Awards

We love brewing excellent beer and as the oldest independent brewery in the Chilterns and Buckinghamshire we feel proud that the quality of our beers has been recognised by such well respected institutions as CAMRA (The Campaign for Real Ale), SIBA (The Society of Independent Brewers) and BBI (The British Bottlers’ Institute).

Indeed some of our fine ales are multi award winning, as listed below and we have been honoured to have won other awards for design, innovation and our brewery itself.
