Brewing at Uley began in 1833 at Price's Brewery. After a long gap, the premises were restored
and Uley Brewery opened in 1985. The brewery has its own spring water, which is used to mash
with Tuckers Maris Otter malt and boiled with Hereford hops. No sugar or additives are added.
Uley serves 40-50 free-trade outlets in the Cotswold area and, says owner Chas Wright, contrary
to 'decline in cask ales, we have never been busier!'
