The Chiltern Brewery wins Pride of Buckinghamshire & Berkshire Life Award

Brothers George and Tom Jenkinson and The Chiltern Brewery have been voted ‘The Pride of Berkshire and Buckinghamshire Life’ by the leading regional magazine title at their annual food and drink awards.

This special award recognises individuals and businesses which actively and proudly promote the great local produce Buckinghamshire and Berkshire have to offer.

Janice Raycroft, editor of the magazines and category judge, said, “Our pride of Berkshire and Buckinghamshire winners this year epitomise the very best of family businesses, carefully expanding over the years and constantly innovating with new products; providing employment in an area where local jobs are truly appreciated and looking to the future with huge positivity.”

The Chiltern Brewery is a second generation family business based in Terrick, near Wendover, Buckinghamshire and started brewing in 1980. George and Tom and their team take terrific inspiration from their beautiful rural surroundings and the geography and history of the county. A fox and beech tree feature on the company logo and beer names for their fine English Ales include John Hampden’s Golden Harvest Ale 4.8%, Beechwood Bitter 4.3% and Three Hundred’s Dark Old Ale 5.0%.

“This was a complete surprise and a real honour” said Tom Jenkinson, Head Brewer and joint owner. “To be voted pride of two counties that have such fabulous food heritages is superb.”

From inception the ethos at The Chiltern Brewery has been to brew natural, wholesome beers using 100% British ingredients – the best Class A malt and hops with great provenance and to mirror age old brewing methods. Thirty seven years on The Chiltern Brewery remains the oldest independent brewery in Buckinghamshire and the Chiltern Hills.
