Wychwood Brewery


Wychwood was founded in 1983 in Witney by Paddy Glenny in the maltings of Clinch’s Brewery. The name changed to Wychwood in 1990 after the success of Hobgoblin beer, first brewed in 1988.

The Wychwood Brewery is tucked away behind the main street of the market town of Witney, in the heart of the Oxfordshire Cotswolds. Witney is historically famous for its 3 Bs; its bread, its blankets and its beer. Brewing has taken place in Witney for centuries.

  • Hobgoblin – It is 5.2% abv in bottles and is described by Wychwood as a “Ruby beer”
  • King Goblin – A stronger and more flavourful variety of Hobgoblin, is a 6.6% abv “Special Reserve” ale
  • Scarecrow – formerly known as Circle Master, is a golden pale ale made organically at 4.7% abv
  • Goliath – a 4.2% abv traditionally craft-brewed ale with Pale & Crystal Malts for a sturdy ruby colour and rich malty taste
  • Wychcraft – A blonde beer, which is 4.5% abv and released as  aversion of the more popular pale lager style of beer
  • Piledriver – 4.3% ABV, a traditional malty amber drink with a fruity, hoppy character.
