We have expanded our shire horse and Dray team with the arrival of Winston and Lucas, two black, purebred shires.  Aged 10 and 8 respectively and standing at over 18 hands they will be working alongside the existing pair of Major & Nelson.

The shires deliver our Hooky beer to the local pubs on Thursdays and Fridays (weather permitting) and they will be out around Hook Norton on the first Saturday of every month. Brewery tours also include a tour of the stables so there is a great opportunity to see these magnificent horses. The shires team will also be venturing further afield attending various game fairs, country shows and beer festivals.

Shire horses have been an integral part of brewery life since day one and for many, many years were the reliable backbone of its delivery system. The shire horses will be looked after by long-serving drayman, Roger Hughes along with new groom Elizabeth Csak and will make their home in the brewery stables.
