Hooky On Tour Bringing Free Beer And Cheer To A Pub Near You

Hook Norton Brewery will be bringing their 175th Anniversary celebrations to their pubs in a unique way over the next few months.

‘Hooky on Tour’ will see the brewery visiting all of their pubs using a variety of different modes of transport – walk, cycle, motorcycle, Land Rover and even Shire Horse. Whilst they are in the pub, Hook Norton beers will be free of charge so customers can raise a cheer and a beer. The brewers will be on hand to talk all things beer and give away prizes in a quick fire, extremely easy pub quiz!

Managing Director, James Clarke said “As a brewery, we would obviously be nothing without our pubs who look after and serve our beer at its best quality. We wanted to visit them all to say thank you and celebrate everything that is great about the local pub.’

The first tour date is April 1st from noon where James will be riding the brewery’s Shire Horse Brigadier to The Pear Tree Inn, The Sun Inn and The Gate Hangs High in Hook Norton and whilst James and Brigadier are outside the pubs people can enjoy free Hook Norton beers.

Hooky on Tour dates can be found here.

Established in 1849, Hook Norton Brewery in the village of Hook Norton is celebrating 175 years of beer and brewing this year. The family owned brewery is still fiercely and proudly independent and produces award winning ales, lagers and stouts in its unique Victorian Tower Brewery, an extraordinary building of brick, ironstone, cast iron and timber with much of the originally installed brewing machinery still very much in use today.

Hook Norton Brewery is open 7 days where you can enjoy brewery tours, shop, museum, Malthouse Cafe and meet their shire horses who still deliver the beer by horse drawn dray.
