When Hatherly, a former banker, moved to Luxembourg for work, he thought he would only stay a couple of years. That was in 2002. “My story is a very familiar one. People often come to Luxembourg for their job and end up staying. It is a very, very nice place to live,” he smiles. With fond childhood memories of observing his father Frank’s home-brewing experiments, Hatherly quit working at the bank in 2014 and set up CCBC: “It was time to move on. I told myself, ‘you only have one life’.” He has not looked back. CCBC’s first commercial release in May 2015 was Red Bridge Amber Ale.
