Brewery Raises the Bar

Not being someone who will juggle drinking and driving, it was a sadly sober visit to the West Berkshire Brewery today - but it was soon livened by by the colourful Dave Maggs, who is clearly passionate about his ales.

While the product is perfect in the eyes of many, it is the enthusiasm of Dave and his team at the West Berkshire Brewery who drive the company forward amid a closed shop of brewery-owned pubs that frown on free enterprise. Thankfully there are plenty of pubs who do stock their ales, but there could always be more.

It is crazy to think this thriving, but distinctly small brewery, will soon be the largest in Berkshire when Courage leave Reading, but as anyone who has enjoyed the specialist brews conjured up in Yattendon will tell you, big isn't necessarily better and small is beautiful!
