Saturday 10 October 2015 saw a visit of seventeen consisting of ten members, wives and friends visit the Andwell Brewing Company which is based in Andwell Lane in Andwell near Hook.
It was eight years ago to the day that this micro brewery made its first pint of real ale and since that time has established a reputation for consistently producing beers of the highest quality. It brews five varieties of ale and has won awards in each of the last six years.
The tour was led by Adam Komrower, whose brainchild the brewery was when he achieved his ambition of wanting to be in a manufacturing business. Taking the group through the selection of the ingredients of malted barley, yeast, hops and water the tour lasted one and half hours. We saw all the Bavarian Brewery Technology equipment that produces his range of beers in this 20 barrel brew plant.
The shop sells all the varieties of beers produced on site including versions bottled in an adjacent business. And all on the visit received an Andwell pint glass and several tasters which surprised many of the ladies who had not really previously tried beers.
