There is a second brewery in the South East Berkshire CAMRA area after Bond Brews opened at Gardeners Green Farm, Heathfield Road, Wokingham.
The brewery joins the well regarded Siren Craft Brew as well as a host of other nearby brew houses across Berkshire.
Bond Brews have three regular beers – the 4.5% Railway Porter, described by bondbrews.co.uk as ‘a Brown Porter. Brewed using five blends of malted barley and wheat to carry a deep brown colour. While two varieties of hop hold a low bitterness level followed by a hint of rich, dark fruit.’
The other two beers are:
Best of British 4% – ‘Quintessentially British. Brewed using three blends of malted barley and wheat to provide a full bodied, rich copper coloured, nutty and biscuity session bitter. Two whole leaf hop varieties are used to provide a good bitter-sweet balance and a subtle fruity aroma, giving way to a lingering chocolate malty finish.’
Goldi-Hops 3.9% – ‘An English style Pale Ale. Brewed using two blends of malted barley and wheat to provide a light golden hue. While two varieties of hop add a moderate bitterness level and a refreshing hint of citrus on the tongue.’
