The Breweries

Details of the breweries will be confirmed soon – in the meantime, see last year’s participating breweries below:

Ludlow Brewing Company

Discover the brewing magic of the award-winning Ludlow Brewery, here in Shropshire and the Marches – an area fast becoming one of the leading brewing regions in the UK.

Located in a specially converted railway shed, just over 50 metres north of Ludlow railway station. The building has been fully refurbished to latest building standards and houses a 20 barrel brewing system. Ludlow Brewery produces award winning high quality ales right in the heart of the beautiful town of Ludlow.

Hobsons Brewery

We are proud to be an independent brewery based in Cleobury Mortimer Shropshire and this year we celebrate our 25th year of brewing. Our ethos for everything local has remained at the heart of the brewery, sourcing the finest ingredients and supporting our customers and community. We have grown organically to be the stand out brewery in the region, developing a range of award-winning cask ales and bottled beers. Notable awards include CAMRA Champion Beer of Britain in 2007 and SIBA Best Green Business in 2010.  Brewing the ‘Hobsons way’ has a common sense approach with attentiveness to quality, service and sustainability. Our beers are honestly brewed the green way with a serious commitment to wind, sun and waste power generation.

Wood's Brewery

You may have heard the phrase ‘Proud Salopians’, and that’s also what we’re about. We’re proud of our beers and we’re proud to brew them in South Shropshire. Why? Because our area has almost everything – super little towns, villages and pubs, friendly people and stunning scenery.

The Wood Brewery itself sits in Wistanstow village, right on the edge of the Shropshire Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (for which we brew a celebration beer). To the east is Flounders’ Folly, a stone tower sitting on top of Callow Hill. To the west, Sibdon and Wart Hill show up. To the south there’s Stoke Wood, overlooking English Heritage’s Stokesay Castle, and the ancient hill fort earthwork of Norton’s Camp. The lane that runs directly through our village, right past the brewery and our brewery tap The Plough, is an old Roman road – Watling Street.

From here we deliver our hand-crafted beers to many local pubs and shops and we go much further afield too, into the West and South Midlands and Wales and even up as far as the Potteries and occasionally down to the Home Counties.

We usually brew about 4 beers at any one time, and through the year, with our seasonal and special brews, that can amount to up to 20 different ales, each one quite distinctive from the next.

Clun Brewery

Situated amongst the South Shropshire Hills in the Norman town of Clun home of the Clun brewery. The brewery was cobbled together in 2007 by the owner of the White Horse Inn, Jack Limond and rocket scientist, Matt Williamson.

Previous experience came from Matt who had home-brewed avidly since his time at university and Jack’s memories of his dad straining hops through the greenest handkerchief in creation to create his highly potent Chaldon beer in the seventies. Truthfully Jack didn’t know a lot about ale except he liked drinking some of it and he loved selling it.

Our first foray into brewing was using a burco boiler similar to the one in which your grandmother would have washed her smalls. We used a five gallon plastic home brew barrel inserted into the burco to carry out the mash. This wasn’t entirely successful as often their would be a five degree temperature gradient accross the mash. Strangely though we managed to  brew quite nice beers.

We did this for about two year searching for the holy grail of replicating a brew. This however was not to happen or if it did we had forgoteen what the first brew had tasted like. So in late 2009 we decided to bulid a proper brewery. Using the help of the Rural Enterprise Grant at Herefordshire council we commisioned Graham Moss from Mossbrew to build us a 2.5 barrel brewery. This was slowly put together in one of the garages to the rear of the White Horse Inn at the end of 2010. Thus from January 2011 we have been brewing using proper brewing equipment.

Bewdley Brewery

We are a small group of people who are passionate about beer. So much so that we decided to bring a brewery back to Bewdley.

It has taken a lot of hard work and determination but we hope you’ll agree it has all been worthwhile. Together we bring years of experience from within the industry and by just enjoying a good quality pint!

We brew on a 10 barrel plant which produces 2880 pints per brew. We have capacity to brew four times per week, and so this gives over half a million pints per year.

Gillow Cider

We grow several varieties of traditional cider apples in the grounds of Gillow Manor in the heart of cider country, Herefordshire.

Untouched by chemicals or any artificial additives, our cider apples are made into traditional farmhouse cider the old fashioned way – milled and pressed by hand in our cider house and left to ferment and mature naturally.

This results in a superior product. Our cider has been available at selected CAMRA festivals for the last 2 years, to widespread acclaim. We also supply to local Herefordshire pubs and due to increased demand we’re looking into supplying our cider by mail order.

One of the characteristics of small scale cider production is the differences in each variety from year to year – our cider truly reflects the land and countryside from where it originates. Check out the varieties page for details of the apples we grow.
