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.

Wardingtons Ludlow Gin
Our award winning gins are distilled in small batches by their creator Shaun (Wardington) using handmade copper stills, ‘Joy’ and ‘Felicity’, to bring you the finest gin from the heart of the Welsh Marches.
Our unique labels are also handmade on a 1950s Heidelberg letterpress in the Cotswolds by printer David Lewis at Cherry Press.
We only use the finest natural botanicals: flowers, fruits and spices; some of which we forage and prepare ourselves, many of which travel from across the globe.
We won’t compromise on quality, so you won’t find any artificial colours, flavours or sweeteners in our gins.
Each bottle is lovingly signed and numbered.

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.

We are a family run craft cider producer located in the heart of the Worcestershire countryside. Our family, the Fletchers, has farmed here on the edge of the Wyre Forest for over two hundred years.
All our cider is made by hand here at Quakers Yard using only freshly pressed juice. We started planting new orchards with traditional varieties of cider apples fourteen years ago and we now use mainly our own apples, if we need more we buy from local Worcestershire growers.
Having farmed here for so many years we have a strong connection with the land and we do everything we can to keep it thriving. We do not use chemicals on our trees and we’ve planted traditional orchards that are a haven for wildlife. We keep sheep in the orchards, we’ve planted native species hedgerows and we have bee hives to help with pollination.
