The Donnington Brewery
Upper Swell, near Stow-on-the Wold
The Donnington Brewery was founded by Richard Arkell in 1865 and has remained in the Arkell family ever since. Voted the ‘Best Small Brewery’ by the Good Beer Guide in 2010, the brewery is still powered by the original mill wheel, which drives the pumps and machinery, and the hillside spring gives the beer its unique flavour. Located in a valley near Stow on the Wold, it’s been producing beer for over 150 years. The brewery now owns 17 pubs across the area and produces around 10,000 pints a week of its house beers BB (3.6% ABV), SBA (4.4% ABV) Cotswold Gold (4.0% ABV) and Double Donn (4.4% ABV). Sadly the brewery cannot accommodate tours, but why not visit one of their inns and try one of their brews? You can also buy Donnington Beer through The Donnington Brewery website.
