  1. What is the history of Hook Norton?

    Sitting in its beautiful, mellow Cotswold Hills landscape, Hook Norton is a proudly independent and passionate family business. It takes the very best of its handcrafted brewing heritage and combines it with a thoroughly modern approach, to create a range of real ales for today’s drinkers to enjoy.

    Hook Norton is one of only 32 family-owned breweries and is the finest example of a Victorian Tower Brewery in the country. Of course, the brewery is about so much more than just its fantastic range of award-winning beers. At the brewery we have a shop, Malthouse Kitchen Café, free museum and meeting rooms. We have 35 pubs that are at the heart of many of local communities, serving great drink and food to the region.

Hooky’s best beers:

Best-selling beer:

Overall, Hooky Bitter is our best-selling beer, a subtly balanced, amber ale, hoppy to the nose, malty on the palate.

Best-selling bottled beer:

Our Old Hooky is our best-seller in bottles, a beautifully balanced beer, fruity by nature with a well-rounded body.

Favourite pint:

My favourite beer is Hooky Gold due to the citrus, hoppy flavours and refreshing nature.
