Originally from West Belfast, Alan Mahon is the Founder of Brewgooder, a purpose-driven brewery which was the UK’s fastest growing beer brand in 2022. Alan started the business in 2015, at the age of 26, after contracting a parasite from drinking water on a trip to Nepal. Now a £3m company, Brewgooder has helped around 100,000 people through 140 projects worldwide, providing clean water and food to those in need. With the environment, social justice and water at its core, the company has been recognised as a ‘B Corp Best’ for the World Brewery for three consecutive years. Alan will share his entrepreneurial journey and the lessons he has learnt along the way.
