Hook Norton is one of the best known names amongst independent brewers. Started by John Harris, a farmer and maltster in a little known Oxfordshire village 150 years ago, it is still run by his descendants five generations later and has achieved a reputation he could not have imagined. Beer is still brewed in the remarkable building erected by his energetic son-in-law Alban Clark between 1899 and 1900, using some of the original equipment, including a steam engine which may be the last one in England still doing the daily work for which it was designed. The brewery museum is an insight into the brewing heritage and the history of the brewery building. Our visit to the brewery will include a guided tour of the brewery itself, and a visit to the brewery museum and visitors centre. After this we will ravel north out of the village to enjoy lunch (and more Hook Norton beer) at The Gate Hangs High.
