Monthly Beer Club

Monthly Beer Club: April 2019. Focus on West Berkshire Brewery

West Berkshire Brewery (WBB) was founded by husband and wife Dave and Helen Maggs in a brickwork’s shed nearly 35 years ago. The second ever brew they produced remains their best seller to this day and Good Old Boy, a 4% Best Bitter has become a local legend in its own right. The range has developed dramatically since those
humble beginnings with crisp, clean, 4.5% Renegade Lager leading the way and innovative craft specials launching monthly in cask, keg, bottle and can.

Since 1995 the expansion has exceeded every expectation and the business is now based in 68,000 square feet of converted dairy barns set deep in the rolling Berkshire countryside.

Their focus is on creating a thriving business with a passion for beer, whilst striving to build a sustainable future. Surrounding the brewery is a superb natural wildlife habitat created by the recent expansion of their reedbed drainage system and they donate the spent grains for animal feed. The family friendly Taproom and Kitchen serves the full range of WBB beers and you can enjoy a meal while watching the action in the
brewhouse. It’s a stunning set up that is well worth a visit ifyou’re in the area.

The trophy cabinet is testament to their brewing ability and is bulging with CAMRA and SIBA awards including a National Gold. WBB are proud to be anchored by their founder’s principals, with a mix of old and new permeating everything they do.
