The Aylesbury Brewhouse is opening today - bringing brewing back to Aylesbury after a gap of around 75 years.

Located behind the Hop Pole on the Bicester Road, the Aylesbury Brewhouse Co is run by Hop Pole owners, Mark and Phil Stevens of the Vale Brewery in Brill.

Phil Stevens says "Where better to place a new brewery than behind an award winning real ale pub. We will be giving free reign the creativity of our brewers to devise beers to delight our customers with these Limited Edition beers"ABC Brewhouse

The original Aylesbury Brewery Company stopped brewing in 1937, although the offices and ABC brand with the Aylesbury Duck logo continued for many years. First under the ownership of Ind Coope & Allsopp and then later Allied Breweries, until the offices were closed in 1989.

The New Aylesbury Brewhouse has officially opened today - by famous beer expert, writer and real ale champion Roger Protz. The new ABC beers will be available for tasting for the first time.

In addition a beer festival with a range of over 30 different beers will be held over the same weekend. A fantastic range of acclaimed beers with different strengths styles and colours has been selected so that there is sure to be something for all tastes.

Local musician John Otway will be visiting to lend his support this weekend, trialing the new local ales on offer and bring the curtain down on the weekend festival.

Ian Mackay, General Manager, told Mix96 "This is a very exciting time for us at The Hop Pole and represents a big commitment to local beer lovers and the opportunity for them to taste Aylesbury beer for the first time in nearly 75 years."
