This year we have been restoring Gilbert White’s Brewhouse and installing brewing equipment so it can once again brew.
Brewing is a big part of East Hampshire’s culture and something that Gilbert White enjoyed doing in his spare time.
Bror Harry’s strong beer, which was brewed last Easter monday with the hordeum nudum, is now tapped, & incomparably good: it is somewhat deeper-coloured than beer usually is in this country, not from the mat’s being higher dryed, but perhaps from the natural colour of the grain. The barrel was by no means new, but old & seasoned. Wheat, it seems, makes also high-coloured beer.
We are now almost ready to start brewing again as our volunteers start undertaking their first trial brews and expect to go into production in the new year!
