Buckinghamshire Real Ales

Brill in Buckinghamshire was the inspiration behind Bree from J R Tolkein's trilogy, The Lord of the Rings.
It is now the home of the award winning Vale brewery and our equally inspirational beers. Having moved from Haddenham our new home features the brewery, offices and a brewery shop.
Our real ales are traditionally brewed, using only the highest quality natural ingredients, floor malted barley and whole cone hops.
Visit us in Brill to buy directly, visit one of our pubs to taste our beers or as a starter simply browse our web site.

Vale Brewery



Each month this year we will be bringing out a new beer and each will be specially created reflecting the season.

These beers are available in cask version in many local pubs and direct from our brewery shop in 70 pint Firkins, 35 pint polypins and 17 pint minipins. Please call 01844 239237 in advance to order.
