Where the magic happens.
The Wychwood Brewery is tucked away behind the main street of the market town of Witney, in the heart of the Oxfordshire Cotswolds. Witney is historically famous for its 3 Bs; bread, blankets and of course beer. Brewing in Witney dates back to 1811 and Wychwood Brewery is sited at the Old Eagle Maltings, built more than150 years ago when barley was malted for the town's brewery.
Today Wychwood brews more than 50,000 barrels of high quality crafted beer each year using traditional methods and is home to the Legendary Hobgoblin and Brakspear beers. In 2004 Wychwood Brewery began brewing Brakspear beers following a £1million refurbishment. Much of the original brewing plant from the former Brakspear Brewery in Henley on Thames has been incorporated into the existing brewery to create the Brakspear fermenting room with its famous 'double-drop' system.
Brakspear beers are brewed at Wychwood, alongside Wychwood beers, and are still supplied to the Brakspear pubs every week.
Our brewery tour experience takes approximately two hours. The tour includes a complimentary drink in our Cellar bar on arrival, a tour of the brewery, a tutored sampling session, all rounded off by a visit to the brewery store where all of our merchandise and bottled beers are available to purchase.
Brewery Store: Monday to Saturday 10am - 5pm. Closed on Sundays & Public Holidays
