MALT THE BREWERY, Collings Hanger Farm, Wycombe Road, Prestwood
We can’t believe it’s nearly two years since Nick and Jenny Watson started up this delightful micro-brewery. Malt is now established as a first class addition to our local brewing community with Nick delighted at having won his first gold star from the Great Taste Awards for his products. And the brewery’s tasting bar is also proving a real hit with local real ale connoisseurs.
Jenny said: “There’s a real buzz in the brewery on Fridays and Saturdays when the tasting bar is open; it makes the week’s work making real ales all the more worthwhile!”
With all this success, Malt The Brewery has recently taken on a new apprentice, through the government scheme promoting apprenticeships. Angus Wallbank, joined Team Malt in August as a brewing operative. He’s already making a significant contribution to the team as they increase production to meet demand.
Malt will be holding an open day on Sunday, October 12, to celebrate their second anniversary.
