The tale of the Falling Star

Established in the 1800’s, Wickwar Wessex Brewery is part of Wessex folklore. Stories abound, telling tall tales of our beer & how they came into being. Take Falling Star, a smooth & fruity ale; they say that 214 million years ago a meteorite crashed into the site on which our brewery now stands. Some say the stardust made its way into the water table and that’s why our beer tastes out of this world.

We don’t know the truth, but we do know that fables should be told over a pint.
