West Berkshire Brewery was founded in 1995 by Avid homebrewers Dave and Helen Maggs with a 5-barrel brewery behind a local pub in Yattendon. Over the next 23 years the brewery has expanded to the state-of-art 60 hectolitre brewery and packaging facility that we have now, still based in the picturesque village of Yattendon.

We pride ourselves on brewing with traditional techniques but producing ambitious beers which are served in pubs and bars across the South, London, and even further afield.

Our beers today range from the quality and traditional style of our Best Bitter and second ever brew, Good Old Boy to the light and refreshing Renegade Lager. Our brewers love to experiment with different flavours and brewing techniques and we all enthusiastically participate in product tasting, as do many of our visitors to the brewery.

We recommend that anyone visiting goes on one of our brewery tours. You will learn how the beer is made from the raw ingredients to the finished article and get up close to some of the most advanced brewing and packaging equipment in the country.

As well as producing and packaging beer we also have our own onsite Taproom and Kitchen where visitors can drop in for a quick pint of our selection of beers on tap or spend a lunchtime or evening dining on our hearty menu which our head chef has carefully put together to complement our beers. Our kitchen specialises in a simple, locally-sourced selection that caters for everyone, including homemade pizzas from our wood-fired oven and burgers from the charcoal grill, we also serve vegetarian and vegan options.

Finally, if you want to take any of our beer home with you to drink in the comfort of your home or get yourself a t-shirt or pint glass as a souvenir, you can to stop off in our brewery shop. Not only can you get yourself some of our awesome merch, but also other beer and tipple produced by other small local producers.
