The Chiltern Brewery
This family owned and run micro brewery was founded in 1980 and was one of the first of the "new wave" micro-breweries in England. It is now by some margin the oldest working brewery in Buckinghamshire, the brewery has pioneered not only several new types of product with a unique beer relationship, but a revolutionary style of operation too. Please visit their website www.Chilternbrewery.co.uk for details of their products, tours, functions and the brewing process.
Rebellion Brewery Co.
The Rebellion Beer Company was chosen as the name for the new brewery. Brewing equipment was designed and purchased. Towards the end of 1992 all the planning had been completed and all that was left to be done was to find suitable premises. Eventually, two small adjacent industrial units were found on the Rose Business Estate in Marlow Bottom. The surrounding chalky Chiltern hills providing water high in minerals and salts essential for producing high quality and distinctive real ale. The first commercial beers were brewed and tasted in April 1993 and the company soon developed a good local following for its cask conditioned ales. By spring 1995 the brewery was running at it’s full capacity of 50 barrels per week. New premises were required for various reasons and at the beginning of January ’99, after the extensive renovation of two barns, the first brew was completed at the new site, Bencombe Farm in Marlow Bottom, 1 month after the closure of the old site. Please visit their website www.rebellionbeer.co.uk/ for details of their products, tours, functions, etc.

We were supposed to be going to the Reading beer Festival on the 5th May 2007 but on arriving there we found that there was a two hour queue to get in! So we turned around and went back to the Victoria in Strathearn Place London a pub that has been a favourite of ours for several years and a very pleasant evening was had by all
