One great brewery with two unique brands.

The Shotover Brewery combines traditional British brewing methods and ingredients with some striking combinations of English and new world hops to produce Classic  beers with a distinctive full flavour and complexity, whilst its sister brand, The Oxford Craft Beer Company creates exciting modern International Classics, amazing seasonal beers and our latest Vivid Dreams Series of unique single hopped beers.

History

Shotover Hill, which dominates the approach to Oxford from London, is rich in myth and history. Formerly part of the mediaeval Shotover royal forest it is now largely an ancient woodland and park and still carries the original old London coach road over its summit.

Charles Wesley was robbed by a highwayman here in 1737 and a Queen’s College scholar was said to have killed a wild boar by stuffing his copy of Aristotle down its throat.

It hosts many a famous name, C.S Lewis lived at the foot of Shotover Hill in Risinghurst. The woodland of Shotover was said to have inspired ‘Narnia’ and ‘The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe’.

His friend J.R.R Tolkien lived at Sandfield Road in Headington and Lewis’s garden, now owned by the Bucks, Berks and Oxon Wildlife Trust, is said to be the original setting for Middle Earth.
