Hobgoblin – legendary ruby beer

The Wychwood Brewery is tucked away behind the main street of the market town of Witney, in the heart of the Oxfordshire Cotswolds.

The brewery was founded in 1983 by Paddy Glenny and christened The Eagle Brewery. In 1990, the Eagle was re-named the Wychwood Brewery after the Ancient medieval Wychwood Forest which borders Witney.

Purchased by Marston’s PLC in 2008, the brewery now hand crafts circa 52,000 barrels a year, including the Legendary Hobgoblin beer, a supporting range of imaginatively named bottled beers, and a full calendar of limited edition seasonal cask ales.
