Shock as middle child receives attention
Eldest children are reeling as news spreads of a Middle Child whose attempts to steal the limelight have actually come to something in the community of Molesey in Surrey.
Cat-lover Fraser (53), a middle child, known for his loud shirts and attention-seeking jokes and avid runner Sam (42), a youngest child, have brewed the first releases for ‘Middle Child Brewery’. Justifying the attention from every angle, we cover the story in full in our Births, Deaths and Marriages.
Fraser was born a middle child. Driven to seek attention and work tirelessly to get it. Luckily, he was also born to make beer.
Sam was born a youngest child. Destined to take risks with no particular direction for his energy. Fortunately, he met Fraser.
This is Middle Child Brewing, born from a love of homebrew and high quality craft beer. Born Independent.
Fraser was destined for attention-seeking from birth. Born into the middle child role, he quickly learned he was going to have to work hard for attention. He tried playing up, bad jokes and lairy shirts. It wasn’t until his 40s that he cracked it, dived head-first into homebrew, and came up covered in awards. He had found his spotlight and the attention was even more intoxicating. In his own words “Why should it just be me drinking my beer? Everyone should be drinking my beer.”
Sam was destined to take risks, he started homebrewing because it looked interesting and didn’t think about the practicalities until the freezer was full of hop variants and there were fermentation bins in the bathroom. As a youngest child, he didn’t have the usual weights of self-doubt and fear of failure. He believed that anything was possible, including going pro with Fraser.
