Wye Valley Brewery - Stoke Lacey, Hereford


WyeValley BreweryFounded in 1985 by Pete Amor and now under the control of his son Vernon, Wye Valley moved from Hereford in 2002 to a larger plant capable of brewing 80 barrels a day. Their premium ale 'Butty Bach' has won several CAMRA awards and been 'beer of the festival' at Cardiff on four seperate occasions.

 

 

Butty Bach (4.5% ABV)

'Butty Bach' is Welsh for 'little friend'. This full-bodied, smooth and satisfying premium ale is burnished gold in colour, and certainly has made a few friends in its time.

It is brewed using Maris Otter and crystal malts, flaked barley, malted wheat, and locally grown Fuggles, Goldings and Bramling Cross hops.

HPAHereford Pale Ale (4.0% ABV)

HPA is a truly delightful pale ale. It's smooth on the palate, and boasts a citrus hop aroma leading to a balanced bitter finish. Locally grown Target and Styrian Goldings hops play an important part in making this such a distinctive beer.
With Maris Otter pale malt and malted wheat also being used, this is very much a pale ale with all the right ingredients.

Wye Valley BitterWye Valley Bitter (3.7% ABV)

A cornerstone of Wye Valley's range of real ales, this chestnut-coloured beer is a mouthwatering example of a cask-conditioned bitter.
Brewed using Maris Otter and crystal malts together with locally grown Target and Goldings hops, Wye Valley Bitter has a delicate hoppy aroma leading on to a full malty flavour and ending in a crisp, clean bitter finish.

Won 2008 Silver in the West Midlands CAMRA Bitter of the Year competition.

Dorothy Goodbody's Golden AleDorothy Goodbody's Golden Ale (4.2% ABV)

Nothing gives Dorothy more pleasure than the succulent aroma of the two finest English hop varieties, Goldings and Fuggles.

She selected these and Maris Otter pale malt for her Golden Ale as they're naturally a winning combination. The result is a crisp and zesty beer that is as comfortable served on its own as it is alongside chicken dishes, salads and pasta.

Won 2007 Silver in the Golden Ales category of the West Midlands CAMRA Beer of the Year competition.
