Brewing a Partnership: ARJ Supports Tiny Rebel from the First Hop


From a stout to a sour, the world of craft beer is becoming increasingly popular. With many different flavours, strengths and drinking experiences, the craft beer revolution is changing the beer-drinking market, allowing small, local breweries an opportunity to sell on a large scale as demand continues to increase.

We have been lucky enough to see first-hand, the hard work and determination that goes into the overall process by supporting one of South Wales’ most recognisable craft beer breweries, Tiny Rebel – from the very beginning.

Tiny Rebel began its craft beer journey in 2012, brewing out of a garage in Newport. In the last seven years, the company has gone from strength to strength and now has 3 bars, hires 126 people across South Wales and exports its beer to 36 countries worldwide. It hasn’t always been plane sailing – but we have worked with Tiny Rebel from start-up to the legacy that it is today.

Taking a step back in time to seven and a half years ago, Tiny Rebel contacted Alan R Jones for some help when a customer had ordered more beers than they could fit in their van. Despite Tiny Rebel admitting they knew nothing about logistics, we sought to help them deliver the beer to an eager customer and the rest is history. From one pallet every fortnight, we now collect and distribute over 100 pallets a week for Tiny Rebel.

Ray Clegg, Managing Director at Alan R Jones, commented: “As a family-run business in Newport it is incredibly important to us to meet and exceed the expectations of all our clients. When Tiny Rebel contacted us seven and a half years ago we had the same values to help them, as we would with anyone. As local companies, we should support each other, and we are lucky enough to still be Tiny Rebel’s logistics company of choice and are pleased to have worked with them on their incredible journey of growth.”

Bradley Cummings, Co-Founder and CEO of Tiny Rebel, concluded: “Since day one we have always been able to rely on Alan R Jones. Many other logistical companies would have turned us away for such a small delivery, but we were treated with the same level of great customer service and understanding then as we are today. From one pallet every fortnight to now distributing our beer to 36 countries worldwide, Alan R Jones has provided unparalleled support in our growth and we know that nothing is ever too much hassle.”

We are incredibly pleased to have supported a local Newport brewery to become what it is today, to find out more about Tiny Rebel please visit:
