The long-established Brakspear Brewery closed its Henley operation in 2002, but the production of its beers was taken on by Wychwood Brewery.

Brewing secret

Wychwood uses Brakspear’s original equipment to brew these beers, including the unique “double drop” wooden fermenting vessels, and its complex yeast strain.

Brakspear Bitter
