Brewing in Gloucestershire by Geoff Sandles

By Geoff Sandles

‘Gloucestershire is a negative county for genuine ale’: that was once the unhappy evaluation of the county’s brewing background within the 1976 strong Beer consultant in response to the crusade For actual Ale. simply breweries have been in operation then, delivering in basic terms 4 actual ales. the ever present Whitbread PA was once effortless to discover, however it took a decided attempt to find the delights of XXX, BB and SBA from the extremely popular and picturesque Donnington Brewery close to Stow at the Wold. It used to be all a miles cry from the honor days of brewing in Gloucestershire, while so much cities may possibly boast their very own neighborhood brewery, generating beers of personality. It’s tempting to be overly sentimental concerning the closure of much-loved breweries corresponding to Wintle’s woodland Brewery of Mitcheldean, Tayler’s Cotswold Brewery of Northleach etc … yet there have been financial and social elements that made such rationalisation inevitable.

With the closure of the Whitbread plant life Brewery in Cheltenham in 1997, it used to be feared that the wealthy historical past of brewing in Gloucestershire was once less than risk. in spite of the fact that, approximately two decades later, Gloucestershire is awash with breweries generating really very good and precise beers. certainly, beer drinkers have by no means had it higher. Cheers!
