Tours by arrangement
The four-barrel Halfpenny brewery is to be found behind the Crown Inn in Lechlade. It is named
after Lechlade's famous stone bridge that spans the River Thames, just a hundred
yards from the brewery.
The Head Brewer, Graham Gerrard, has obtained vintage English oak barrels from
Britain's remaining Master Cooper, Alastair Simms, in Devizes.
The only Gloucestershire brewery selling "traditional beer from the wood". Bottle
conditioned beers are also available.
