West Berkshire Brewery (WBB) was founded in 1995 by husband-and-wife duo, Dave and Helen Maggsin when they started brewing in a converted barn behind a pub. In 1998 they were joined by business partners, Andy and Karen Baum.
Based in Yattendon, West Berkshire, WBB produces eight different beers, including flagship brew Good Old Boy, Swift’s Pale Ale and Dr Hexter’s Healer. Its beers are stocked in pubs across London and the Home Counties, Oxfordshire and Wiltshire.
David Bruce, the serial entrepreneur who launched the Firkin and the Slug & Lettuce chains, became chairman of the WBB in March 2013, and in late 2013 it was announced that David was leading a £2m share issue along with the four founding partners to expand the business.
