The story of loxley brewery started in October 2015, when Steve Wesley purchased the Wisewood Inn with the vision to create a great pub to serve the local community, serving great beer & great food. Steve accomplished just that, with the Wisewood inn going on to be named CAMRA pub of the month in July 2017.
in mid 2017, with the pub fully established, attention turned to the idea of brewing the pubs own beer. Immediately, work started in the basement of the pub to turn it into a brewery.
In January 2018, work was finished and Steve and Peck (the Head Brewer) began formulating the breweries debut beer. Aptly named the Wisewood One, a refreshing blond ale. The beer was a massive success and led brewery creating 5 excellent ales by the end of july 2018.
October 2018 saw the release of the 6th beer from the brewery, a well balanced american pale ale.
Into 2019 saw the release of Wisewood 7 & 8, a 5 Hop Pale and a Session XPA respectively, both beers have grown into firm favourites in our core range.
In April 2019 we invested in our own micro bottling plant that lives inside the brewery. This has given us the freedom to get our brand noticed in a different environment. You can buy some bottles from us on our online shop or check out specialist bottle shops in Sheffield. Most of them stock us.
In August 2019, we aqcuired the keys to the Palm Tree Pub in the Walkley district of Sheffield. We have closed the doors for a few weeks to undertake a major refurbishment of the building and are looking forward to getting the doors re-opened as quick as possible.
We have come along way since our beginnings and if the next 18 months are as crazy as the first, then we are in for a hell of a ride!
