Halfpenny Brewery up and brewing again

Alan Watkins, who runs several pubs in the area: The Crown in Lechlade, The Radnor Arms at Coleshill, The Old Swan Inn in Lechlade, The Rose & Crown in Highworth and Ye Olde Swan at Radcot, is back doing what he loves – brewing real ale at the back of The Crown in Lechlade. Unfortunately, due to ill health, Alan had to take a break from producing his famous ales, but his beer will be available from the end of March. Previous brews have been: Anniversary Ale; Century Ale; Four Seasons; Ha’penny Ale; Old Lech and Thames Tickler. Initially only Old Lech and Thames Tickler will be available at two of Alan’s drinking venues, The Crown in Lechlade and Ye Olde Swan at Radcot.
