Folly Road Brewhouse

On Thursday 7th September we celebrated the official opening of Folly Road Brewhouse.

To mark the occasion, the Mayor of Devizes, John Stevens C.B.E joined us for a special ribbon-cutting ceremony, symbolising the start of this exciting new chapter in our brewing journey. 

The build started in 2022, with the state-of-the-art brew kit, provided by BrauKon in Germany, arriving over 14 days and 29 lorries in December.

Throughout 2023 the brewhouse, distribution warehouse and offices have been transformed through the hard work and passion put in by everyone involved.

The move enables us to continue to brew Wadworth traditional ales such as 6X, Horizon and Henry’s IPA as well as launch Folly Road craft beers to expand our range and suit an ever-evolving beer market.

Our beloved shire horses, Sam and George, were, of course, in attendance at yesterday’s event, along with the Wadworth team, local dignitaries and the supplier partners that have worked alongside us on this project.

After a brewhouse tour, the unveiling of the new Folly Road brand signage, ribbon cutting and speeches, Wadworth ales were flowing, pizzas were devoured and lots of fun was had.

It was a great start to an exciting future.

The full transition to Folly Road Brewhouse will be a gradual process, with some operations still taking place at our Northgate Brewery.  

Here's to the new adventures and great beer that await us in Folly Road Brewhouse.
