Probus visit to Ramsbury brewery - 7th February 2024

A very good trip to Ramsbury brewery on the 7th February 2024. The photo was taken before we did the testing. We  had a delightful young lady show us round and we saw all the processes used for making Beer and Gin. The Ramsbury estate is huge and they grow many of the crops needed to brew the products. We saw the reed beds where all the waste water goes to be purified. All the heating is by a wood chip boiler fueled from trees grown on the estate. We finished up with a tasting of all the beers and gins they make. Lunch was taken at the Crown at Aldbourne. The food was excellent but what was remarkable was the large size of the portions. Thanks to Glen Parker-Hodds for organising the trip.
