This county gazetteer lists in alphabetical place order all the breweries known to have existed in Oxfordshire (excluding the “non-commercial” breweries of farms or country houses). This volume includes many well-known breweries such as Brakspear, Garne, Hall, Hook Norton, Hunt Edmunds, Morrell and many other lesser-known breweries. Note that breweries in the large towns of Abingdon and Wallingford, which were once in Oxfordshire but are now in Berkshire, are excluded – they will be included in a future BHS volume on Berkshire breweries.

  1. Phil Wood says:

    Wallingford & Abingdon are now in Oxfordshire but were in Berkshire (until 1974) – not the other way round.

    Any idea when the Berkshire book will be available, or who is compiling it. I may be able to help.
