THE Wobbly Brewing Company is sponsoring the Community Pub of the Year category of the Hereford Times Food and Drink Awards 2018.

It has been an exciting time for the Hereford company which was first established in 2013.

It was set up by a welder who in his day job would regularly help construct brewery plants for the likes of Scottish and Newcastle and Heineken.

He decided to set up his own microbrewery in Hereford and last December the company was taken over. The brewery is run by managing director Jason Hughes, brewery manager Rachel Shepherd and head brewer Rob Wyte.

It is based at Unit 22C at Beech Business Park in Tillington Road, Hereford (just off Roman Road).

They brew six core beers which are sold nationally and also available in their new taphouse bar.

They are aimed at the the craft ale enthusiast and includes a modern pale ale called The Welder, a hoppy pale ale called The Wabbit, an export strength, aromatic Indian pale ale called IPA No 3, a golden ale brewed using German brewers gold hops called Gold, a stout called Crow and a twist on the American hopped amber ale called Amber.

And now the drinks are available at the newly opened taphouse bar.

They have thrown open the doors to the brewery and welcome customers to come and try their world class beers while being surrounded by the kit that’s brewed it. The bar is open Monday to Wednesday 5pm to 9pm, Thursday to Saturday 5pm to 11pm and from noon to 7pm on Sunday.

There will also be live events taking place during the weekends. Keep an eye on their Facebook page The Wobbly Brewing Co & Taphouse.

There will be live bands, indoor barbecues and “drink the brewery dry” nights.

The company also welcomes people who would like a tour of the brewery, including Christmas parties, stag and hen dos.

Jason Hughes said: “We are the only brewery in the UK (I think) that can do a contract brew: that can brew, can the beer, and distribute it all from the one brewery.

“We see ourselves as a major player in the craft beer market, not only for the fine core beers that we make, but also what we can do on the contract brewing for other breweries that nobody else can do.”

They can also make personalised beer where they brew a beer for you and put it in your own cans with your own design.

There is a shop online and also at the brewery.

The company held a taphouse opening party last Saturday night with live music.
