When you come to England, it’s a little hard not to partake in the drinking culture, or at least sit down with a few friends and family members to have a pint. In the Cotswolds there is no shortage of places to meet for a drink or two, but who is providing the best brew? Visiting the Cotswolds is usually about experiences. You want to take in the stunning scenery, eat delicious locally sourced food, have a nice drink, and visit some of the local shops and stores. Well one of those local “shops” to stop along at is the Cotswolds Brewing Company.
The Cotswold Brewing Company has been listed in the top 10 breweries in the Cotswolds. With a quirky team, they have pulled their inspiration from Bavaria. This company has combined Czech and German brewing techniques to create a traditional, but modern lager. Boasting the title of making the UK’s best lager, this brewery is definitely a place to try out if you have some time. Their core range of lagers include Unfiltered Helles, 22 Lager (which happens to be vegan), 3.8 Pilsner,, a Premium Lager, an American style IPA, as well as some additional ciders. The brewery is based on Burton on the Water and they frequently encourage tourists and British citizens alike to come out and see their process and how the lager is made from scratch. If you happen to be a lager enthusiast and are wanting to check out this brewery as a part of your time in the Cotswolds, the Cotswold Brewing Company offers tours for your convenience. This company understands that you are here for an experience and as such, each tour is accompanied with a tasting session!
