The Chiltern Brewery is the oldest independent brewery in the Chilterns.d
We are George and Tom Jenkinson, brothers and directors of our family run brewery. Founded in 1980 by our father and mother, Richard and Lesley Jenkinson, we remain the oldest independent brewery in the Chiltern Hills and Buckinghamshire.
Located on an old working farm in the heart of the Chiltern Hills, the emphasis has always been to produce natural, wholesome beers using the best, class A malt and hops sourced in England. Our brewing process mirrors age-old methods and our beers are brewed with skill, passion and integrity. We have always been proud to support British farmers and all of our ingredients have a good provenance.
Our brewery has grown steadily over the years with the dedicated help of other family members and a strong team. The brewery shop sells our full range of bottled and draught beers; plus locally made wines, ciders, condiments and a delicious range of products such as fresh beer bread, malt fudge, beer cheese and fruit cake that are all made using our fine ales.
In the last few years we have taken over The Farmers’ Bar at The King’s Head in the heart of Aylesbury, which is now award winning. This has become popular with local people as a place to relax and enjoy our full range of beers along with craft beers, guest beers and ciders, a range of wines from the Rothschild Estate and a great lunchtime menu.
