We stock our cellar with beers and cask ales from Brakspear & Marstons breweries. Brakspear has a long heritage for brewing locally.
Since 2002, much of the original brewing plant was moved to the Wychwood brewery in Witney, West Oxfordshire (owned by Marstons). Following a major refurbishment of the Wychwood brewery Brakspear Bitter is still handcrafted in the original copper and the famous Henley ‘Double-Drop’ fermentation system.
In May 2013, Brakspear re-established their brewing roots in Henley, opening the Bell Street Brewery. They spend their time brewing classic Brakspear ales like Brakspear Special (brewed all year round), Brakspear Mild and Brakspear Old, whilst trying some new beers like Honey Bee, supporting Friends of the Earth and Blooming Marvellous, supporting Henley in Bloom. We, like Brakespear encourage people to drink beer to support their local community. Everyone’s a winner!
The current range of Brakspear Beers includes the famous ‘Double-Dropped’ Brakspear Bitter and Brakspear Oxford Gold blonde beer, as well as a range of seasonal cask ales including old favorites such as Hooray Henley and Oh Be Joyful.
But we don’t just sell Brakspear beer. We like to promote variation in real ales, therefore we have offer a wide selection of cask ales available all year as well as a great seasonal ale calendar with a plenty of choice for our beer enthusiasts.
