The West Berkshire Brewery is a multi- SIBA and CAMRA award-winning [ [http://www.wbbrew.co.uk/awards.html West Berkshire Brewery - Awards ] ] [ [http://www.newburytoday.co.uk/News/Article.aspx?articleID=6760 Newbury Today | Gold and silver for local breweries ] ] microbrewery in Yattendon, Berkshire, United Kingdom. Founded in 1995 by husband and wife Dave and Helen Maggs, the brewery grew out of its original brickworks shed in Frilsham an now brews exclusively in Yattendon at a rate of 80 barrels per week.


The brewery was founded in the summer of 1995 in a dilapidated building behind the Pot Kiln public house in Frilsham (approximately convert|1.6|mi|km from the Yattendon site). It was within the first year of operations that the brewery won their first award.


By 2000, the business had out-grown the original site and so opened a second unit in Yattendon, thus increasing capacity to 25 barrels per week. However, this proved insufficient and in 2006 more fermenter were installed, increasing yield by 220% (a total output of 80 barrels per week). With this, the Frilsham plant ceased operations in April 2007.

In 2005, the brewery acquired their first pub - the Rising Sun at Stockcross. In 2007, the pub secured the CAMRA West Berkshire Branch pub of the year award [ [http://www.newburytoday.co.uk/News/Article.aspx?articleID=4432 Newbury Today | Stockcross pub clinches award ] ] .


The following is a non-exhausting list of the beers produced by West Berkshire Brewery - both current and former recipes.
