When we are away on our family holidays, we always seek out a trip out to a brewery or equivalent. In Cornwall we visited the St Austell’s brewery and last year we visited the Glengoyne whiskey distillery whilst we were staying at Loch Lomond. This summer, we booked a holiday home in the Herefordshire countryside.
Our research of the area around Hereford led us to the Wobbly Brewing Company which was not too far from our Holiday home for the week at Swinmoor House. The brewery has a rising reputation, and we were keen to taste their beers. We got a lift to the trading estate in Wobbly on a warm August evening. The Brewery is in a lock up unit on the Beech Business Park. When we arrived, there were several comfy chairs and benches outside the entrance with the brewery is located towards the back of the unit. They had a terrific range of beers available and throughout the evening, we tasted many of the beers on the list. We also tried the gin flavours on offer. There was food available, and service was friendly and efficient.
By the end of the evening, we were the last customers and one of the team, Taylor, gave us a quick tour of the working part of the brewery. We left with a couple of cans of the Gold variety. Overall, I would recommend the brewery as a pub visit with a difference and was very similar to another outing that we took to the Burning Soul brewery in Birmingham. Such independent places should be supported as the beer is always served with enthusiasm and gives a different taste variety to the mass-produced offerings from the larger companies. Well done on Wobbly and yes, we did leave a bit wobbly.
