Wye Valley Brewery‘s Hereford Pale Ale (HPA) is an easy-going real ale that brings people together. Their brewers have let locally grown Target and Celeia hops hang out with Maris Otter pale malt to give this understated brew its pale straw colour, citrus hop aroma and a balanced bitter finish.

The History of Wye Valley Brewery
Wye Valley Brewery is a family business. Wye Valley Brewery was started by former Guinness brewer, Peter Amor, in the summer of 1985. After brewing for Guinness, Peter Amor decided to branch out on his own. He began brewing from the back of a pub in Canon Pyon in Herefordshire but soon moved to the old stable block of The Barrels in Hereford – Wye Valley Brewery’s first pub.
Meanwhile, after studying at Young’s brewery in London, Peter’s son, Vernon Amor, joined the brewery to help with the demands of the growing business. By 2002, the brewery had outgrown its stable block at The Barrels and Peter and Vernon were on the look-out for bigger premises. A 9-acre former cider mill in Stoke Lacy became Wye Valley Brewery’s new home.
