The key for brewing success

Wye Valley Brewery comes of age - the Herefordshire company is celebrating its 21st birthday...

Now one of Britain's leading independent breweries, Wye Valley Brewery made its first pint two decades ago.

As part of the 21st anniversary celebrations the firm is offering a day's beer making, guided by the Head Brewer, along with breakfast, lunch and two free tickets to the Beer on the Wye Festival.

New Investment

The family firm, run by father and son team, Peter and Vernon Amor, started life in a pub outbuilding at Canon Pyon 21 years ago, later moving to the old stables behind The Barrels pub in St Owen's Street, Hereford.

Three years ago, the company decided to invest over £500,000 establishing a state of the art brewery in the former Symond's cider mill at Stoke Lacy, a move which has increased the original output from 17 barrels a week to the current 250 - that's 72,000 pints.

Peter Amor, the company Chairman, trained as a brewer with Guinness.

His son, Vernon, who is now Managing Director in charge of the day to day running of the brewery, said: "We have an excellent brewing team committed to traditional methods and quality, with a top-class production unit put together over the last couple of years.

"Now, we are ready to further expand brewing output and put our brands in front of a much wider audience."
