A lifetime of dedicated research and pursuit of the perfect pint culminated in the conception and birth of Philsters Ales @ Beehive Brewery in 2014.
No records exist of when the first brew was made at Beehive but it's my guess it would not have taken the thirsty farm workers of the 16th Century too long to get a brew on the go!
The almost sub tropical microclimate of the Haseleys and Miltons in beautiful South East Oxfordshire gives the local barley and wheat the perfect characteristics to form the body, Water from the Chiltern Hills gives the life. Our carefully chosen hops from local hedgerows and around the world provide the soul.
Our recipes, passion, traditional brewing techniques, patience, appreciation of what makes a really good beer reflect in everything we brew.
In 2019 Philsters outgrew Beehive, and can now be found a couple of miles away at Milton Common with bigger kit but the same principles.
Philsters are very proud to be recognised and included in the 2017, 2018 and 2019 Campaign for Real Ale (CAMRA) Good Beer Guide.
