Our Story

by Steve

On the 7th October 2018 my brother died. Ben collapsed at the finish line of the Cardiff Half Marathon and passed away instantly when he went into cardiac arrest. He was 25 years old, fit and healthy.

Rob and I had worked together for a number of years, and my friendship with him was one that I came to appreciate much more fully in the time following the half marathon. His support is something that I will always be grateful for.

In our time working together we would often talk about joint business ventures that would be fun to do, a brewing company among them. When I returned to work Rob said, “Let’s stop talking about it, let’s go for it, life’s too short, let’s have some fun!” And so Frank+Otis was born.

As this venture is inspired by Ben, we want it to be a tribute to him and to reflect his values. Ben was great at pulling people together, organising social events, always hosting BBQ’s or pizza nights at our family home. He was happiest when surrounded by friends or family and with a good beer in his hand.

This is what Frank+Otis is about, bringing people together over a beer, sharing good times, developing relationships, having fun and making memories.


Why the name?

Frank+Otis is named after our dogs. Dogs are positive, fun-loving companions and are never happier than when they are with you. We felt that these qualities encapsulated a lot of what we as a company are about. Also we thought the names worked really well together!

Rob got Otis when he quit his job to start a new business and needed company in the house. He always loved dogs as a child, especially labradors and Otis brought that and more.

Steve’s wife got Frank for him after his brother died. Frank is a fun and mischievous Jackapoo and has brought a lot of positivity to the family.
