OUR BRAND VALUES*
All the barley and the majority of hops that we use (Fuggles, Goldings and Challenger) are grown in the UK with some even being sourced from Oxfordshire (some Maris Otter and Fuggles.) Every year we visit hop merchants and hop farms to assess the quality of the hops and the aroma. Following an age old system, hops have great traceability – when they arrive at the brewery we can tell the variety, the crop year, the farmer, the field where they were grown and when they were harvested.
The water used in the brewing process is reused as much as possible in the brewery and Hook Norton is proud to have one of the best records in terms of the amount of water used per amount of beer produced.
Wherever possible we believe in supporting the local community and the region in which we live and work. Quality ingredients are vital to our product and if we can buy locally, then we do, working hard to maintain close relationships with local farmers who can supply us with the raw ingredients we need to make the very best beer
Packaging & Waste
The brewery is also always on the lookout for ways to use the by-products naturally created by the brewing process. Spent hops are passed on for use as fertiliser and local animals are grateful recipients of the spent grains which are sent off to become cattle feed. Of course, local Hook Norton gardeners also benefit from the natural waste produced by our beautiful brewery Shire Horses!
Inspiring & Educating
Take a trip back in time and learn all about the history and heritage of Hook Norton Brewery and the village. Entrance to the brewery museum is free of charge.
Most importantly, there are absolutely no additives or E numbers to make it last longer or preserve flavour. Our beer is naturally good.
