands for.” Morgan said Heap's experience building and leading fast-growing companies would prove invaluable as Truman’s embarks on the next great stage of its history. The team behind the revived Truman's started operations in 2010, having beers brewed under the Truman's names at other breweries, before opening their own £1m 40-barrel brewhouse, The Eyrie, earlier this year. Heap and his partner at Realpubs, Nick Pring, stayed with Realpubs until April this year, two years after its acquisition by Greene King, driving it up from 14 to 22 sites. Truman's is currently developing a new cask beer with the help of customers of the pub chain Nicholson's. The Great Truman’s Taste Test, which sees two competing beers continuously refined according to drinkers’ feedback, is taking place throughout the autumn, with the winning beer eventually joining the brewery's permanent line-up alongside its two other regular beers, Runner and Swift.
