If you would like to see the famous ‘Double Drop’ system for yourself, Wychwood Brewery run tours every Saturday and Sunday afternoon.
This two hour experience takes you through the complete brewing process, including Brakspear's famous Double Drop system, and after the tour you are invited to taste a range of beers, which can all be bought from the brewery shop.
These tours are extremely popular so pre-booking is essential.
Following the closure of Brakspear Brewery in Henley in 2002, a £1 million redevelopment of the Wychwood Brewery site was undertaken to move the brewing of Brakspear beers. This included moving and re-installing at Wychwood much of the original Brakspear brewing equipment, including the original Brakspear Copper, dating from 1779, and the famous Brakspear ‘Double Drop’ fermentation vessels, used to brew Brakspear Bitter and Brakspear Triple.
