Weatheroak Hill Brewery

The Coach was one of the first pubs to offer guest real ales in the area before many other establishments caught on to the idea.

The Weatheroak Brewery was initially launched by David Smith to provide the Coach with its own beer in 1998. After the success of these beers, the micro-brewery outgrew the building at the Coach and in August 2008 they moved on to other premises to fulfil their ambitions.

Having gained a reputation as a brew-house pub, it was imperative to continue to brew on site so as not to disappoint. This prompted the set-up of Weatheroak Hill Brewery, and within 8 weeks we were up and running, with Mark Shepard as Head Brewer. Nobody could have predicted the success of the first brews of I.P.A. (3.8%) and W.H.B. (4.2%) and in January 2009 W.H.B won the Silver Medal at the CAMRA Redditch & Bromsgrove Winter Ale Festival. Following this came the Radford Ale (4.7%) and Shires Ale (4.7%). In addition to the Weatheroak Ales we serve a wide range of guest beers from other breweries, including Woods, Hook Norton, Hobsons, Malvern Hills Brewery, The Purity Brewery and a daily changing Guest Beer. The fine ales can be enjoyed throughout the pub, as our attentive staff are happy to bring them up to the restaurant to compliment a meal. We host regular Beer Festivals when we have up to 14 guest beers, usually with a theme. These run Friday to Sunday, but get in quick, as the beer doesn’t stay in the barrels for long! For forthcoming festivals check out our events calendar, so as not to miss out.
