ABOUT US 

Our Mission 

Windsor and Eton are already famous for many things. The castle, school, river, racecourse and of course the Royal connections. For hundreds of years Windsor breweries were also famous for the quality and consistency of their beers but all that came to an end with the closure of the last brewery in 1931. 
 
In 2010 when we brought brewing back to the heart of Windsor, we wanted to add beer back to the list. In fact, we had a crazy idea to make beer the top attraction.  
 
We had spent our working lives in big corporate businesses and WEBREW was our chance to make a business that we would be proud of in every sense. From its ethical business practices; its environmental and community focus and great beers!”

OUR STORY 

2009 
Will, Paddy, Jim and Bob agree to take on Unit 1, Vansittart Estate with a dream to bring brewing back to the heart of Windsor, almost 80 years since the last Windsor brewery closed. 
2010 
23rd April 2010 our first beer Guardsman goes on sale. Knight of the Garter and Conqueror soon follow to create a range of 3 beers which we start to distribute to pubs. 
2011 
Windsor Knot is brewed to celebrate the wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton. Paddy and Will are founder members of the London Brewers Alliance. Closer to home we start to work with the Royal Farms to use their locally grown barley in our beers. Dray horses Major & Tom, start to deliver beer to local pubs. 
2012 
2012 – Triple celebrations with new beers created to celebrate the Queens Diamond Jubilee and the London Olympics where rowing events are held at Dorney Lake. Waitrose award us National Small Supplier of the Year. 
2013 
2013 – Two more firsts, as we screen the 6 Nations rugby in our brewery and Paddy creates our first lager, Republika, which goes on to win huge praise and multiple awards from beer writers and drinkers alike. 
2014 
The launch of Uprising beers brewed by Paddy’s son, Kieran. Showing that brewing runs in the blood, Kieran’s first ever beer Treason wins a bucketful of gold medals.  
All Black legend Zinzan Brooke helps us brew our first special rugby beer, Zinzan’s Drop.  
For the 800th anniversary of the Magna Carta we launch a special competition to create a commemorative beer with Paddy scouring local hedgerows for authentic ingredients, yarrow and ground ivy. 
2015 
We take over the lease of the George on Eton High Street and realise how much we need to learn about running pubs! More publicity as we win a national competition to supply 2 beers for sale in the House of Commons. In August, we hold the first Windsor Beer Festival featuring some of favourite beers from around the country. Bob and Jim travel to Waterloo for the 200th anniversary of the battle and crack open some bottles of special Waterloo edition Guardsman. 
2016 
Our new taproom opens with everyone welcome to come in and enjoy 10 freshly brewed beers on tap. Monthly comedy nights start with up and coming comedians delivering their gags in the brewhouse. 
2017 
We are invited to run the bar at the newly refurbished Old Court on St Leonards Road. Shakes-beer comes to the brewery as Butterfly Theatre brings Macbeth to life amongst the fermentation vessels and railway arches. A huge effort from everybody sees us awarded SALSA quality accreditation – now we have to do it again every year! 
2018 
We unveil our new brewery logo and our new recipe Windsor Knot in time for the world’s media to descend on Windsor for the marriage of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle. With amazing timing, during the wedding preparations we are stunned to hear that we’ve been awarded the Royal Warrant for supplying beer to HM the Queen. In November, Devon Distillery bring their mobile still ‘Ginnie’ up to the brewery for the first production run of our craft gin, Ricky Tick. 
2019 
The Swan in Clewer is saved from being converted to flats thanks to the combined efforts of the brewery, The Green Room School and the local community. Our fifth Windsor beer festival is our biggest and our best to date. Race goers at Windsor race course get to enjoy our beer at the newly opened Craft Corner Bar. Local amateur beer drinkers join our WeHomeBrew club to learn, share tips and enjoy a pint or two. 
2020 
All our 10th birthday celebrations are moved on-line as Covid-19 wreaks havoc worldwide. We receive great support from the local community as we work hard to supply beer for collection and home delivery. Through a Buy 1 Donate 1 scheme we are able to supply much needed hand sanitiser free of charge to over 20 front line charities and organisations. 
2021 
We survived lockdown thanks to the fantastic support of the community. We expand into Unit 4 and create a fresh new Brewery Taproom offering more space, more beers, more events and a permanent food offering. 
We also rebranded the Uprising range which included the launch of a new beer, SHOUT Session Pale Ale, in keg and the new look 440ml cans.
